The air is blue with moisture – a big change from the yellows,
oranges and browns we’ve been having. Three and a quarter inches of
rain! No watering this week! I still find cheerful drops winking
back at me from the grass.

I’ll have to mow again soon, but I don’t mind, because I haven’t
had to do it since mid-July, and I need to look over the yard anyway.
