An Irresistible Exuberant Delight—-Tuesday, July 19, 2016


We’ve been living with heat for several, several days now.


Miserable heat, the kind that hangs in the air  and never really seems to cool down. (Although, I will take this heat over winter any day!)

Yard-8The weather people said we might have rain yesterday…so we waited.

Then last evening I could see rain playing around us on the Uncompahgre Plateau.

Yard-9Rain chutes filled the sky looking toward Montrose and over toward the Peach Valley area; still the bumblebees and the hummingbirds never exhibited anxious hovering in the flowers like they do before a storm makes it’s way to us.


We set the last set of water in the glow of the Full Thunder Moon; the air more restless than early in the evening.


Then during the night the rains came!  We woke to beautiful fresh air, the ghost of the storm hanging damply on each blade and leaf.

Today is alluring, with clouds moving in again, and the promise of POSSIBLY more rain.  My garden, the farm, and myself are all doing the happy dance!

Your friend on a Western Colorado Farm,

  1. We have had record temperatures throughout the country for the past two days – this evening it is unbearably hot and humid – quite unpleasant in face. There are set to be storms overnight in some places and then tomorow a little cooler. The farmer is busy getting all his hay in.

  2. Every turn of the weather is welcome. Rain after long heat, sun after long rain. The joy is in the change, the newness. I’d welcome some sunshine right now, to dry things out and let me get rid of the mildewy smell in the corners of the house. Too much rain in the Dry season… everything is topsy turvy
