Seems I've written a lot about the weather recently. Perhaps that is because April's weather has been very strange...rain, hail, ice, temperatures well above normal and well below normal. We know that April showers bring May flowers but we really did not expect such a deluge on the last weekend in rainy April.
Fortunately my husband has finished spreading the new pine straw and fertilizing the plants. So we did just what Henry Wadsworth Longfellow suggested, "The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain."
And rain it did; more than four inches Saturday and Sunday. Looking out the garage toward the driveway.
Lots of rain
On this side as well
Wet yard bird
Wet hummingbird feeders (and birds as well)
Did you think for one minute the rain would ruin our grilled dinner?
Not a chance.
This morning has dawned sunny and bright. The pollen count is down and the rivers are full, overflowing in some areas. We need a week of sunshine please.
