Can you hear it?

Can you hear it?
Listen carefully.
Yes, there it is, that soft pattering sound.
It's RAIN.
Not much yet, but anything is welcome after the last few hot days. The weather is so much cooler too, which helps the plants. I've just been planting out VERY late summer annuals - ageratum, dwarf cosmos, zinnias and phlox. They aren't very robust seedlings so I planted them in clumps of about 6 and watered them well with Maxicrop. I just wanted to get them out of the punnets and into the ground in the hope that we might get a brief flowering before it gets too cold.
