I have another confession to make. I love weather.
I love reading about it and looking at forecasts.
We are having huge storm coming.
I know it will be one of the last so I will enjoy it.
The ground will be soft again so it will be easier to keep
I thought I would show you a pile of wet weeds that I didn't
get picked up and maybe won't until after the storm. It might
not be until next weekend.
You can't really tell how high it is but it is up to my knees.
That is how what I need to chop looks. The weeds
in some places are up to the second rail of the fence.
I tell myself I will never let it get away from me again,
and it does so then I spend spring chopping weeds.
One of the things I love when I am working out in the garden
in the summer is looking all around and seeing no weeds.
I took a picture of the little almonds that might be
blown off after the storm. We never get a very big
almond crop because they just get about this size and the
wind comes and then the ground will be littered with tiny
little green almonds.
These might be gone too, but I still like weather and
I still like storms. Like any storm I have found. The fruit
that remains will be tastier and larger and the tree will
be stronger for the wind, and the rain. It causes the roots
to go deeper.
I like weather and I like storms and I know the reason that I
do is my eyes are never on the storm but on the One who
controls the storm.
Have a lovely Saturday!
