Water Instagram - Scavenger Hunt #5
What a perfect subject for today. W.A.T.E.R.
Finally. Finally. Water. Raindrops on my windows. A nice rain. The second of the day.
We received a couple inches now throughout the several small showers we have had over the past couple of days. Not really a down pour that just runs off. Probably not the most beneficial slow rain either. Just enough to the let the trees and grasses know that there might still be hope yet.
My gardens are so happy. It is amazing how a little bit of rain can completely remove the brown crunchiness of grass. It's as if when the snow melts or the rain comes down, that it stirs up some hidden bowl of green food dye below the ground that immediately gets soaked up by the grasses and other struggling shrubs and trees.
If I'd been on a back road...I would have pulled over, stopped, and climbed out of the car to let it hit my face and arms and feet.
I can only hope that what we have, what we will get, will provide the awesome saturation of autumn colors...just a couple months away.
