This is the first year since we moved into Coppertop 2.5 years ago that the stream bisecting our land has flowed continually throughout the entire summer and into fall. Of course this is related to the amount of snowfall our ‘backyard’ Olympic Mountains received over the winter.
In past years, we’ve considered our stream a 3-season stream since it dried up by July and began flowing again as late fall rains began. In 2016, it’s officially become a permanent feature of these gardens, and we’re thrilled. Its babbling accompaniment to time spent in these gardens is a beautiful thing.
Celebrate the stream!
