There’s something magical about the rain water for plants. I can water and feed them to grow, but there’s something in the rain that gives them that complete burst of growth. We’ve had lots of rain the past two weeks and even though I was tired of it, after looking at the significant growth in my flower beds, I had to smile and thank God for his magic water (not to mention what I saved on my water bill).

To this: I also saved some money because I was able to use pine straw for a bed running along the house. I took advantage of my cousin’s pine tree droppings. Having wood mulch near the house worries me about termites so I was happy to use the free straw to cover this large bed. The confederate jasmine is in full bloom and smells so sweet.
