We traveled to the Searsmont area and found a very full river. With all the rain this week, trees, plants in the understory and grasses were exploding with flowers and growth.
This thread coursing to the sea gains momentum from drops gathered all over the place. The Georges River Watershed is a giant shallow bowl that we drink from, water our gardens and fill our wells with, swim, fish and boat in. It nourishes everything. Each apple, blueberry and the thousands of zucchinis that grow here store drops of water that are released when we eat them in the fall and winter. Remember this week’s rain on Thanksgiving Day when biting into an apple pie.
