The big news in the garden this week is that we got some much-needed rain. Over the 48-hour period of Tuesday and Wednesday, we got two inches, which made all of my plants - and me - very happy.
The even better news is that the extended forecast shows that we have a chance of more rain next week. Let's hope it doesn't evaporate.
There were some firsts in the garden this week.

I always seem to be showing you pictures from my backyard, because, frankly, that's where I spend most of my time. But I do have a front yard, too. It isn't quite as large as the backyard and it is shaded by large oak trees and one magnolia tree.
The beds around the front of my house, near the entry, have fallen on hard times. Some plants had died and others were misplaced and needed to be moved. I've been working on that a bit over the last few weeks. There's still more to do, but here's what it looks like now.
There's lots of work to be done here. I'll show you how things progress in coming months.
