and the rains came

anybody know that book? louis bromfield. he was a kind of a rightwing john steinbeck without anything approaching steinbeck's talent. he had a really good farm radio show for awhile. lots of information about taming arkansas [okark] clay with alfalfa and turning uninhabitable property into friable soil.

doesn't matter.

except the rains may have come. our monsoon season may be starting [goody, goody]. the air has that great wet-dust smell that a first rain always brings. makes you want to go outdoors and just inhale.

it has been so dry here, as it should be at the end of the tourist season [easter officially, according to the officious]. but tonight a gentle, soaking rain has settled in. if it continues through the night, i will be able to plant the rose apple [syzygium jambos] i bought today and not worry about it.

that's one of the better things about our monsoon season. you can stick a lot of plants in the ground and not worry about watering them or otherwise paying much attention to them until next tourist season [october], at which time you will need a machete to bring them under control.
