I find it interesting what the rain brings. Here are a couple of recent photos.
It may not be apparent, but the dark area is a colony of ants who have swarmed around something embedded in the crack in the sidewalk.
This mushroom is one of very many that have sprouted in the neighborhood, now that the rain has enabled the spores to flourish.
Finally, grass seed that I planted in May, just before the drought, has finally sprouted and started to cover a bare spot in the ground.
