When I came home from the pool today
all was calm,
without the usual dripping from the sky.
It seemed odd, but felt SO wonderful to walk about without being pelted!!
Our record-breaking rainfall has changed our landscape..
We now have new ponds
and a hydroponic lawn.
The banks of the Gravel Pond have disappeared
and the edges expanded.
And we have water at the bottom of the stairs and on the trail to the river.
And the river?
It has become as deep and fast as it was with the spring run-off!
But hidden along the rain and wind-beaten trail to the house
were stout Mother Nature creatures..
and delicate beauties..
to be discovered..
