It didn’t take much.
Rain in SoCal in May is reasonably rare. The average is 0.31″ for the entire month.
Today’s official total at Van Nuys Airport was only 0.01″. The closest weather station to us reported 0.10″.
It wasn’t even enough to wash the layers of dirt off my car. It was only enough to make it splotchy and look worse than normal.
But the white and pink rose bush took it hard.
As it’s supposed to, I guess. The rose bush didn’t seem to mind. For all I know there are critters out there that are going to eat well over the next few days on these rose petals.
But I’ll miss them.
