the picture below it is looking toward the east. the glass structure is our new arboretum. beyond it is a hill, that in a typical year would be a study in dry to the extreme.
it has been a wetter than usual summer for us. in the spring systems came up from mexico, training rainfall along the way.
with august coming on and with no rain locally in quite a bit, the green, green hills of home stand a better than even chance of reverting back to the same old,same old.
such is life on the semi-arid plains. the best we can do is enjoy the view while it lasts, as long as it lasts.
on the other hand, if the rains want to continue, they'll get no argument from this quarter. aio
