Yeh. The rain here for a few minutes yesterday (10?) was a delight.
Also, I don't have to water today. My grosso lavenders and rosemary plants are pretty hardy plant souls, famous last words. One new mexico olive (Neomexicana forestiera) kicked the bucket last year, to my rue, as it was set opposite its mate on the other side of the yard (I like some symmetry with randomness between, in certain yards). Those are supposed to need no water at all once established. I guess two years of establishing wasn't enough.
Have a spanish lavender that is hanging on, newly planted this year. The guy that's making it without a blink is my dwarf pomegranate. I'm pomegranate plant keen, but have only grown the regular sized one before, back in CA.
Have a Caesalpina gilliesii (yellow bird of paradise, not to be confused with Strelitzias) living happily, from seed, in my kitchen; I'm waiting until the baking heat stops before I plant it. The one living in the back yard needs no care.
Another survivor without too much plant whining is my catnip. Or, catmint. They're similar; I had one of each, one being in a pot. The one in a pot died on me. Anyway, the one in the sand is a brave thing, whichever it is. I can't tell, via google images.
