Today I am grateful for...rain

No matter how many minutes you spend with a hose in your hand watering your plantings, it never comes close to what Mother Nature can do with a good, soaking shower. Though we have had a bit of rain this Spring, already I noticed the need for a good sprinkle. We  had one last night. This morning the Hosta, clementis and herbs had visibly jumped in size. Our 4 acres are much greener and fresher looking, the green almost velvet in rich color. Our yard needs mowing today...while yesterday is seemed fine. But I think it is going to rain all weekend, so next week will see us mowing and planting. Glad to take part in the energy of the warmer months.

"April is the cruelest month, breeding lilacs out of the dead land, mixing memory and desire, stirring dull roots with spring rain." - T.S. Eliot, "The Waste Land"
