Hi all, It's raining one of those nice rains with a little thunder off in the distance with no wind. Dead calm and it's beautiful listening to the rain fall on our tin roof. I thought I'd share a few photos that were taken from the front door and then the back door. Hope you enjoy, Mona

How wonderful and peaceful! We are supposed to get this rain later today and more likely tonight. I hope that we will. We could use a good rain. I hope it will help with your headache. At least it will wash the pollen away and that should help you to feel better. Too much to do to not feel good.

I am headed outside to plant. I have been to Home Depot to get bags of cypress mulch for some of our pathways. It is half price this weekend.

Yes Doris, I saw that ad from Home Depot. They are my favorite big store for supplies. My headache is tons better.

I'd love to go to HD but, I really don't need to spend any money right now, so I think I can manage without going because if I did, I'm sure I'd find way tooo much to buy. That darn HD credit card could get me into serious trouble!!!

It's still raining and I just thought about I have 4 trays of seedlings sitting outside on a table. They are the biggest of the bunch, so I guess they'll be ok. I'm fixing to brave the rain and run check.

Oh, one of my favorites! Chionanthus! Mark on the spider robin just posted his, as well. (Fl)

They are too wide to plant one here, but I do have one on an estate and I just love it! So fragrant.

Sorry that you are down in the dumps with all the work. Too cold/windy here today for outside this morning but helper is out there. I am doing computer picture work, and charts. I want to end up doing one for those wonderful picture charts this year.

Will repot some daylilies this afternoon as I got the compost AND BARK MULCH for a test mixture!

I wish we were having rain, the ground is a bit dry. We did have some snow though, something I'd rather not see again till December.

Well, I made it to check on my seedlings. They are ok, I think, maybe a little too much water. They are under a huge old oak tree, so it kept some of the rain off them. It would have been good for them if the trays I have them in had drain holes, but alas, they don't. So, I had to stand outside in the rain, a warm rain at that, and pour the water out of the trays(about 4 inches) slowly so as not to turn the cups upside down. I got a nice shower while doing this. It only took about a minute apiece but then I had to tote the heavy, water laden, things back into the greenhouse. Once inside, I took a small cup and dipped the most of the water out. A turkey baster finished off the rest of the water.I'm sure they will be more as the water drains out of the cups. I've been taking this group in and out of the GH this past week trying to get them used to the outside world. I'll be potting them up into gallon pots soon.

Yes, we needed this rain too, but we got about 4 inches in around 6 hours. It was really nice though, just a steady good shower. When I finished and went back inside, I had to change clothes, I was like a soaked puppy. Speaking of puppy, my old dog, Conrad, just had to go out with me and he was pitiful!! David dried him while I dried myself. Afterward we all got busy washing clothes. I managed to get chilled alittle bit, so I wrapped up in my favorite recliner to get warm around 1pm and the next thing I knew, it was 4pm. First nap I've taken in months. When I have a little fever, it just saps me. I sure do feel better.

Michele, I just saw a weather map. The rain is getting close to you, I think. Maybe ya'll get some too.

Wow, snow, it seems plum strange but I'm sure we could still get some. I remember in 1989(I think) we had snow on my father-in-laws birthday, April 18th. Huge flakes fell for about 2 hours but nothing stuck. It was beautiful. Tickled the old man(yeah old man, he was 64 and that's not old anymore!!!)

The dryer just called my name. I hope everyone is having a great day. Mona

I always yell for the family to come see how green it is every Spring. I call it green rain!! That's what makes our home, our home. It is just that peaceful when it rains like it did today. We don't have alot in dollar value, but I feel so blessed to call this place home. Thanks Rita and everyone, I wanted to share my love with ya'll. Mona

Well, it's raining now. The daylilies will be happy especially the ones we just planted. It doesn't make for a good road trip though. We are headed to Terah and Jesse George's to pick up 60 clumps of daylilies for our club sales. 5 hours driving in the rain isn't fun. It's not suppose to be raining there so hopefully it will slack off down the road a bit.

Ok Michele, 3:48am is a little early for anyone to get up. Sometimes I;m still up from lack of sleep.

I hope your trip is a safe one and have fun. Mona

I got up around 2am to give myself time to wake up and such and do a little bit on the computer. I think we left the house around 3:30am. We are on our way back now; should get home around 6ish. Had a good visit with the George's. No daylilies blooming of course but the iris were. We took all the passenger seats out of the van so we could pack 60+ clumps in here. Some of these clumps are like 50 fans. It stopped raining about an hours and a half away from their place which was good.

Mona, these are for local sales. I haven't taken any photos but I will tomorrow when I drop them off where they will be planted. Another club member will be taking care of them until the sales. I haven't made it home yet because the interstate was backed up and it put us about an hour behind in getting home.
They won't be all divided at one time, we have three different sales and one of them is 3 days in a row. We do have plenty of members to divide, clean, and tag thank goodness.

I'm glad they don't have to be all done at once. That would be a job. I hope you're home by now. I know you have to be tired just from traveling much less from all the rest. Here's to an early night for you.
