It has been raining in Los Angeles through the weekend and the ornamental pear trees, Pyrus kawakami, have never looked more dramatic with their dark black trunks and white blossoms. My “dry creek” is actually running now, having served only a decorative purpose most of the time. I love what the rain does to my garden.
Epcot “rain garden” goes to work when the rain begins to pour!
This morning I ventured over to Fresh Dirt, the garden blog written by Sunset magazine editors and found a great post about “rain drums” that create a melodic sound when the rain beats down on them. This is the ultimate in sensory garden ideas.
