“They say a flower can’t grow without a little rain. But, isn’t it also true that too much rain…Kills the flower?” “At what point does it stop being “good” for the garden? “

My rain gauge shows 8” of rain that has fallen since Tuesday, May 15. I think the rain washed my lettuce seeds down into the neighbor’s yard. And my little potted flower I just bought is waterlogged. I know this, because it looks dead. All the blooms are gone and the pot is full of water! I read all about it and am prepared to re-pot the thing. My garden needs sunshine and a lot of it. Good luck with your gardens and flowers.
