Late Afternoon Fun

The skies once again opened up today and hit the course with a rain/hail mixture. As usual the storm did not last long, but still managed to put down more than 1/2" of precipitation.

The down side of this late day storm is the fact that the hail did some damage to the annual flower plantings. Most of what was damaged was the Geraniums which needed to be deadheaded anyway, so I guess it worked out OK. We will add a second liquid fertilizer application for the week to help the flowers grow out of this mild damage.
