Yesterday was miserable. The temperature reached 87 or more. Hot, awful weather. I did very little. Okay, my plants got more potting soil and a bit of water. You know, because it's spring I wanted to bring my cactus and aloe vera back to life. But the heat was too much for me. I stayed in the house; I didn't even check the mail.
And then it happened. A few at first; a tapping on the air conditioners, the roof, the windows. On tv they warned of storms in a nearby county, not Robertson. But here it was- hail! HAIL! That means rain and lower temperatures! And OMG did it hail and rain.
My cactus, three in one pot, held up well. Today the world is leaf strewn, chilly, and wet. I'm in heaven. I love the rain and cold.
