It's been such a busy Winter and Spring, which has been evident by the neglect of my little blog.
We have been busy, ridding Winter debris and making it look like Spring again. Sweet Husband and been staining and cleaning and raking and digging. one *fun* event was cleaning out the gutters. I was tasked to *hold* the ladder while he blew water through the gutters with a power washer. He had suggested I wear a hat because I could get wet. I should have thought it through more. He was cleaning out the gutters, where was all the gutter debris going to go? I didn't realize it would be raining down on me, the hat did me little good as I ended up being soaked with gutter goop. I got suspicious that getting me wet was in the plan the whole time...lol
There is still work to be done, painting, mending of fences, replacing doors, more staining but things are done enough for us to be able to sit outside and enjoy the quiet time in the garden.
Our biggest challenge has been the rain. Either it's raining or the ground is too wet because it had been raining, so that has slowed us down a bit when it comes to working outside. The photo below was taken on Memorial Day as Tropical Storm Bonnie paid a visit. Made for quite a wet day and an interesting one for us because we had our Community Group over for a barbecue. It was a bit wet but that seemed to add to the enjoyment.
I hear there's rain in the forecast for the next week, my plants will love it and it will save me from having to water. Here a little of what is blooming in our garden, what's blooming in yours.
