Hark At The Rain


The most amazing thing happened in our parched Northern California valley: it’s called “rain.”


A gentle soaking rain with moments of sunshine peaking through the clouds…


which turned the garden electric.


“And now, hark at the rain,
Windless and light,
Half a kiss, half a tear,
Saying good-night.” ~ Edward Thomas, “Sowing”

Goodnight from wonderful, rain-drenched California.


  1. I was happy to see the raindrops on your gorgeous flowers. I continue to read that there’s more to come this winter, and I keep my fingers crossed that when they come they’ll be as gentle as your recent rain shower!

    • Some more expected Sunday. The best news is that it has already snowed in the Sierra – our source of water in the Valley. We need much, much, more. So keep those fingers crossed…and thank you!
