At the xeriscape show last  week, I picked up a nifty new rain gauge, courtesy of the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority, with this helpful advice:

Skip one watering when you receive at least a quarter of an inch of rain.

The last time that happened at my house? September.

    Around here, they collect dust and sand.
