It's gray and rainy! We might as well be living in the Pacific Northwest! Everything is lush and green.
It's been such a great monsoon season the ocatillo look weird -- they are full and lush and densely covered with green, plus they have new shoots coming out near the top of the branches.
We have been having drenching rains -- both the kind where it just pours down and floods the washes and roads, and the kind where it gently rains for an hour or more. I could do without all the gray weather, but I guess it's worth it for the great amounts of rain we are getting.
