We had a wonderful rain last night that was badly needed. It was the long slow sort of rain that really soaked into the ground, mostly overnight, and covering much of southern Ontario. Both farmers and gardeners will be breathing a sigh of relief as it's been very dry. All the crops will have been planted by now, so with the hot weather coming all those plants will get a really good burst of growth. Thanks to Mrs. F.G. for the first four of these images.
