My rain barrels are overflowing, the water lily leaves breaking the surface, the Koi ravenous. I would like to say enough of the rain, but the mallards beneath the bird feeder are putting on quite a show. Look at these feathers, why dontcha. And the sleeping is amazing!
The forecast for Friday and Saturday calls for sun. Cross your fingers. Not to be overly optimistic, but come Satuday evening Tom will be the exhausted recipient of a Bachelor of Arts in environmental science and comparative religion (and a minor in music, which is where he started and where he'll continue to go.) His equally exhausted gal Mary will be receiving a Bachelor of Arts in environmental science and recreation. National Parks, say hello to Mary.
Now the fun begins. For everyone, I imagine. Up to the surface, out into the world, ravenous, ready for the show.
