Lush, Luscious, or Just Drippy?

The Ragtag Daily Prompt today is LUSCIOUS

I wrote a nice post once, but hit the wrong button from the choices above and my post disappeared in the twinkling of an eye. Rats!

So again, I chose this prompt word several weeks ago and scheduled my post, but today we’re not thinking of luscious. We had heavy rain in the night, over two inches in the past 24 hours, so the outdoors is very soggy this afternoon. But it was so needed that I think everyone in this area is rejoicing — except maybe the weekend campers. Wouldn’t be nice in a tend having that much rain pouring over your heads.

The sky is still filled with lumpy, long-hanging clouds, but the sky’s getting lighter and we’ll probably have sunshine tomorrow, and the prairie will have a lush green appearance. Farmers will be smiling cheerfully. Awhile ago I heard a little wren singing his heart out from the woods beside us, and robins are perusing the lawn, grabbing whichever end of the worm is sticking out. We might turn up our noses, but to a bird, a worm is a luscious creature. For the worm, however…

Life can be so stressful at the bottom of the pecking order:

  1. Our fields and gardens are sitting under water. Wasn’t even as bad last year, and last year we thought it was ridiculous for rain. Our poor farming neighbours are likely beside themselves! And, as campers, we are very discouraged. Even though my family is fortunate enough to own a private lake lot such that we don’t have to rely on drastically reduced provincial camping which has largely been spoken for, we won’t be getting there any time soon if this keeps up. At least, being able to camp would be a good distraction from otherwise restricted travel. I’m praying for your tomorrow’s sunshine!
