The rain continues…the fourth day in a row, accompanied by cold temps and a chilling wind.  No planting, too soggy to even move plants to the greenhouse, too windy to move any plants outside to harden off.   Even the potager’s paths are filled with standing water. A critter dug out one of the roses my daughter planted for me two weeks ago.  And, my dying computer is being replaced later this morning, so if you don’t hear from me, it’s because the learning curve is getting the best of me!Birdbath  At least the world is looking very green now, the irises are opening and the May Queen shastas are budded.  I did manage to remove all the cleavers and deadhead the daffodils before the rains began again in earnest.  Eager to get back into the garden, but until it dries out a bit, I’m reading!

  1. I’m so sorry you’re getting so much rain. It has been dreary and drizzly here for the last couple days, but nothing heavy to leave standing water. It can get so depressing when you want to be out in the garden and you can’t. I know these weeks of dreary, rainy weather have been getting me down and I can at least get in my gardens. Keep smiling Carolee, the sun has to come out eventually.

  2. Hope drier—but not too dry—weather comes your way. It’s been cool and wet in Maine, too.

    How disappointing for you, Carolee! Soft “warm” drizzles are not so bad, but shivery rains are awful. Think of this spell as a good excuse to snuggle inside with a good book. Have you read any of Elizabeth von Arnim’s books? Lovely descriptions of plant life woven into the stories. Later this week, I writing a review of ELIZABETH AND HER GERMAN GARDEN. ~ Jo

    The weather must be deeply frustrating for you, so I hope you’ve got lots of good books. (And that your new computer behaves itself!)
