the gift of rain
After three long years of drought, it rains in the desert. Drought changes the way we do things. I had given up on vegetable gardening last year because of the drought. My current backyard project is maintaining the grass for the dogs, so they have someplace cool and somewhat green to hang out. Besides, one of the dogs, who will remain unnamed, liked to dig holes in the garden.
Has the drought come to an end? Probably not. But today, we celebrate the rain. The back yard sings. The rain falls. I wander out to photograph this strange phenomenon in the desert.
