Rain, covering us like the grace of God.
I am so grateful for the greening of Summer. For a couple of years, we had drought conditions. This year the beauty of the constant drenching is a beautiful thing to me. Now, we are praying that the timing of the rain would be convenient for us. I have one grapevine coming up and four strawberry plants in the garden. They are delighted at the plentiful waters and watering.
My bird feeder, though empty, because of not buying the seeds for my dear friends in the neighborhood, sprouted 5 sunflowers from the birds dropping those seeds into the soil, instead of eating them. This morning, Mrs. Bluejay had a good-morning song for me as soon as I opened the door to look out at the beautiful morning sky. The clouds hadn't quite decided what they would do, yet. The sun was bright and promising of a sunshiny day. Now, it seems that Mrs. Bluejay, was warning me, get outside, now, she warned, there are some clouds forming outside of your view. I saw them on my way over here and I here there will be rain today. Really, I queried? She darted off to discuss the matters with my neighbor, through her opened window. I wasn't offended, because I have learned that is the bluejay way. They give a quick newscast and hardly have time to discuss any questions. They leave socializing to the sparrows.Right now, though it isn't raining, the sun is covered by the gathering clouds and seem to be threatening to keep the day overcast, for a while. We will see.
Summer, in NC is full of wild and life and challenging weather patterns. I enjoy it. So many stories are on my tongue and on my computer, having gotten to know my animal friends in the neighborhood. Kissed my honey good bye and a good day and then prepared for the young people to come downstairs for the day.fictional blog link, stories. False Alarm, the sun came back out! It looks like a lovely day, now.9:39am.
