When we bought this house last year, the previous owners (and the owners before that) told us that there was an artesian spring that runs in our back yard from November until February. There would be times that the water was high and the sound would be beautiful to listen to.
Well, then came the drought of 2007.
But, the recent rains (especially from last night) have created our own simulated artesian springs! And, the sound is pretty - and the bridge built to cross it was definitely needed. Thank you, God, for our much needed rain!
