Friends, we have been having lots of rain around here, and hopefully, we're getting
caught up with that 4 inch underage.
It's putting a crimp in haying plans!
The flower beds at the old house are going CRAZY. I was able to stand there for a while and just pull weeds up with almost no effort.
That's monarda in the upper picture, but you can see here that mint is running rampant.
The funny thing is, I want some mint over here, and I know where I'm getting it!
(and it's going into a planter!)
Lest you are saying to yourself... Oh, the south bed looks great...
Here's the north end!
I planned all week to work in it... but we are so busy here
unpacking before the Yoders come to visit, that I have not been able.
I actually did not go out there for five days!
This weekend, the big grandboys come, and we are going
to haul the rest of the large things... saws, cement mixer, etc., down to the
fairgrounds on Monday to check them in for the consignment auction on the 21st.
We will be taking as much as we can down there, and then
what is left, will be going in the dumpster.
We are getting closer and closer to being able to do the inside work
on the house, and get the rental on the market.
My beautiful henspa yard... as you see, the covering has taken a beating this spring.
And yes, plants are invading and beginning to cover it. How I miss the flock that was here, they were truly beautiful birds!
We have been unpacking boxes, as you see. I broke all these down, and my HHR is full and ready for the recycle center tomorrow morning. Little by little, the packed garage is yielding up it's secrets.
Same scene, a little while later. The bins on the left are on their way to the recycle center. I'm being ruthless!
After an inch of rain this morning, you can see that the ground is completely sodden.
I am NOT cutting grass for a while... we have a chance of rain again on Father's Day, and I am
not tearing the John Deere up. People all around us have been cutting the wet grass.
I was using the cart to bring things down from the garage to the basement, but I finally got so worried about the grass being packed down.
And this, finally... is a gift from my friends Georgie and Tweedles.... seeds to bring flowers to our
patio for the summer, and the rain really helped them to germinate!
I'm going to have beautiful marigolds and zinnias.. there is another planter to the left.
Thanks, Georgie and Twee!
