It is interesting experiment.  We had unusual rainy days this summer.  It was quite heavy rain yesterday.
 It never happened so far. Usually no rain over 6 months after April. I live in Southern California almost 20 years.  Belladonna flowers are sign of ending sumer, bloom 
at the end of Summer time.
