I could have taken quite a few pictures to document the events of the day, except my camera battery lost its charge!
Here is what I cannot share through images:
1. cutting back a very tall hibiscus plant (I sure hope it lives).
2. baby trout getting transferred from the concrete container into a small pond. As the water was being drained, the Trevorettes were so clear, it would have made a fabulous picture, not to mention watching them swim out of the conduit to their new home.
3. another cow found on the other side of the makeshift gate near the aqueduct system. Then, the cow walked along the river. We figured she would cross over to her owner's land. 15 minutes later, she managed to climb the riverbank and was standing on our path, munching our flowers right outside our living room window.
Note to self: MAKE SURE the camera battery is charged!!
Other than that, it was just another gorgeous day. We haven't had rain in a very long time. We had a few dark clouds hover our property for a few minutes, but they didn't stick around for long. The grass is starting to yellow for lack of moisture. The fireflies are coming out in the evenings, which apparently means that rain is coming. The rainy season starts in May... so, another month and the earth's thirst will be quenched. It sure will be nice.
