Spring Rain. Just found a new reason to be grateful for a sudden downpour. Picked up limbs, raked and cleaned out flower beds for an hour before lunch and three hours after. My knee was being its usual whiny self and I wanted to quit, but I had committed to getting at least 2 (of 22) flower beds cleaned up. Had just finished #2 and started on #3 when it got dark like evening. I called Sugartoes and we barely got in with just a little sprinkle on our backs. Now I am reveling in the sound of it all as I chill out with my computer. Don't forget to change your clocks tonight if your region observes Daylight Savings Time.

It's such a good time to pull weeds and clean up. The weed roots come up so easily, roots and all so fast and neat. Spring is such a time of promise and renewal and the flower blooms are so heavenly. Been watching the birds start to gather twigs for nests and the squirrels are scampering about. Nature is awesome.

Getting the same Showers of Blessings here. They are saying though that in the early morning hrs possible to get rain, sleet or snow.. Since you are further South than I am hope you will be out of harms way/Lillian

No snow expected here, but we got many bucketsful of rain again last night. My ground is too soggy to dig.

I'm glad you and Sugartoes made it in before the rain and now you can rest and enjoy the raindrops. I admire you being able to manage so many garden beds. Your place must be a showcase.

Not a showcase, but what I want as a gardener. Some of the beds are just small beds of daffodils or snowbells for February. The only really large bed is the daylily garden which adjoins the veggies. Not sure we are having veggies this year because of the knee - it's a hike out there and water to haul around, etc. It poured rain for almost an hour today.
