It wasn’t a lot … but it was something … and in our current state of drought, we are grateful for anything.
Just after all the dogs were walked,
dark skies turned to a quick downpour –
with the promise of more on Tuesday. Every drop and every cool day extends our hope for the garden (which looks lush and full in spring) to survive another California summer.

Sixty five roses fed on Saturday before the rain … perfect timing.
And, five of our longer-term residents found their way home this week, including two pairs that we promised to keep together: Lucky … who I wrote about in January –
Dexter and Pogo …
And handsome Finnegan and Seamus.
Promise made. Promise kept.
“All that we behold is full of blessings.” ~ William Wordsworth
Do you suppose Saint Francis can request water on behalf of the dogs’ well-being as well as the garden?

This is my favorite blog. I love the combination of flowers and dogs and love to see the happy puppies going to their forever home.
Thank you, Venita!
Goosebumps. So happy for those promises kept. There isn’t a time when I’m listening about the water need in your area that I don’t think about you, the gardens and the important residents. I pray that Mother Nature sends you water to help replenish. 🙂
I will gladly accept that prayer! Thank you, Judy.
Fingers and paws crossed for more rain!
Beautiful! Just Beautiful! Your photos tell such wonderful stories. You should publish a book of your photos telling the story of Homeward Bound and the garden. I can see it up front at Barnes & Noble.
Such a beautiful garden and I’m so happy that you got some rain. The dogs look so happy, there is nothing not to love about this post 🙂
