We're continuing to have a lot of rain and I really don't mind. Everything is growing great guns. I had a pleasant mother's day lunch out with Bill and it stopped raining long enough to get there and get back without driving in the fierce winds we had yesterday. I am able to enjoy the natural world from windows during the storms. We've also been having at least some part of each day when I can get outside and take pictures, although it's starting to get pretty muddy from all the rain we've been having.
In spite of the mud I am trying to walk around my garden whenever it stops raining because each day I spot something new. I was pleased that my gerber daisies are already blooming.
I always have a ton of Queen Anne's Lace which I enjoy. It's a weed or a volunteer depending on your point of view but I like to think of it as a much enjoyed volunteer in my garden. My blackberry vines are another volunteer and last year I had a ton of blackberries to enjoy. This year will be the same if all the blossoming vines are anything to go by.
