The day after it sprinkled.

  What a beautiful morning - the day after we had cool temps and sprinkles.  The sprinkles of  July 27, 2021. We never received more than just that. It was all day though and the air cleared out and it smelled so fresh and nice.  The fish enjoyed the sprinkles.  Their names are Sharkie, Gil, Fin, Corona, Casper, and Flo.  The first bloom - water hyacinth  It usually starts blooming in June but perhaps it was too hot or the smoke just delayed it. We're happy to see them starting to bloom.  With the drought, just about everything is bloomed out or just dead.
