We’re not out of the woods yet…
But it’s a good start. The meadow wishes the drought a hopeful farewell. Please send more.
I am a nascent gardener, rescuer, and photographer, chronicling the journey of the dogs at Homeward Bound Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary near Sacramento, CA - and the Memorial Garden we have devoted to them.

Great to hear about the rainfall and snow – El Nino has helped many a dry area.
Wonderful news on the water front, and stunning photos, as always.
we have snow to share
We’ll take it!
I’m loving the rain and hope it continues. Those mushroom shots are incredible.
It’s been great to see the water flowing on our walks along the creek! Keep it coming Mother Nature!
Wonderful to see you getting some much needed rain, beautiful photos. it was supposed to be a hot and dry summer here however we’ve had good rain so some of the drought affected areas here are springing back to life.
So wonderful to see the trees, especially, get a long good drink – isn’t it? I hope for more for both of us!
It is, I love seeing them come back to life and to see the wildlife returning. Fingers crossed that there is more to come 🙂
