Our yard really comes alive with new growth

during the Prescott, AZ monsoons.

Arizona Monsoon

Who knew that it was going to rain so much in July when we moved here?

We didn’t.

I had never heard of the monsoons before.


It can be beautiful blue skies

in the morning

and hot. Soon a thunderstorm will roll in

and a deluge of rainfall will

create rivers in our backyard.


New growth where once there was just plain,

dry dirt, springs forth life!


It’s quite a sight as within a few days


there are new plants everywhere.
