At work we look forward to rain days, not just because the plants need it, but it also gives us a day(s) off from having to hold hoses and we are able to get other things done. We have a very limited supply of water that is safe to use on the plants, so we water everything by hand - no irrigation system for us. During a morning break I was able to take a few well-hydrated shots.
This is a simple edible Cabbage planted at the end of last fall, but we have found that it will make a fine ornamental that will last most of the summer.

I hope your garden is well hydrated, your car is limb free and your house has no trees on it.
