Though they still laid their two dozen eggs right on queue.
Then in the evening right at dinner time (rosemary potato pancakes) it rained, then poured, the thunder boomed and the lightening crackled, the wind built into a squall, then the storm drew in a huge breath and down the rain came in sheets.
The chickens stood at their windows, the piglets twirled in circles laughing and leaping as they rain inside, and the cows lumbered out into the center of the field, the calf dancing behind them and stood with their tails to the wind, drenched, cool at last.
I dared not look at my garden, the rain is so welcome but the big wind behind a heavy downpour (check the instagram below) not so much, not for the little seedlings. But this rain came just in time for the emerging alfalfa we top sowed into the hay field last month. I will walk out and look again later this morning.
This morning smells divine with that particular brand of impossible to bottle post rain freshness. Soon it will be post rain humidity but for a little while it will be fresh and clean.
I hope you have a lovely day.
