I took these pictures on a recent rainy afternoon.
There have been so many lately that they're starting to run together.
Please don't mistake that sentence for a complaint – far from it.
My hay will remain uncut until there is a break in the monsoons, but I'm ok with that.
There is enough pasture grass now to sustain us until late fall,
and I'm no longer stressing about where the next meal will come from.
We're all in disbelief over the dramatic change in scenery.
Green is the new brown.
And a puddle of fresh rainwater to sip from? Who could have imagined that a few weeks ago?
Me: Alan, when the next storm moves through, maybe you should think about taking a shower.
Alan: I think not. I like this look. Keeps the flies off.
Me: You're absolutely right, and shame on me for trying to change you.
We all love you just the way you are.
