A Perfect Storm

The unofficial report from the locals is that we got between two and a half to three inches of rain overnight.  It did not fall in the terrible deluge of some time ago, but was a perfect steady rainfall that soaked in instead of running off and ruining my driveway.  It continued to rain off and on during the day yesterday, but barn chores and walkabouts were done during the breaks.  The air was so fresh and clean, as is my truck now, that Bessie Anne and I went out in the afternoon to finish weeding the center section of the lavender bed.

Ginger is so funny.  She has the run of the property and her choice of anything growing, but when I throw an armful of weeds into the chicken pen, she's so afraid she's going to miss out on something that she appears and asks to be let back in their yard.  To keep her from becoming too hoity-toity, inevitably one of the flock gives Ginger a boink on the head when she goes past on her way through the gate.

It was a good day.
