Of course, it is washing down a lot of the pollen, and the pollen is really bad this time of year.
This morning when I left Otis and Riley out, I noticed the back patio was covered with Lady Banks rose petals. There was yellow everywhere! The rain was washing down petals too! It looked so pretty!
It's continuing to rain as I sit here and type this late in the afternoon, and rain is in the forecast for tomorrow too.
(sigh) Oh well, April showers will bring May flowers.
