The normal rainfall for our part of the world is just over 11 inches for the entire year, which runs November to October. This year we have already gotten almost 13 inches of precipitation, not bad for a season of drought.
All vegetation has burst forth with great vigor, making the backyard look pretty overgrown, but I like it that way. I sat out under the trees this weekend enjoying 80 degree weather and the smell of citrus blossoms.
If you look carefully, across the street, in the parking strip, there is an easy chair. It was left behind by the people who just moved out of the house. They left a wide assortment of furniture on the side of the road for anyone to take. All that’s left is this chair. Even the AmVets refused it due to its torn upholstery. I wonder how long I will have to look at it, out my living room window.
