Rain At Last

This morning after I walked with Moon and Copper, I grabbed my camera.  I wanted to take a few pictures so I could show you what it's like here in the Hollow on a cool morning after heavy rains.  We actually hadn't had any significant precipitation all summer.  In fact, I believe I read that the last one inch of precipitation we got was back in the spring.  It was as snow.





Needless to say, it's been very dry.  Last Friday, I took this picture of my creek that runs under the driveway.  As you can see, my creek was down to just a mere trickle!

 



Then it began to rain this past Saturday.  It continued to rain pretty much right through Monday afternoon.  Take a look for your self and the power of Mother Nature.  Everything just re-emerged, green, fresh and lush!













 As you can see, there was also this wonderful heavy fog hovering all around us!  Of course, I will admit that when I had to drive up and over the mountain in this kind of weather, it was a little scary to say the least.















These shots, along the fence where I've planted Bittersweet, are just a sampling of what I see when I look around on a morning like this!   The Bittersweet is completely loaded with berries!  I'm going to have some beautiful arrangements this year!!

We needed that rain! It sure was kind of dreary though.
You need to come get this starter! It's acting all crazy and I'm afraid it's gonna blow ;-)
