The rain has been on and off all day, so we got in quite a bit of gardening, actually. The yardâ€™s looking so pretty right now. The frogs are all over the pond, too. They make a huge racket every night. Quite the frog orgy out there, I think.
To cheer myself up from teen kid woes, I’ve spent a lot of time at nearby plant nursery called Brashear’s Nursery in Alstead. Iâ€™d run out of cash yesterday, and they didnâ€™t take plastic. So today, we went with a check book and M.â€™s truck and did a number on cleaning them out! Much fun. Iâ€™m sunburnt from spending so much time outside, and weâ€™re exhausted.
All of the ditch day lilies are blooming right on schedule. I have about a bazillion of them, all from around the old foundation. They are in a very shady area, where they don’t get enough sun to bloom, so I keep moving them out into the garden. I need the plants, and I think they are pretty, even if they are very common. I grew up in a desert! It’s still new to me.
