We had a much-needed day of rain on Tuesday. It started mid-morning and lasted into the evening. Daytime temperatures dropped into the 80's, which was a welcome change.
The rain was gentle enough to soak into the soil. If we get more rainy days like this, we may be able to look forward to a nice spring wildflower bloom. But it would take a LOT more days like this to end our multi-year drought.
"The rain is falling all around, it falls on field and tree,
It rains on the umbrellas here, and on the ships at sea."
~Robert Louis Stevenson, A Child's Garden of Verses
