Rain! Lovely rain at last.
Not only have we had rain today but it looks like we have a rainy weekend ahead of us. As far as I am concerned, that is the perfect kind of weekend for this time.
And, to make matters even more perfect, in addition to looking like a wet weekend ahead, it is the weekend when we finally get to say a formal goodbye to summer, for on Sunday afternoon at 3:44 P.M. Central Time, the Autumnal Equinox occurs and fall will have officially arrived.
Earlier this week, Wednesday night or early Thursday morning, we got to enjoy the beautiful Harvest Moon, which is the full moon that occurs closest to the time of the Autumnal Equinox.
So, all in all, we've had several days of happy events in the garden this week, even as the plants themselves begin to wind down and show the effects of the stress of the long, hot, and dry summer.
I hope your week in the garden has gone well and that your weekend will be everything you hope for.
Happy gardening and happy autumn!
