What the Rain Does
I snapped these a few weeks ago in the back when the big hot pink peonies and roses were out and my tomato plants were still small, when it was only raining every other day and my computer worked. The backyard roses and peonies belong to my landlady but I walk around in it sometimes. I garden in pots on our little patio and in a small 3 x 3 plot which she lent me. That's where I "farm". I think I am more a farmer than a gardener.
This week, there are no more peonies or roses, the tomato and basil plants are getting bigger and there is a beautiful silvery damp coolness in the air. It reminds me of the hills where we spent the monsoons in India. I am good in this weather.
