A few days ago the fires in California where raging so much and the smoke was so heavy everything looked sad. So, I painted myself a happy little sunflower to brighten my day.
I feel for all those who lost homes and life in the fire area. I pray for their healing and recovery. The fires raged through my beloved Gold Rush County, blackening the beautiful terrain I spent my youth exploring. I hope the area can make a speedy recovery.
Starting last night rain began to fall on water starved California. It is such a welcome site. It is still raining this morning. What a wonderful site and smell. Almost forgot how nice the air smells during and after a rain.
