Farmers often talk about getting a timely rain, that much needed moisture that comes at just the right time for their thirsty crops.
My little patch of ground has recently received some timely rain. The sweet woodruff ringing the catalpa tree in the front yard dries out pretty quickly. It’s clearly grateful.
With temperatures warming–but still quite variable–plants just come alive. The ostrich fern have grown 4 or 5 inches. So graceful and pretty. And the rain barrels are replenished and filled to the brim.
And the peonies are filled with buds. I can’t wait for them to bloom. This is the third year I’ve had them in the garden and they have never looked so good.
And the azaleas just burst forth in all their awesome fuchsia glory. Mother Nature is amazing at this time of year.
