I know that the USA is experiencing dramatic weather right now.
We, in California, had ours Tues/Wed/Thurs of last week. Our town of San Miguel received 13″ of rain in 48 hours! It was incredible – for us. And, the winds were epic. Since we live on a hill, the winds were even more epic than most. Very dramatic. Mother Nature was in a mood.
I also think that I told you that rain doesn’t do will with our soil. You can see it in the photos. That is also why I only put one or two horses per paddock in wet weather. The ground cannot take more horses.
Anyway, I’m sure you have your troubles wherever you live…
But today… a week after the first day of the epic rains, Mother Nature was happy again. Mood change. I even saw grass coming up! Grass is sprouting where the horses don’t have access (smooth ground) and where the sun shines.
And roses… I saw a rose bloom today! I cut all the bushes back last month, and today, a little Charlie Brown rose bush pushed out leaves and a bloom!
Amazing. This all just cements my mantra that every day is a do-over. If something is awful, go to sleep and see what the new day brings. Eventually, no matter how tragic, the grass will grow and a rose will bloom (I know this to be true).
