Here Comes the Rain. Again.

after thunder and lightning and rain much of yesterday (and a few brief power outages), today started off with sunny blue skies.

but now the clouds have moved in, the wind has picked up and the temperature has dropped. my first look out the window seemed to indicate huge raindrops had just started falling, but closer inspection revealed those huge drops were actually crepe myrtle blossoms. the front bed is now covered in pale pink (or maybe it's lavender) crepe myrtle blossoms.

given that houston is down almost ten inches for rainfall this year, i don't mind too much.

I'm a bit concerned b/c my plants look likke they are getting overwatered now! :(

It didn't help that I forgot to turn off the automatic sprinkler system and it went off last night, further watering the already wet plants. *sigh*

several of my low water plants -- lantana, butterfly weed, various herbs -- are definitely resenting the wet weather, despite being in raised beds. and this afternoon my poor pepper plants were looking downright steamed.
