We finally got it; rain at last. Last count was l.25 inches of the precious liquid.  More is due this afternoon.  It came down slow and steady so I hope it didn't wash away the lettuce seed.

I am happy to report that I  did get started  with the chainsaw pruning.  Bless garden carts!  I  loaded mine with the drop cord, the chainsaw and various other hand tools.  DH was  with me  to pull the rose bush away as I cut it,  It was an Alba rose and very thorny. 

There is also a young peach tree in this bed and the row of dried perilla plants that need to be pruned and removed.

This was my stopping point.  Rains were coming  so we drove the cart into the old chicken house/aka mower shed and came in.

It did take a few pictures of the daffodils before starting  my work.

this is what I was happy to see.  I am the only person I know who has never had luck with forsythia!  After cutting these to the ground twice now, I finally have blooms!


  1. It was a much need blessing for us.

  2. Glad to hear you got your needed rain. Probably could still use more?

    Your yard is so very beautiful in season, but it does take a lot of work to keep it that way, doesn't it?
