Finally some rain

We've had a very long dry (and hot) spell in the mountains, requiring daily watering of the raised beds (of vegetables), and even watering of the deep-rooted meadow plants in front. 

(I'm not looking forward to what my Piedmont beds are like, later in the week).

So it was a welcome late afternoon thunderstorm, bringing a downpour visible both through the front door...

  1. The weatherman keeps promising rain, but he is not dependable. I don't think a five minute sunshower counts as rain! I can almost feel your cooling rain.

  2. It sure was dry down in the Piedmont, but at least we're having thunderstorms in the mountains.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
