We in the valley have been sorely shortchanged on the rain end of things. But over the last couple of days we have had a lovely, cool, wet blessing
From early Friday morning ~ let's say 5 AM ~ until Friday evening 12 hours later, we had steady, cool, sweet showers. Not strong, not heavy. Just a gentle rain, soaking the dry and parched earth, washing leaves and plants clean. Today was cool and moist, although no rain. Tonight there is predicted to be another 12 hours of gentle rain through tomorrow afternoon. After that, SUMMER and HOT. But we usually get more rain mid-May. Everything in the garden is clean, damp, happy. In town, trees are refreshed and ready for bloom. It's a good time here in the valley.
