Rain, Rain, Go Away ? .....

We haven't had a lot of rain in the past month but we were drenched with it this past weekend. We had so much outside work that we needed to do. I'd really rather it rain during the weekday while I am in the office (with no window) working. But beggars can't be choosers. Today it is beautiful weather again and it's a weekday again.

To make me feel better about being stuck inside on nice days, I'll show you a picture of my flower bed at the end of the driveway. I still need to mulch it but it is looking pretty good!

And a close-up of the lily plant that "Computer Geek" gave me for Mother's Day last year. This is just one of the stalks! Look at all the buds!

Blessings, Cathi

I wish you could share some of your rain with us . . . . we are sorely lacking.
I always thought it would be nice if rain would come overnight while we sleep - then we could enjoy beautiful sunshiny days every day *s*

I've been loving the rain because I worry about the well. :-) Funny thing when I lived in England I hated the rain or shall I say was sick of it raining all the time!

We had the rain last week too! Looking forward to a sunny holiday weekend. Your flower bed looks fantastic! I love lillies!

The sun needs the rain for the rainbow to be:)

The garden looks wonderful. We are in mulch mode too. The woman who owned our house before us was a landscaper and we have soo many beds it's never ending!

I'll send you some sun from PA.
