'Red sky at morning -- sailor take warning.'
Though it was more of a pinkish-orange than red, Thursday's sky did, indeed, foretell rain.
I managed to do a bit in the garden -- tidying up the asparagus beds. pruning the black pussy willow, and planting some sugar snap peas and mesclun -- before the clouds rolled in and the rain drops drove me back to the house.The recent hot days have dried things out amazingly fast and the rain was most welcome -- especially as there've been brush fires in the area.
Such a pleasure to see the drops pocking the surface of the fish pool. . .
...making the periwinkle glisten...
... and setting an evergreen a-twinkle with tiny lights.
