RAINING~ huge storm moved in in the wee hours of morning. Not so much thunder and lightning as an abrupt and long lasting deluge.
Wonderful to sleep to the rain pounding on the roof (although I did have few concerns for the trees out front) Today, more rain. Some heavy. Some light, with very few breaks between the fronts. Streets are flooded (of course, this is the LowCountry) Everything is fresh and green and the dang morning glories have gone nuts literally overnight and completely COVER the entire side fence!
It was a good day. Got daughter’s car back from repairs. Worked here at the house and made some small progress. Still much to do. The tiny green shoots of my morning glories have poked above the soil an in a few weeks I will have flowers in a rainbow of colors. It will be fun to see just what we have,
The dogs all got baths out in the kiddie pool in the backyard. They love their baths and now they smell pretty too.
Next up for this weeks… try to get another 4 chapters edited. Work. And keep working on this house.
Enjoy SPRING ya’ll!
It is Monday…again. Not sure how that happens so often 😉 The weekend was lovely, if hectic. The car is still in the shop (seems Hyundai is rather sloppy about getting and shipping parts) So we are managing all of our trips in the Miata… which just has to make ya smile.
No garden supplies or soil till we get my car back, but we did stop and nab some tiny tomato plants… heirloom, of course… and decided to try out hand at white eggplant. Found lovely Japanese heirloom variety with smaller egg shaped fruit… very excited to see how long before they up and kicking out pretty white eggplants for the table.
Got morning glory seeds to start… we really wanted some interesting striped ones I’d seen, but this is a pretty heirloom mix of colors and will look nice trellised up the porch pole.
Looks like lots of gardening to be done this week. Won’t that be fun!!!
Spring is such a treasure.
