Raining, but that's okay, I was just at the point of having to water.

Andrea ~ I haven't watered anything but new plants since late fall! We have had an amazing rain/snow season this year! Hurray!

DH added up the rainfall amounts my town has gotten and, oddly enough, we've only gotten a couple of inches more than average. Fortunately, it mostly came in February and after, as the iris started to grow. The rest of the state, of course, got way over average rainfall.

Maybe rain this afternoon for three hours, I'm betting it doesn't though.

Cloudy here, with a predicted high of 57° with a low of 41°!

What a difference from yesterday!

Tomorrow is supposed to be partly sunny with a high of 61°, and a low of 49°. A little bit warmer tomorrow. But, the cool weather will keep the flowers in bloom longer, and of course, delay iris blooming....still, it is better than hot weather! Hurray!

After yesterday's storms, it was very chilly today. Did not breach 60 degree weather that I saw.
What a beautiful sunset!
