Last Sunday was a lovely, drippy day -- it was the kind of rainfall that brightens colors even though (perhaps because) the sky is dark and grey.
The tulips and daffodils are in high bloom. After four months of dry weather, I was afraid that the bulbs wouldn't be able to perform very well this year. But the February rains got everything growing in double-time.

What we still need like crazy is a gully-washer of a rain to give us massive amounts of precipitation. These gentle washings from above are appreciated, but we'd need hundreds of them in order to raise our water table and fill the pond.
