Yes, we've had our share of rain lately, but we also like to have a watering can of rainwater handy to sprinkle around the seedlings that are still gaining ground.
Some say that necessity is the mother of invention. In that same spirit I like to say that restrictions give life to creativity. It's amazing how creative people can be when they can only use what's already available to them.
My husband proves my point time and time again. But to our list of restrictions in this case perhaps someday soon we should add the requirement that it be... attractive. =)
