A Bit of Rain


As a friend of mine has said recently, it's been rainy. This three inches is in the last 36 hours, and I dumped 2 inches out just before that started. We had part of one day dryer in the last five. I managed to plant a few Mother's Day flowers and pull a few weeds from around my roses before total boredom set in for the 10-year old. The good news is the sump pump well appears wet, which means the really crappy job of French drains we had installed must have worked. I didn't hear the pump start up, but maybe just because it didn't get quite deep enough in water. Still better than wet floors from the water feature that used to be the basement wall. If the drains didn't work we were going to decorate the wall with moss and just live with it. Very Japanese, though we are not.

Or, you could have done this: http://www.eltlivingwalls.com/ which is more diverse than simple moss.
