Spring Rains

We've had rain every day for the past week.
Flowers love the rain, and unfortunately grass does too.
It's not a good idea to mow wet grass, so mowing in between showers has been challenging.
I've idled away in the potting shed, cool, rainy days remind me of England. *sigh* 
 
 
 


 
 
 



The difference a year has made, we now have grass growing around the limestone steps.
 



I've replaced the moss in the window-baskets, so far the little bird -bandit has not helped herself.

You've done better than we have with the rain. We didn't have any rain here until late Tuesday afternoon. Somehow, the rain just wouldn't make it across the Plateau for us.

Lovely window box! xo

We've had so much rain, the goldfish are swimming out of the pond onto the rock patio. More is coming in a day or so for you.

Even your potting shed is charming.

We have had more than usual rain fall here in Colorado, and boy is our countryside green and the garden flourishing. Your garden is beautiful, too.

Yes it seems spring is hanging on for a long time this year but I'm okay with that. Love it, love it! Rain, we've been so lacking here and this is just wonderful. In fact, this morning as I write here (5:30am) the thunder is rolling and the pitter patter of raindrops is on my window. Good morning! Carla

I stumbled across your blog. When I saw Tennessee I stopped because my kids live in Nashville and my heart is in Tennessee. I love your blog. Your landscape is beautiful and your garden looks like an English garden that I've seen from your homeland. The stepping stones resemble how I would view the path through a secret garden. Love it!

Your garden is so beautiful. I really like the fence and would love to watch the little bird stealing your moss. It is encouraging to see and remember what we will be seeing by next month.

Beautiful photographs as I always expect from your blog. Here in England it has been sunny and hot 25 degrees C. We have had a lot of rain recently, partially washing a small amount of the drive away.

A late comment. :) You have such a beautiful place. The stepping stones leading up to the bunny look heart shaped. Every spot in your yard must look like pictures from a beautiful story book.
