It’s been the rainiest October in a long, long time here in Phoenix.
And, really, all I can say is “Yay!”
I love the rain. We have a metal awning that protects our pool equipment from the blazing sun and to hear the patter of rain on that is wonderful, especially when I can go back to sleep or read all day.
But there is another side effect to rain, especially here in the desert.
It started as an odd haze over the gravel in my front yard. Then poof, as if by magic, the rock was obscured by a layer of fuzzy green, two leaf shoots. Yes, two. You see we have a mesquite tree that is trying to spawn as many offspring as stars in the universe.
Or, at least, that what it seems like since I’ll be pulling all those weeds. One by one by one. And I’ll do it in the manner of Doug the dog from Up! with a little here and here then here and over here. So there’ll be patches of bald rock but no one section will be completely clear until… March, maybe.
As I said there’s a lot of them:D
Until next time.
