Rain, Rain, Go Away
Even though we are missing the worst of the storms, our yard is still a soggy mess. Imagine walking on a huge sponge saturated with water, that's our yard. And it will stay that way for days. Just as it starts drying out, guess what, more rain. I will never get my flower beds worked for the spring. I still haven't gotten leaves raked, way too wet for that. And I want to get the neighbors leaves and the ones at the church. Also, the lady who bought my Mom's place said we could come rake there, nothing but big oaks covering the whole yard. The more leaves, the less weeding I will have to do this summer. Plus, it gives all the little worms something to eat, then I get nice rich worm castings for free. I like to bag the leaves and put grub worms in the bag with them, more castings. The rain is stopping me from rooting plants I want to sell at a plant sale this spring. I am hoping to get enough money to buy some bedding mix for a new flower bed. Oh well, can't do anything about Mother Nature can I. Sorry for complaining, I feel all better now.

I know Glenda, the same thought crossed my mine when I was ranting and raving about the rain. This summer I was fussing because it was too dry and would have loved to see all this rain. Now it is raining and I am fussing because it is not dry. I guess men are right, there's no pleasing a woman.
Gosh I think we all have the same compaint at the moment. My garden is more of a bog than anything e;se. I don't think we've had more than just a few dry days since October.
