Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby. Langston Hughes
We got home late last night from our long weekend away...it was relaxing and quiet with lots of good meals and family time. I was a little worried about my garden because I had just planted seeds but it was cooler in Colorado Springs than Glenwood Springs and now this morning gorgeous rain.

Rain is so infrequent here that it feels like a gift to my plants and my spirit. We had very little snowfall this winter so I'm sure there will be water rationing this summer. I'm working on a new garden this summer, near the garage where it feels a little neglected...it will be a Xeriscape garden. I'll post some pictures as it gets planted and fills in. The beginning quote this morning by Langston Hughes is actually part of a poem, April Rain Song.
April Rain Song
Let the rain kiss you
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops
Let the rain sing you a lullaby
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk
The rain makes running pools in the gutter
The rain plays a little sleep song on our roof at night
And I love the rain.
