Last year on this day, I took this picture of our backyard (I can't believe our grass was still that green). It has been so long since I've enjoyed a view like this. What am amazing force nature is, and what beauty there is in all her moods and faces. However, it sure would be nice if she'd lighten up a bit and remind us all of what it's like to wake up on a rainy morning and look out on a peacefully gray autumnal landscape, for a change.
This year, I woke to my crispy grass, tip-toed out to turn on the sprinkler in the garden, and said a silent prayer for rain. Here's hoping, anyway.
