has finally come! My cup runneth over and so does the 500
gallon water tank in my shadehouse.
Nature rejoices as a lovesick cicada serenading loudly in the
hope of yet attracting a mate so late in the season, drags me
out of slumber at three o'clock in the morning. Did you know
that they need rain for their chambers to really resonate?
A sodden bee struggles among the wet pollen ....
'Heritage' delighting in the warm summer rain so unusual
this late in the season..
Nature's jewels lighting up the garden. We had one and a half
inches of rain in less than 24 hours, more rain than we have had
in the last six months in total.
'Just Joey' dripping with pleasure. The pleasure the plants and
the very earth feel at this wonder from heaven is palpable.
All of Nature rejoices!
Apologies for the quality of the first shot, it was raining cats, dogs,
and small elephants and I was more worried about my camera
than a perfect picture.
All photos enlarge as always.
