We are the opposite here in Northern Ontario this summer. It certainly has NOT been a hot summer up here this year but it's certainly been wet since about the middle of June and I wish I could share it with those who need it so badly. Yesterday, we had a break from the rain so I finally got my weeding under control in the gardens but today's forecast is for heavy rain with thunderstorms this afternoon and this evening.
My flowerbeds haven't dried out in almost 2 weeks. I have to hide my planters in the gazebo to keep them OUT of the rain now because they are absolutely waterlogged and will die shortly if they don't dry out a bit soon!
We haven't had a nice cool wet summer like this in YEARS. I would say it's been well over 10 years since we had this kind of rain. The trees are lovin' it ... they're nice and lush. The flowerbeds and veggie garden aren't fairing nearly as well.
Doesn't bother me one bit. I will GLADLY take this over the fire threats we've had the past 10 years!
