The past week has been gloriously wet! Here in the high desert we love our spring showers! On a large scale the water fills up the reservoirs in the mountains, to be used later, during the hot dry summer. On a smaller scale, our rain barrels are running over, the swales, hugelkulturs and deep mulched beds are absorbing and storing water, small little reservoirs in their own right. And of course, the ducks just love the rain, while the chickens hide under the coop, trying to keep away from the damp, the duck revel in it, playing in the raindrops and puddles. I enjoy watching my happy little birds.
