Yesterday was my birthday and we had a fun time of it. Dinner was at our favorite barbecue place and then to the movies to see "The Help". It was a fun time, because we were like kids trying to make the movie in time. We ate our meal in a hurry and watched some clouds containing rain try to make it to where we live, then rushing to the theater. The movie had started when we got there, and we had to grope around in the dark to find a seat, but it was ok.
The sage has been blooming for a couple of days and it is a predictor of rain. Many don't believe and call it foolishness. Happened to me the other day. A woman quite rudely said it rained after the plant bloomed. However, it did rain in Dallas and on the other side of Ft. Worth within a couple of days. It hasn't rained at my house yet, and I've lost my rain stick!
It frequently starts to rain again around this time of the summer. I call it my birthday rain. I'm so happy to see it.
Texas sage blooming and a picture of a rain sticks. If you see mine, please tell it to come home. I miss it. Well, actually we hadn't noticed it was gone until yesterday.
