Woo, hoo! A bit of rain

Intermittent winter rains and an early lush spring masked how dry it has become. 

Lawnmowers are uncovering crispy bits and bare soil, as the over-seeded winter rye has died back with the early spring heat.

I watered my vegetable beds this afternoon (the rest of the landscape is on its own, although I may water the woodland wildflower area tomorrow, depending on how much rain falls tonight). 

The arrow marks where I observe wildlife and garden!  I hope the 'some improvement' comes to pass.
It's falling steadily now, with thunder, as a thunderstorm passes over, but it's easing off a bit.  I wished it would hang around and produce a major downpour!

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