Here in Southern California and in many other parched neighboring states, we’re in a drought. Desperately needed, our glorious rain began four days ago. By Friday heavy rains gave us a thorough soaking, and the daylily bulbs I planted last weekend came up. No big thing, today I’ll buy a bag of garden soil and cover them back up. Other problems are traffic snarls, power outages and the threat of mudslides, but none of these compare to the problems a drought brings to an agricultural state.
In our yard, besides the rising bulbs, the torrential wind blew our huge umbrella into the pool breaking one of the slats. The base is so heavy I had to call our handyman to somehow lift the thing out.
