RainOn the web

I love the rain … I can see it drench the earth and disappear where it is supposed to be. When it rains after a hot day I can practically hear the plants cheering. Today it sounds more like a satisfied humming.
I get sad when I see that, in many places, the rain is streaming straight into the gutter from the tiles, pavers and asphalt. Did you know that 39.8% of the surface of the average Dutch garden is paved?
