Thankful for moisture!

It's been raining and raining!

The meadows are getting more green, and the elk are overjoyed. They barely look up from the grass when people pass.

We found a frog (Boreal Chorus Frog) in one of our garden beds.

It must be mighty wet outside for him to have left the safety of a nearby pond.

The world is looking healthier everyday.
I'm glad that our elk can finally fatten up before they migrate to higher elevation for the summer.

And I am so thankful that the fire danger is less extreme, at least for now.


  1. Glad you finally received some rain.
    It does make everything green.

  2. The rain might hamper your outside activity but it is good for the plants and animals around you. We hope it keeps you safe from the fire danger.

  6. That first photo is amazing!!! As much rain as we had in March, it is very dry here too. We really could use a good drenching, but no more mud please:)

  7. I'm so happy you finally got that much needed moisture! Ironically, things are getting dry here now. Since I've started planting my gardens, I'm really hoping for more rain soon!

  8. Spring rain is a good thing. A few good thunderstorms will really green stuff up.
