I was surprised yesterday afternoon when I checked out the rain from the front patio and saw this fisherman right in my front yard. Looks like he had no boat, no bait, no companions, not even a campstool to rest his legs. Wonder if he caught anything! It stayed rainy all day long, but certainly has made everything lush and the buds appear on the trees. It was an even bigger surprise when I looked down on the walkout patio and there were my tulips coming up big and strong! Not in time for Mother's Day this year, but still refreshing to see new life sprouting out of the earth.
