The clouds are heavy again this morning. We didn't get the storms predicted for during the night. Just a trace of water in the rain gauge. I started out the morning watering my houseplants. Next I have to go down and water the ones in the basement. The basement is very cool, because of the warmer than normal temps outside this spring. The heat doesn't go on as often...so it is cooler. I may have to bring the seedlings upstairs and put them in the windows. The only ones that are robust are the geraniums. The others are tiny, weak, little sprigs. I think that I will pull them out and reseed the white marigolds. I took a walk around the perimeter of the house last evening....looking to see how things were progressing in the gardens. The only things that I don't see are the Japanese Anemones, that we planted last fall. We put them near the statue of Mary...so they would be easy to find in the Spring. Unless they are late...I may have lost them. I hope not,as I really like these flowers. The Virginia Bluebells are popping up in many places in the woods. What a nice thing...plants that multiply on their own. The birds really like this kind of weather. They have a "spring" in their steps. They are all fighting to protect their territory. I haven't heard a wren yet and the orioles haven't arrived. They usually come in May and I better have their feeders filled or they will let me know about it. The grape jelly is ready when they are. Our grass is lush and green. It will have to be mowed soon. Our mower is in for repairs and won't be ready for a week. Joe is looking for someone to mow for the first mowing. Well, that's what is going on at my house. Have a nice day.
