Observations (in the raw)
Last night it rained! It was not just a drop or two, but a real downpour. Things are still wet this morning and it smells divine. It smells like it used to smell camping in the Colorado high country. All of Nature seems happy this morning. During the rain last night we were sitting on the back porch when down by my feet appeared a salamander. Once again, a creature I would not expect to see in a desert. More and more this place and its creatures reminds me of growing up in rural Kentucky. Now if we only had "lightning bugs".
Summer in all its glory. And here we are one day away from Independence Day. How very wonderful!
