We have experienced a lengthy dry spell – only 20.7mm of rain since June 25. We got some very welcome rain yesterday and overnight – I measured 13.7mm this morning This afternoon I measured another 9.2mm. It has fallen slowly, gently, soaking in to very dry soil, and filling the rain barrels.
Some folks might complain about rain falling through most of a summer weekend. We prefer to be grateful for this most welcome gift.
Howdy and welcome to everyone who has seen fit to follow me. I deeply appreciate your making time in your lives to see my photos and read my comments.

The 20+ millimeters of rain that fell over the last two days gave a welcome respite from the dry spell going back to late August. This afternoon’s sunshine was equally welcome.
I stopped to appreciate a welcome break from January’s largely overcast sky.
