But fall rain is good too.
As I stepped into church yesterday, I looked
back at the parking lot and said to the lady
handing out the program for the day… “look..
Farmer’s Sunshine”… we both smiled. We all
agree (about 4 of us) that we dearly needed it.
I can remember my father loving the rain in the spring
and summer..but not at the end of summer when it
was haying time. It would always be the subject of
joy after not having rain for a while.. at the co op.
My husband who passed away in 1986, could tell
when the rain was coming within 4 days. So my
parents would call him to find out how he felt. If
he felt great, then they would cut the hay.. If his
legs hurt they knew it would rain on the hay that
was about to be cut down.
Yep, Farmer’s Sunshine… and gardeners too….
