Rain, Rain, Go Away...

It's raining, it has been raining, it rained over the weekend, it rained yesterday, it is raining now and it is forecasted to rain tomorrow.... (heavy sigh)....

Even with rain, we enjoyed our camping trip - spent a lot of time in the camper watching movies, but the spots of dryness in between were awesome! We went on some really beautiful ATV rides and enjoyed a few campfires, too. It was just good to get away for a bit!

The rain has been making the lawn grow way fast - and poor Tim hasn't been able to get it mowed yet! It is just about up to the ears of the Yorkies right now - ha! They don't like going out in the grass when it is wet, so there have been lots of "messes" on the patio (yuck).

And the rain seems to be planting weeds in my garden!! And they are fast fast growing weeds, too - I need to get out there and remove them if the rain ever stops. But, the good thing is I see lots of blooming things happening: 2 of my clematis vines have begun blooming (one burgundy, the other pale pink), blue iris blooming, blue & white columbine, and more. I'll get the camera going if I can find a sunny few minutes. Meanwhile, it is going to keep raining according to the weather guy.

Hope you are having sunny days!!

Hi Becky, thanks for stopping by, I'm always happy to meet new people. You have a very nice blog, we've had more rain this year already than last year as we were under drought conditions. You have a lovely garden and the little dog standing guard was hilarious. Congrats on your husbands award at the fund raiser that was great! Well I'll see you soon, hope it stops rainig enough to get the grass cut and your little guys off the patio :O}. Deb
