If the Creeks Don’t Rise… Springtime in the Ozarks

Wild Ozark will be at Terra Studios tomorrow.

But with the rain we might get overnight and in the morning, the odds are looking poor. If I can’t make it there on Saturday, then on Sunday I should be able to make it. Springtime in the Ozarks usually means more rain.

Ordinarily we do get a lot of rain in springtime. But we’ve been getting a lot more rain than ordinary since *last* spring.

Just in case I don’t get any pictures this year of the ephemerals, because springtime in the Ozarks sometimes has a tendency to knock the blooms down before I get to take their portraits, here’s a link from previous year.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!

When I saw your comment “if the creeks don’t rise” I of course opened the message. Indeed, rising creeks had implication for folks living in the hills and hollows. My last collection of short stories, “If the Creeks Don’t Rise” reflected the same interaction and dependence on things happening beyond… Read more »
