One thing about all this rain is that foliage is extra tall and thick. I've only had to water twice in May. Having two rain barrels helps too. It means a lot of toting and is more time consuming than using a sprinkler but it is the 'right thing' to do. The frothy white plumes of Goats Beard are tickling the branches of the 'no longer flowering' cherry. In the foreground you see the leaves of an abutilon that will bloom in shades of buttery yellow in late summer.
