A little wet, a little gold

28 04 2021

We got a little rain yesterday and last night. πŸ™‚

It’s hard to say how much. After it rained in one location, I went for a drive, and within 100 yards, the road was bone dry. … How does that HAPPEN?!

Just a couple of hours later, I had to hustle out of the basin, white-knuckling the steering wheel, as the spatter of damp dirt against the underside of the Jeep competed with the squeak of the windshield wipers.

As I neared one band, we had a little of this happening:

Before I got out to the horses, it was pretty well faded, but a little red-gold made up for the lack of a pot. πŸ˜‰ (Interestingly, the rainbow is highlighting the edge of Knife Edge, seen from the southish. The far heavily-treed ridge is where I was the other day.)

Always glowing, our little Tesora girl (and still shedding, as it turns out!). πŸ™‚

oh – how the sun dances across the landscape, in both light and within Tesora and don’t the sun dance look so much prettier when there is moisture included, too! πŸ˜€

That ol’ sun … it teases and burns … and it makes for glorious images of the wild. πŸ™‚

LOL! So long, long ago, I was saddened to read that Jeremy Rifkin had been ridiculed and blackballed from some ‘academic circles’ because he had the temerity to say outloud, “All economics depend upon photosynthesis” – which to me, requires the sun – in all it’s gifting and harsh glory – πŸ˜€

So true! In our dry country, I just wish we had a few more rain-swollen clouds just a bit more often. πŸ˜‰

Such a gorgeous rain-day, TJ, complete with rainbow and light show! I’m glad for you and the ponies – every drop matters. And Tesora – always splendidly beautiful; is that a bit of mud I see on her? It’s a good look! 😊
