Blue Skies and Sunshine

The 3 days of rain have ended without any severe weather. We got less than 2 inches of rain so our gardens survived.

Al was concerned the rain would wash away the soil and seeds so  He made a berm from old logs.  Our upper garden is towards the bottom of a hill and last year all of our mulch washed away after the first rain.

We are learning from our mistakes.

It’s funny, Al comes from a family of farmers, but apparently it didn’t rub off on him!

Today is absolutely gorgeous out.  We just went outside for a walk.  It is 65 degrees, no wind, and sunny.  It’s amazing how the rain and warmer temperatures have helped to green things up.

The peach trees have started to bloom, as well as Azaleas, Magnolias, and Dogwoods. 




It’s getting green!
