Rare Pouring Start to Seattle Summer

Poised for Growth

Soil under the Rhododendron is rarely black in June. These plants should take off in upcoming heat.

Seattle rain fame is pretty tame when summer starts. Sure, we have showers, but it’s normally just enough to spoil a tennis match.

Pouring rains unleashed on Puget Sound over the last week. Follow that with four days of forecasted heat, and I’m psyched for ideal growing and blooming conditions. The plentiful moisture-heat combination is rare here.

The break from watering was great, but I’ll make up for it with rounds of extra mowing.
