About Me

My photo
I'm a quilting, knitting, sewing, cooking,reading, gardening nut who can never find enough hours in the day to get it all done. Then again, getting it all done is out-of-the question. I'm too easily distracted.

Sunless Spring…..

It's done nothing but rain here for days…and you would think I would be spending my time sewing, but I'm not.
I keep darting outside between raindrops to work / play in the garden.
Today I ran to Home Depot (in the rain) to get several bags of topsoil to fill in some low spots that have become low spots because of the torrential downpours we have experienced.
After I loaded, unloaded, and spread the dirt (all while it rained) I changed into dry clothes and ran back out…(yes, into the rain again) to snap some quick pictures.

 The first lilac blooms…..

Some Jack in the Pulpit

Hosta and Columbine

Hosta and Poppy…and my little gargoyle…all waiting for some sunshine!
However…..they will all have to wait quite awhile…there isn't anything other than rain predicted for quite a few more days……

So lush and green, one wonderful side effect of rain.

I have to say that I love the greenery, but I don't expect that we are going to have a very great summer this year. It is predicted to be cooler and wetter than usual. :(

We will just have to make the most of it, right?
