It really is raining! Finally! Now, there are going to be huge puddles, and all the trees and grasses and veggies won't be so thirsty anymore. The grass is finally going to turn green. I'm still waiting to get leaves. I feel impatient, but I now my impatience is from my eagerness. It's been a week or two since I planted the fertilzer spikes for my Redbud and my Kwanzan. The Redbud has a spike too close to the trunk, and the dripline looks to be 12 inches away from the trunk. I don't think it'll cause any damage since the dripline and the tree itself is so small. I also rearranged the bricks around my Kwanzan and piled a lot more dirt in there. My Redbud hasn't grown enough yet for me to rearrange the bricks. I'm so happy! It's raining! The plants are being watered!
