Saturday morning I took a walk in the rain.In my own garden.
Now everything is green again.
The sky has cleared and no rain is in the forecast. But I have faith again. And 2,200 gallons in the rain tanks. Rain.
It is not yet September, and the world is beginning to show its autumn colors.
Poison ivy adds a scarlet flame to the woods' edges.
The fall garden has been planted. Cauliflower, broccoli, kale, lettuce, cabbage.
Later, when the moon is waning, I will plant carrots, radishes, daikon.
Faith is the thing driving me now. Faith and a little rain.
Large cracks still wound the earth -- an inch of rain is not enough to repair the damage done by this hot drought.
But a little rain has softened the edges. And I believe again.
