It drizzled in the last three days . In places in my my garden, empty sand came alive. For example in the picture above, I have no idea what has sprouted. There are other sproutings also. I choose to be believe that there is something very potent and life giving about fresh rain, maybe something that it picks from the upper atmosphere. Because when I water the garden, things do sprout, maybe in ones and twos. Even those that I plant, struggle to sprout. The rain has awakened the soil in a such richness and bounty! Not sure how much of this will survive the hot sun of the next few months. Lets see. The rain has been my unpaid planter.
