It's Raining!

It's not a heavy rain, but it is steady.  One half inch so far and more promised.

I weeded the strawberry  bed yesterday and it needed moisture badly.  I may still water if this rain isn't enough.  Speaking of weeding............what a  job, but I got it done!  The plants are not very tall but are loaded with white blooms.  I am keeping my fingers crossed that our frosts are finished.

I have the tomato plants and cabbages hardening off on the screened porch (the carpenter still is a no show to enclose the porch.)

I also mowed the east yard for the second time. 

I took this picture through he morning rain out the office door:
  The red bud is now blooming and the lilac is still looking good.  That small bed in the lower left has a viburnum just leafing out, jonquils that are done and daylilies coming on.


and my favorite tree because of the apricot colored peeling bark,  betula nigra.  When it leafs out the bark won't be so noticeable but then it completely screens  the front of most of the house from the road.

Plans today are making English Muffins......

  1. Please keep the rain! Our snow melting is making the ground plenty wet enough!

    1. We wish we had received more; just an inch. We had no snow melt this year to speak of and a very dry fall so we are greedy.

  6. Great to see your blog. Your April sounds a lot like ours was, all the way across the sea. I like your birch tree also. Before we moved to our current apartment, we lived in a neighborhood where all the street names were of trees. We lived on Del Faggio (beech) and the next street over was Betulle. Of course the Italian names are close to the Latin names, so your Betula nigra jumped right out at me.

  7. Mary, thanks for visiting. I am learning a few Italian words from you and Joyce. I have to stop often and look up a word! I love it.

  8. They say learning a foreign language is good for old brains! (I'd hate to think what mine would be like were I NOT studying Italian every day.)
