Summer Rain

June 24th, 2007

We got rain!  Well, at least some rain… a little rain.  But I’m not complaining, and any rain we get is welcome.  The week ahead looks dry, so it was nice to cool off for a day with the clouds.  This morning I awoke early to a misty fog surrounding the landscape after moist drizzle yesterday.  I spent some time in the garden trying to weed the rows of vegetables.  The grass and weeds grows so fast it’s hard to keep up with.  But if we take a little time each day, the garden will grow. 

This spiderweb was high up in a tree, and the morning dew helped it stand out for the picture.

The clouds billowed up in the sky yesterday, with rumbles of thunder in the distance.  Then the rain came, heavy for a brief time, and then periods of drizzle.  It wasn’t much really, but it sure was nice!

I love seeing rain on the pond… the water level has dropped a few feet already, but with luck we’ll get more rain through the summer to help it stay full.
