Someplace in Thyme

I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

~Oh Baby Baby, Bring IT On~ A Desert Rain

Does this look like rain to you? I ask because it's common to see clouds dark like this and never see a drop of the wet stuff.
The average rain fall in the desert is around 4 inches a year, not much is it?
Well, here we go bloggers, this is what the clouds Gods brought us and it was wonderful....

Notice the white stuff on the ground? Yep, it's hail, big balls of hail.






Seems strange to be picking fresh fruit off my trees in the morning, and then see the hail on the ground that same day.




After the hail, we had glorious rain, a much needed rain and it made my day.



We were all doing the happy dance. Now that the ground is wet, the plants are happy, bring on the buds!!
