At least so far that’s been true. And it’s true today. It rained starting last night and kept going until right about when I stopped working. We got at least two inches, which means we now are in a series of shallow ponds and the creek is extra full.
Once the clouds parted and there was a little sun, everything perked up fast. Suddenly the pollinators were in action!
I really enjoyed how green it is this year and how many flowers there are. I’m treasuring every day this spring.
Of course, other residents came out after the rain. I saw one of our large rabbits, then found this guy enjoying the poor drainage at the horse pens. I bet the water felt good. It’s just a rat snake/chicken snake, so there was no reason to panic.
Not only the natural world came out. There are lots of new airplanes here, thanks to an air museum moving in and a flight school, too. I enjoyed these two planes going over. I don’t enjoy helicopters shooting at hogs, though (or whoever is shooting at them with a semi-automatic rifle and not letting us know).
Today was just fine. I’m glad for the peace here, because it lets me send good thoughts to friends who need them. Love to all.
