Soggy soil

After several days of wonderful spring-like weather, we're back to soggy soil and runoff. I'm quite sure that the groundwater supply is WELL recharged by now. Squishing across the lawn, getting muddy shoes in the trampled areas, and hearing a first 'spring' thunderstorm this afternoon are good signs, I suppose, for an amply wet spring.

I haven't even checked the long-term forecasts from the climate folks, as I would worriedly do during our recent drought years. The lakes are full pool, meaning our city water supply is ample, and the soil and subsoil is totally saturated.

It's time for more sun and warmth, and spring growth, even if it means concentrated pollen release from wind-pollinated trees and shrubs (achoo!)

I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
