It’s raining a bit here today and I hope it’s raining back home. We need it! There’s been so little of it that we’ve had to get used to seeing this:
You remember that I stopped my watering when I realized how dry things were? We have a well and I decided using so much water was not a wise idea. When I was home last weekend, I walked around trying to find new grass sprouting up. There was a bit of it, but not much. I think this patch of dirt will be with us until we can reseed again in the fall. But, gosh darn it, the grass surrounding the dirt has been neatly and tidily mowed!
The garden is filling in nicely. (Note the two bathroom rugs drying in the sun.)
The hostas are really taking off. There were 2 or 3 established hostas on the property when we moved in, and I planted several more. I love them. I just planted 2 more over by the shed.
These hostas, day lilies and coneflowers are in a bed right by the front porch.
Wild Honeysuckle grows all over our property. This bush is next to the shed.
And this pink honeysuckle is thriving up on the back forty.
In two days, I get to go home for three days! I am planning on planting my window boxes, pots, and cleaning and prettying up the porch. I’ll be getting some hanging plants, as well. It’s much easier to do this kind of thing when I know I will be home this Spring. For the past 4 years, I’ve had to cross my fingers and hope Don watered everything regularly. And to his credit, he did the best he could. But let’s face it, I am more inclined to make sure everything is moist and happy.
We’re heading into the last two days in the rehearsal room. On Saturday, everything moves onstage and tech rehearsals begin. Today and tomorrow we have run-throughs of the entire show. That means lots of note-taking on my part.
Have a great Thursday.
