It finally rained today.
I was in my office, hearing distant thunder. Thunder has been rare for months, and when it has come around this summer, it's just been a summertime tease.
This thunder wasnt teasing.
My secretary and I went to stand at an exterior door. Heavy drenching rain.
It rained all the way home.
I asked an old friend--97, farm owner, still drives an old truck, mows his own lawn, jogs across streets--"Have you ever seen it this bad?"
"Not in my lifetime. Not in '54, and not in the '30s. The corn never formed seed. It just dried up."
Rain. What a great way to water a garden.
I just want to sit there and listen to it, smell it ...
Should a rain viewing point be a part of my garden?
