Rain Rain

Lots and lots of rain this week.  Three days worth.  No need to water the lawn.  No need to water the flowers.  No need to do anything until... was over.  Then there were puddles to jump in and fall in.  Muddy clothes to be washed.  Muddy feet to be cleaned.  And mushrooms everywhere.  We hadn't seen any mushrooms since spring...
Today the hydrangeas look parched and dry.  All of the mushrooms have shriveled, shrunk, and toppled over.  The nasturtium leaves are brown and dry around the edges.  I need to go get the hose and water the garden.
Did it really just rain?
