This afternoon, the storm clouds were blowing in.
We’re getting rain but no storms. I decided to take a walk around and see if I could find anything worth sharing. Before the rain, it was so dry. We’ve had way more rain than we had last summer but it seems we get to the point where we are no longer watering effectively and we just need a good, soaking rain. We were so there and this rain is so appreciated. It makes me extremely sad to see the ground cracking like this.
The grasshoppers are alive and well . .
They’re still eating everything but there are fewer of them.
And they’re making sure we have a good crop of grasshoppers for next year!
The good news is . . while they’re “pre-occupied”, they’re easy to catch and smush!
