As previously stated, it rained yesterday. This morning, the sun is out and the waters (in the basement and in the yard) have receded. The ground is like a sponge. Hopefully warmer temperatures and some sunlight will dry things out a bit. I've got some leaves I'd like to mulch today, but it might not be possible. The rain gauge collected 1.5" of rain. The local forecast says we got .87". Since it was coming in sideways half the evening, I'm thinking we got more, but the instruments were unable to measure it.
Yesterday, I noticed the first roots growing on the Honeycomb buddleia. I took a photo this morning to compare, 24 hours later.
versus yesterday at 8:30am.
It's just plain water in the cloner. More roots appeared on other cuttings overnight. Some cuttings were potted yesterday so the pictures aren't exactly the same. I've got a couple more that need to be transplanted into containers today. There's also the matter of firewood that I have to address, assuming I can even get into the gully this morning.
It's 50 degrees and sunny. Today's high should reach 63. Snow is still in the forecast for Saturday evening.
