After the rain...

I love to go outside after a hard rain and see the steam rolling off the earth...the crickets begin chirping again and the birds are softly singing...I love to come into the garden and see
several lovely ripe tomatoes waiting for me... I love to gather eggs and hear the chickens gently clucking, and the baby chicks scurrying around...I love to walk back to the house and see the clouds trimmed in glowing pink...the fireflies flutter in the darkening shadows of the trees...ahh, a good end to a steaming hot summer day...looks like tomato soup and an egg dish are on the menu for tomorrow...

  1. It was sprinkling here this morning and I smelled that delicious smell of just wet asphault. Made me homesick...I haven't smelled that in so long...This post makes me feel like I got to be home. Thank you. Love, Ness
