RAIN rain RAIN ... and more rain. Then Clearing!

It has rained so much here lately. Television news has reported on little else besides landslides and flood warnings. As a result, I have not done much gardening besides throw coffee grounds out on any patches of exposed soil (to hopefully to keep nutrients from running down into the storm drains and to help nourish the Earth).

This morning, we had a clear patch of sky with just overcast (thank the Cosmos, no more rain) and the weather is pleasurably warm for this time of year. So I went out and pulled grass out from between the bricks where I've made a footpath. That's also where I have attempted to encourage moss and other steppable plants to grow (see photos).
