It's a pretty sounding name for a month. It's about reds and pinks and hearts and birthdays for people I love. And people I like too. And it has such a pretty birthstone, Amethyst. It brings us just a little closer to Spring and pretty colors besides shades of brown. We aren't sure we will have green hills or wildflowers this year due to the drought, but I can enjoy all of yours.
It rained yesterday. Rained about a half inch here on the Central Coast. We celebrated. When you're living in a severe drought zone and haven't felt the rain in nearly a year, let me tell you, it feels amazing. Thank you, Mother Nature.
The chickens went all over the property looking for bugs and worms to suddenly appear in the wet ground. I'm not sure they were rewarded but it gave them new hope. The donkeys stood under their shelter much of the day and ate too much hay. Donkeys don't like the rain, not one bit. They looked a little bewildered.
So February is here and let's hope it brings lots of good things.
The last sunset of January.
