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!)
The 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.
Rain 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!
