Let the rain reign!

I awoke early this morn to the sound of gently rumbling thunder and a soothing shower. It has kept up pretty much all day now. Our new grass must be smiling.

The hostas I planted a couple of weekends ago are looking quite sturdy. Our sunflowers are over a yard high and seemingly growing by the hour! Even though I did not plant our tomatoes until WAY late, they seem to be growing a ton and there are a couple of teeny tiny tomatoes on one of the plants already.

Some of the branches on our maple tree that grows in the 'danger-grass', closest to our street had some limbs that have grown so much, they were hanging low over the sidewalk and may have been annoying the walkers and runners that pass by our home each day. It was satisfying yesterday to drag out the step ladder and a pruning saw and work up a bit of a sweat getting those sagging branches down and then cutting it all down to fit in our 'yard waste' trash can.

What a wonderful season of growing and changing and trimming.

Those verses in Daniel made me think of a verse I was studying earlier this week...Mark 4:22 - For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light.
