Energy-Bringing Rain

Barnglow through rainy predawn

Saturday, April 20, 2019

The overnight rain is invigorating, even if it’s just another downpour during weeks of more rain in this area than we’ve seen for years. In these early hours and to the bewilderment of my sleepy dogs, I tiptoed outside with a camera to capture some dripping, tapping loveliness.

Not long ago, our local stores began bringing in flowers. It’s always exciting and I purchased a few, even knowing that for awhile I’d be too busy to plant them. Fortunately, they’re enjoying this damp balmy weather. One on my small deck needs re-potting, the other should be in the ground and attached to a trellis, but now, in this early morning they’re happy, soaking in atmosphere.

So am I, for the whole outside, though dim, feels comfortable and beckoning. From my deck, the shadowy trees are alive with sleepy, watchful birds. Upon seeing me, they began calling, warning of disturbance in this normally quiet, very early morning.

This week’s days were wonderful–warm and sunny with voluminous clouds–and the evenings relatively warm. Sleeping hasn’t required a heated blanket. Already now, the overnight rain has diminished and today is beginning as another lovely.

Yes indeed, it’s a Central Oregon springtime.

Dear Friends, have a marvelous day. Diana

  1. Darcy and I rode out at Tumalo Canal yesterday afternoon and enjoyed watching some really big thunder heads advance toward Bend. Not dusty out there yet. Later went to visit Kali Kiger on White Rock Loop. Darcy is going to take jumping lessons with Kali! Great to see them connect so well. Darcy is enjoying riding both of our horses and I am loving her company! Win win. 😃
