A soft rain overnight has refreshed our parched earth


Lady's Mantle


Wild Mustard

Goldenrod Spider, 
still golden from her time on the wild mustard, I believe.

She is so colorful against green leaves and blue bugle.

Apple Blooms, drenched in rain, still cling to the tree.

But, as June approaches, 
the wild apple trees celebrate
with pink confetti.

Where ever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you fresh air and something to celebrate.

Diane, Yes, we are thrilled! Most of the other rains in our region have gone south of our farm!

Steve, Well, you sound busy! How the storms were light on damage. Thank you, that spider is my favorite!

Okay, I'll admit to an irrational fear of spiders. The Goldenrod Spider in your post is one I've never seen before. She's beautiful. But I wouldn't want her ON me!

I've never seen a spider like that!
I'm glad the rains came!
