Jack’s Walk

Yesterday was a perfect spring day with sunshine and warmth and all things good. Today is also a perfect spring day, but of the drizzly, rainy kind that feeds all the growing things. I’m not sure the little growing things really need the rain because the ground is still pretty wet from the last rain we had plus the winter melt, but the trees are doing thirsty work making leaves so they’ll use up any extra left over water. I know that there are parts of the world who are struggling with a too dry spring season and I wish I could share. Here it’s been snow and rain and rain and rain for many weeks. It should settle down eventually and I can only hope the trees get enough wet now to protect them from the blistering heat to come. The weather has changed so drastically over the course of my lifetime that I just don’t know what to expect anymore. I do love the trees, though, and I hate to see them suffer so let it rain on my beauties while they grow their summer suits. I can wait  for the sunshine.

    Well it did rain, thunder and lightening. The soil is wet to a depth of about half an inch. Good enough for the baby alliums, not nearly enough for the potatoes.

    We have rain forecast for tomorrow (Friday). I hope it comes true like yours did, Jazzlet! I hope you get some more for the potatoes.
