So Green

No time in the garden this weekend.  We're getting more rain!  Amazing to have all this moisture. Everything is so green.
Have a nice weekend.

Purple Alley

What a beautiful day I had in the garden.  I got the horehound that came in the mail planted, I planted more vegetable seeds, I filled the water gardens and I enjoyed a day with no wind.
Look at the irises and dame's rockets blooming in the alley in the photo.  A lot of purple going on right now.  Hope you had a beautiful spring day too.

Silver Edged Horehound

Some plants I ordered arrived Monday afternoon.  Silver Edged Horehound.  I think they will have to live in the box on the patio for a few days.  It's too muddy to plant (wow, don't hear that said much here) and it is raining again today.  So, instead of another rain photo, here are the plants in a box.

The rain stopped early Monday morning.  After the final check of the rain gauge, we received 5.20" at Garden on Sherlock Street!  My garden hasn't been so well watered in a long, long time.  A little sun today.  Some showers in the forecast through the week.  So thankful for the rain.

Happy Gardening!

Rain Continues

Another photo of rain!  Since Saturday morning, we've received over 4 inches at Garden on Sherlock Street.  Amazing.  Some places in our county are actually under a flood warning for low lying areas.  We're not used to having this much water.  More rain is in the forecast.  While there have been some downpours, most has been a slower soaking rain.  Just what we need.

This is happening right now!  Rain!  We have a chance of rain all weekend.

This will really help our garden and our town and our county and our state....

Thankful for the rain.

A Lot Done!

We had a beautiful spring day today.  My indoor plans were scraped after work and I tackled garden projects instead.  A composting hole was dug, large containers were filled with soil, I rinsed out the large water container we recently acquired requiring flipping it a few times to drain out the rinse water, put up the teepee trellises (in photo) and replaced a soaker hose that had gotten bad.  We have rain in the forecast for Friday and the weekend.  I sure hope so.  Time to sit and look at the tulips.

Have a good night!
