... It would be nice to have just one dry breezy sunny day a week to get some of this stuff dried out a bit.


If we could only order that and have it fulfilled! Rolling on the floor laughing I'm not going to complain about the rain either, but I'm somewhat concerned that the new plantings will face difficulties once the spigot is finally turned off. They may have been babied through perfect growing conditions for too long to have established adequate roots for hot dry weather. It's definitely been nice weather for seed starting though; they pop up really fast!

I admire your dedication to your blog postings. I can always find something interesting to read here. Thumbs up

Thank you!

I never thought of that! (Oh gee thanks, another thing to worry about :lol:). I think this might be all my fault. In May I dragged out my immense and complicated system of hoses (each hose and connector numbered, with a corresponding map) , laid them all out, hooked them up, repaired leaks, bought new washers, etc. "There," I said out loud, "ready for a dry summer." Then the rains started.... Tell me, does anyone know...can hoses be damaged by mold? Rolling on the floor laughing

Yours and mine both, then! I used the better part of three days worth of spring gardening time to put up several really big shade sails to provide relief from the sun, and now there isn't any!

The wet has been so consistent that I even have a flax plant blooming in the teensy bit of chaff left in a crevice of my bird feeding station!

I am pulling out silver maple seedlings from between my DECK BOARDS. We found more seedlings sprouting in the rain gutters.

I agree This seems to be a really good year for gutter growth, too. Cracks in stumps have provided weedy flowers as well, and now there are seedlings growing in the muck of algae growth on my fountain rocks. They aren't going to get cleaned any time soon, either.

The sun was out here today though Hurray! , so maybe it'll be out for you tomorrow. Smiling
