I sit inside today watching lightning strikes, pea size hail and heavy rain. The darkening sky mimics night as a series of storms blow through for a forecast of five hours.
When my husband and I took a quick hike yesterday the sky was a brilliant blue with a spectacular winter sun warming the Rocks and Forest floor. Beautiful patches of Bluets, Chickweed and Dog Violets dotted the park trail and road edges. A familiar scurrying sound was ever present as we interrupt lizard sunbathing on the trail edges. A big male Prairie Lizard flashes his bright blue belly scales from on top of a cluster of Rocks. It had not rained for 5 days but the soil was saturated and seeping on several trails. It appears as if the drought has lifted in time to create a spectacular spring for 2013.
Love to ALL!
