When the Rains Came Back to California

Note:  For the past year I have been part of the 2016 Journal Project.  In alternate months we have been given a theme and made a 12 inch by 12 inch quilt that was inspired by the theme.

Today was “REVEAL” day for the first quilt of 2017.  This month’s theme is Fantasy.  Here is my take….

Almost every year for the past 5 decades we have driven up the Pacific Coast Highway en route to a favorite vacation spot in Marin County.

What we quickly realized is that the drive is a vacation in itself; an opportunity to unwind, kick back and to enjoy all the natural beauty that this state is famous for.

Rolling green hills to the east as we drive up the coast…and the boisterous Pacific in all its magnificence to the west.

In recent years, that beauty has been hampered by lack of rain.  This drought, of course, has had serious consequences for the state – not the least is the agricultural fallout.   Anyone and everyone who loves to garden or has a lawn to care for has been affected severely with restrictions and penalties.

For that matter, anyone who loves to shower or to brush their teeth has had disruptions of their morning routines.  (not to worry – we still shower – it’s just shorter.  And the most disciplined take pains to recycle the shower water).

So here is my fantasy of the California hills, after the rains come back and wash away the  memories of drought.
