Oh,we’ve had the occasional shower here and there.But no real amount of measureable rainfall.And after what seems like weeks of blistering heat(and heat indexes to match),the garden was dying of thirst.And it was starting to show.
But last night,out of the clear blue sky,a strange sound was heard.
Me:”Is that thunder?”
YardBoy:”It’s been thundering for awhile.You haven’t heard it?”
Me:”No-I was inside.In the A/C.Where it’s cool.Is it going to rain?”
YardBoy:”It’ll probably just shower and then move on.If at all.”
The elves were playing 10 pins in the mountains(her term for thunder) for quite awhile.
The lights were flickering on and off,but then it settled down to an all night steady rain.
First thing,this morning,I was out in the garden.Jammies on,barefoot,camera in hand( a sight to behold,I assure you).
Oh how the garden was rejoicing in last night’s bath.
It always amazes me,how we can hand water and the plants seem to do ok,but let the Heavens open up and the garden just seems to dance with pure joy.
Alive and refreshed….
Momma always knows best……(yep,another phrase I heard over and over,growing up)
