Meanwhile back at the ranch…..episode 21

even after rain one week ago, the days dawn bright and clear, temperatures too warm by mid-morning to work comfortably in the direct sun;

restricted to watering only twice a week, the lawn has stayed miraculously green.

Being November with daily temperatures nearing 90 degrees, the more tender light of fall consoles us;

the hedge roses near the front porch soldier on seemingly unaffected, bathing us in beauty.

our hearts are full of gratitude even as we long for rain.
