A Very Nice Rain

We had a nice rain yesterday, a steady pace throughout the day, and the plants and vegetables appear to be thankful.

This morning offered a bit of sunshine, a rainbow over the valley, a few photo ops, and now showers again. There is nothing quite like the greens of spring and the exhilarating freshness of color, and my spirit is uplifted with this glow in the garden.

Interesting that when we left for our trip to Central Oregon last Thursday, and that upon our return only four days later (yesterday), many of the trees that were showing small signs of life have now spread forth their buds into newly formed leaves. Amazing!
