Just a brief post to illustrate how the dry scorched earth can turn into a wet and boisterous place.
It rained for the first time in ages yesterday and today again! (Including as i walked to the gym) It's amazing how fast my rain barrel fills, and even more amazing how all the dried up snails come back out of hiding to slime there way this way and that.

Some of our favorite friends, the Gulf Coast Toads.
We see them all the time at night, from teeeeeeeny bug sized
to big ole' fellas like this one. This guy came a'hopping out of the leaves
to wallow in the 'seasonal stream' along side my house.

Over flowing rain barrel.

Cute now. Not so cute when they're eating the brassicas.
