...seems new again. It's raining! It's funny how something that seemed to be our miserable lot in life from January to June now seems so novel and surprising. Pleasant. Needed.
In this photo I took yesterday around 7:30 p.m., you can see how brown the (so-called) grass is out in the back yard. It reminds me of the California climate, where winter was green and summer was brown. Our Saint-Aignan yard and garden will be happy to get this morning's rain.
Last evening it was obvious that the weather was beginning to change. They was a westerly breeze. A rain front was moving in off the Atlantic Ocean and we're now under it. Don't worry, the weather people say, tomorrow it will be sunny again, and the weekend promises to be hot.
One of the nicest things about living in this house near Saint-Aignan is our view of the morning and evening skies. We see both sunrise and sunset every day.
