Reprieve 1st of March ’19

autumn comes pp

At 4am it started to rain.

I don’t recall the last time I heard rain. Decent rain. It was over two months ago. I love the summer, but the garden is drying out down to the depths of itself.

The garden got a further watering with grey water to make sure it got a decent soaking through. The rain would only penetrate so far.

By mid morning any trace of rain clouds or showers was gone. The day went on with a growing intensity and brightness. After a few errands around town I ran all the electrical appliances that I needed to for the day while we harvested our solar power.

By midday the heat of the sun was rather intense. The rain freshened things up, but it will take a lot more before it soaks deep into the soil.
