We have come to a new appreciation of rain. We have not had enough of it in the recent past. Minor drought conditions have prevailed.

This week we got plenty of rain. Although we only recorded about two inches, parts north of here got as much as ten inches.

Spring rains are important. April showers bring May flowers. Or so the saying goes. Rain also conditions the ground. Not just the flower beds but the yard as well. A wet yard makes weed pulling easy.

Sure, we can use a herbicide but that might also kill the flowers and the grass. Besides, it costs money and it might not be all that friendly to humans either. It is much more pleasant to sit on a green lawn, enjoying the fresh air and sunshine. It is particularly enjoyable when the ground is wet enough to permit pulling weeds, roots and all.
