Whereas most may frown or feel “blah” when they experience rainy weather, this time of year.
In my neck-o’-the-woods, the early spring rains come as a very important blessing and an equally important reminder of the cycles and needs of Nature. With Imbolc gone and passed, comes the anticipation of Spring and all of the goodness it brings with it. Much of this possible, only by adequate water from the Winter and early Spring months.
Our previous two years were very dry and very choked with lots of smoke from the many wildfires. Last year particularly, the “Fire season” started about a month and a half earlier than usual. This makes much of the available camping grounds NOT available for the remainder of the season; all due to the fires.
These late Winter and early Spring rains come as bountiful blessings as the snows of the Winter did. This accumulation of moisture is very important to all of us, especially in the high deserts like up in the Inter-Mountain areas. So, maybe a thought or two about the importance of Nature’s bounty; be it of grains and fruits, right down to the amount of rain and snow! These rainy days are what nourish and nurture the promises of tomorrow: A beautiful Spring!
