After the Rain

Yesterday turned out very well for us weather wise. No extremely serious weather. Hail that kind of stuff - but it was over by the end of the afternoon. After the rain yesterday the color everywhere was green. Everything is greener after a rain. Today the flowers are reaching for the sun and popping up all over. That makes me feel good too all over.

Lots to do this weekend - plant all my vegetable seeds and some more vegetable and fruit plants from the Mart store. I also have got to get to work and this new flower bed I need. I have babies arriving next week from Springhill Nursery.

In addition to planting this weekend I am going to visit these three kids. Three of my favorite people - Gavin, Ben and Luci. They were sick last week so this week it is. Can't wait to see them.

I've just found your blog - hi! Glad your weather was not too bad. Are tornadoes a risk where you are? We get plenty of winds here but not too serious.

Glad you didn't have any real bad weather and you finally saw some sun.

Hi Becca - thanks so much for stopping by for a visit. I've enjoyed looking at all your flower pictures - you know us garden girls can never see enough flowers. I'm glad you escaped all the bad weather - we faired very well too. It sure was eery out though. Happy Plantin' to you! Cathy
