Glorious Rain

It's way past my bedtime, but I am sitting here enjoying the sound of a spring rain and can't bring myself to go upstairs and go to sleep.

After a couple years of drought, North Georgia is experiencing a 'normal' spring. Most of the lakes, ponds and rivers (except Lanier) are an normal levels. We are getting rain and we are enjoying it.

Tonight we are having mild thunderstorms with steady rain and a gorgeous light show.

I imagine the veggies are loving it, too. Earlier this evening we discovered that some of the corn, onions, cucumbers, squash, zucchini, okra, cantaloupe and green beans have sprouted. Is that cool, or what?

One of the great things about rain is that it produces certain micro nutrients that really help plants grow. Just thought I'd share that little tidbit.

God sure knew what he was doing when he made this planet.
