It poured rain last night, but finally by mid-morning the rain stopped and the sun started to peek out. By afternoon it was glorious and sunny with a high of 72F/22.2C. Perfect weather! I puttered around outside all afternoon, simply enjoying the sun. I think that the plants are going to grow like crazy now that the sun has finally returned. This bearded iris has been a LONG time contemplating blossoming. I bet tomorrow it will be fully open!
