Thank goodness it’s Friday and that it’s not raining anymore. Our 8 in rain gauge was spilling over when we returned home on Tuesday, and it continued to rain up until yesterday. glass rain gauge

  1. You have a wonderful native plant collection. Love the berries on the beauty berry. If only the mocking bird would let them be. I notice you have a rain gauge like one I have. I wasn’t very smart when I bought it not noticing that the top of the tube was flared. Unfortunately it doesn’t give an accurate reading because of that because they didn’t take this into consideration. It needs someone to calculate the difference.

    1. Thanks Jenny! Luckily for me, the dogs and cat have kept the mockers and scrub jays away…for now. And I’ll have to look into getting a new tube! When I told my husband, he replied, “I know. I just liked imagining we got more rain than we actually did.” LOL I’m glad somebody let me know!
