Rains Return! (2010)

Bendum: FernsEl Niño finally waned in May and the rain gently came from the hills at night and again during the days that followed as the inter-tropic cloud convergence coming off the equator started to give us the moonsoons long awaited.

We probably had rains two weeks earlier than Manila and never suffered the more extreme drought in the broader plateau of Malaybalay and Valencia. Overnight everything turned fresh green and you could smell the growth. Some illegal cutting in the hills again causes concern but finally we have some meetings called for with local government and offending parties.
