Big deal for us...all was so dry, for so long..east coast folks likely don't know the feeling...it's a very uneasy one, waiting for nourishment which is not coming, knowing at least that the big trees are okay for now, not even thinking about the groundwater (fracking etc.) but for the moment, after a near-week of gentle rain, the grass is coming back, the succulents are, well, succulent, and things look happy.
I'm sure it worries the animals too, more than us. So for now...respite. Monroe is still living in the tree for the most part, spent a week or two in the house, on the kitchen counter, grabbing huge hunks of chicken before they went into the grinder, devouring them...and being available for hugs at all times. Now gone again...he's attracting followers: can you spot three cats in this photo?
