We had another big thunderstorm last night with a little more rain. Put the two storms together and I doubt you'd get a whole inch, but every drop is precious to our desert.
The sky was so pretty this morning and had a little trail of rainbow filtering from that big white cloud. I had to add a little color saturation to the photo in order to get the rainbow to show up. You can learn all those little tricks with Picasa. I've heard from quite a few readers who want to sign up for classes this coming season.
Here's Nick back to cleaning the pool again. Windy days are always a challenge to keep the pool clean but it is a lot easier now with that line of oak trees gone.
Don sprayed off our patio to rid a few layers of dust. In the process, he chased this little tree lizard out from his hiding place. I think the little guy went into a state of shock when he got blasted with a shot of water from the hose as he just seemed to go dormant. It is certainly unusual to be able to pick one up and hold him for a moment. He wasn't harmed though. After being gently placed back into the flower bed, he soon scooted away to shelter. We thanked him for another blog opportunity. :)
