The Promise of Rain

This was our sky this afternoon. The weather has been beautiful lately.... warm and sunny... but no rain. The soil in the garden is dusty. We really need rain.
I was so excited to see these clouds and to hope that they'd bring rain.

Even though we live in a neighborhood, I feel very lucky that this is the view from our back patio. (click on the pic to enlarge it) Our weather fronts usually come from the west and I love watching them roll in from our backyard.

And finally a picture of the finished digging area.

As I'm uploading these pictures it's starting to rain! Yay!
