Gardening in the rain is usually not a problem for me, in fact I prefer a light drizzle to the intense heat we have been experiencing lately. A light rain keeps me cool and keeps the bugs away. It also cuts down on the amount of sunscreen I use. I do draw the line however at thunderstorms or torrential downpours.
Today started off great. A light rain was falling so I headed to one of my favourite gardens, located in the exclusive and very private setting of the Kanata Rockeries which were designed by one of the founding fathers of Kanata Bill Teron.
Then the dark(er) clouds rolled in bringing heavier rainfall and distant thunder…
That was my cue to head (run) to my van. When the downpour did not let up after five minutes and the thunder got closer, I headed home.
