Rain, rain, go away...

This morning it stopped raining long enough for the fog to roll back in.

Luckily, even with yesterday and today’s rain (and a bit more forecast for the weekend and into next week), the vines really haven’t started flowering yet. Sure there’s undeveloped florettes (inflorescences) that have appeared, but they’re not open yet (flowering is their most vulnerable time), and the rain is not predicted to be heavy enough to do any other damage.

It’d be nice to have the next few weeks dry and warm to kick the vines into gear…
