Signs of life

An imperial (Eacles imperialiso) in the inland sea oats
During this extreme drought, we are watering our plants every other morning. This morning, I showered survivors in the back yard. And for the first time in a long time, I actually felt HOPE. Maybe it was because the morning air felt so cool (78 or 79 degrees). Or maybe it was because I spotted some signs of life. Whatever the case, I just felt GOOD being outside this morning. Even when the he-squirrel fussed and chattered at me....
 
A young toad!
