what's bloomin' now

The rains have quenched the earth's thirst!
Borage seedlings!!
Fire on the mountain!

Gaillardia--so tough and pretty!

After the rains, the earth has come alive. Everything is budding up and blooming, snakes and tarantulas and deer and turtles abound. It is wet enough that we have begun burning our brush--such fun, as the burn ban has never been lifted for long enough for us to do that. The fire pit is getting lots of use now!

spectacular rainbows

The rainbows are divine here in Central TX. I love those dark skies behind the glittering gorgeousness of all that rainy color. These came after our most recent (much needed) squall of rain.
