Unusual Events: Rain in Santa Fe

"Nothing helps a garden the way a good downpour does..."

Santa Fe was perplexed today by an unusual event. I could hardly believe my eyes, or ears for that matter. After all I've written about my garden in this blog….NOTHING helps it the way a good downpour does. I think you should see my truly-simple-video on YouTube, and then, you should bookmark it so when we're back in a dry, hot spell, you can always play this movie and imagine and remember "coolness."

Have fun and,
Happy Trails to You
