The Deluge

Sad day today friends. Last night, a torrential rain swept through my little garden at the front of the house and took out the seedlings I started at Christmas. Oh the sorrow!

But, I rescued my bedraggled pommegranite seedlings and repotted them in a new home. I have been tending and babying these seeds since they went into the ground. They are some of the seeds from our trip to Byblos, Lebanon in the fall. This is the second attempt at getting them to grow . I was beginning to despair until I say the little green popping from the earth last week. It was a razors edge amount– but like I said I have been TENDING these babies. Over the week they came out, there were three. Now, two remain. Needless to say, I think they will survive. Oh, how I do hope so.
