The gardens after the today’s rain are a satisfying place to be.
They are filled to the brim with beauty.
Every plant has bathe in the moisture and are the better for it. We gardeners water but rain has a special magic.
The tiny sunflowers on the west side have poked their little plump leaves up through the soil. They germinated in only six days and now the rows of half-inch tall plants hold the promise of cheerful, yellow blooms on tall stalks later in the season.
Walking about, the zucchinis are flourishing and the Swiss chard, kale and lettuce are ready to be harvested. Basil looks like it enjoyed the rain and the frilly tops of tiny carrot seedlings carpet certain beds.
Many plants are showing their fruits and colorful combinations. More promises of good things to come.
Tomorrow, I will be working in the garden.
I hope to see you there, Natalie
