Rains have arrived!

Two days of slow and gentle but abundant rainfall have washed the ashes from every thing. This is the first day of CLEAN. Red-shouldered hawks announced their presence early this morning. The sun was streaming through the oaks illuminating the new growth of moss. Frogs were croaking their gratitude here at Mission Creek. With warmer than normal weather, new plant growth will start early this growing season. Get kids outdoors to collect acorns. Leave a pile of acorns and see what happens to the cache over the next few days.
