Welcome June Rain!

We also welcome the first day of June today!  June is one of my favourite months, coming second to September (Harvest Time!).  We enjoy the balmy mornings and warm afternoons without the intense heat that comes during the middle of July. 

Today is dark and rainy, but we do not mind at all.  I actually had to use the flash on my camera to take today's pictures...
After many months of waiting for a good rainfall, we are pleased to see that the day has finally come.  The rain is pouring down and quenching the thirst of all the newly planted seedlings in our gardens. 

Because the soil is completely parched, our main concern is that the majority of the precipitation that we receive today will end up running off as opposed to being absorbed into the soil. 
***I am praying for a thunderstorm this afternoon which will provide nitrogen (from the lightning) to "green" everything up!
