A gentle spring rain and the season’s new growth erupts. I swear I can see the difference from morning to night. Until today’s rain, the spring here has been somewhat dry. This rain is all that’s needed to encourage shy growth to explode all at once.
Today’s rain was so gentle, it wasn’t much more than a mist, the kind of rain where I could walk all morning without a rain jacket and still not be soaked. The dogs didn’t even bother to shake after their morning walks, and the chickens didn’t look askance when they ventured out into it.
