Rainy Day Gardens

We have had so much rain this season.  It’s not even fun to be outside as the bugs are overwhelming in the early morning and from dusk until late evening.

The gardens cheer me up with their happy little flowers.  This wildflower garden is a bit wild as I can’t get in there to thin it out even when raining as the mosquitoes attack!  I love the pink, orange, purple and yellow all blending together.

Along the garage the red and white impatiens compliment the red and white of our old farmhouse.

The entry way to the house is dotted with color.  However, there is one dark black thing that doesn’t belong.  She insists on cutting through this garden and hits a plant here and there!

In the mini rose garden I truly believe Mary is praying for some dry weather.

And while so many flowers are starting to bloom or in full bloom, others are losing their luster and filling their little sleeves with seeds to fly away in the wind when they are done and start little plants for next spring.

  1. The gardens have loved the rain, but I also really like when the sun comes out and stays with us for a while. My friend is a farmer and her schedule is much affected by the rain – I just realized the other day where the saying “make hay while the sun shines” comes from, because she has been waiting and waiting to bring in the hay.
