And the Rains Came Tumbling Down

It rains so rarely here in Bakersfield that I thoroughly enjoyed today's downpour. After the rain, the sun came out and everything was so clean and bright. It was warm (enough) for the rain to steam off of the fence. Very pretty!

I love the look of this sap oozing from my nectarine tree (which I get to have fruit from this coming year!) (I hope).

When I was little, I wished fairies were real. This looks like a place they would have played.

That's a bit of the pretty in my otherwise plain old backyard.


  1. Fairies playing in the woods always reminds me of Jim Christensen.


Whatcha thinkin'?
