There has been no rain for weeks. The street trees are drooping and the smaller ones are dying. Many people's gardens look parched, scorched, nearly dead. Without supplemental water my garden would be dying too.
Today the forecast said there was a 60% chance of rain. The sky was overcast, and looked as if it might send us some moisture. To tempt it, I washed and hung out some bargain fabric I picked up which will become the backing and border of my Easy St quilt.
