It rained last night - a thunderstorm that got my dog a-panting and hiding under the table. The total: 6/10ths of an inch.
With the rain we had earlier, we've in good shape again: the cisterns that collect rainwater from the house and barn roofs are full. For the moment, the grass is green and beds are radient with peonies and Siberian irises. Contentment reigns (or should I say "rains"?).
