Valiant

You can see how dry it’s been.  The drought may be over, but this one is blooming because of stored water from the January rains.  We had a bit of mist the other day, but have had no rain of consequence for many weeks.

It is indeed a treat to see *green* rolling hills and canyons instead of brown ones.  I hope we are treated to more rain again next winter.  Doubtful there will be any over the summer, although we experienced a brief July thunderstorm the summer we were deciding to move here, almost seven years ago.  The locals apologized profusely, as if they had let us down.  Compared to a Kansas storm, it was nothing, and we laughed!
