Here it is noon on the first day of May and what is it like here? Cold and rainy! We have 56 degrees and it has rained since we got out of bed this morning. It's quiet. Eli and Smokey are sound asleep on the front porch. Good sleeping weather.
Poppy in his camo is sitting in front of the TV waiting for the rain to stop. He is off work this weekend off to turkey hunt again. Me, I'm waiting for the rain to stop so the turkey hunter can get out of the house for a while.
Guinea Winnie was scurrying up the path to tell Henny Penny that the sky was falling. The sky is not falling said Mr.Rooster. It's raining!
The Iris are opening. All the same color. Years ago I ordered Iris bulbs in mixed colors from a nursery catalog. That first year there were some unusual colors but now all the Iris look the same. Weird.
The teeny tiny garden is pathetic! It has simply been too cold for vegetables to grow. Even the squash and cucumbers seeds have not sprouted. The yard long beans are through the ground but then who ever heard of a bean not coming up. Next week should be just what the garden needs...sun and temperatures in the low 80's for the whole week! That should make a big difference.
Yesterday I raked a little shortcut path through the woods to the teeny tiny garden and greenhouse.
The rain has slacked off and Poppy has finally gone hunting. I had planned to vacuum, but hunting and searching through the cabinets for something to snack on sounds better. I'm on a roll, you know. This rainy day is about shot anyway! : )
