Rain Garden for a Rainy Day

House sitting in Seattle has given me the opportunity to reconnect with old friends. I spent the afternoon in Gig Harbor, WA, which is near Tacoma, visiting my old friend Lee. We have known each other for 27 years, since we both work for the same government agency in San Francisco. As fate would have it, we both eventually ended up in the Puget Sound area. Lee has turned her yard into a beautiful rain garden. And as it rained all day, it was a perfect day to stroll through the garden.

The pond fills with water from the drain spouts.
