Spring Weather, Finally

A Cold, Wet Day

It was normal spring weather today, rainy and chilly as spring should be.  After an unreasonably hot March,  we finally have spring-like weather back.  It’s been raining or drizzling on and off all day.  I decided to roll the row cover back over the vegetable seedlings, though I knew they’d be able to deal with 40 degree temperatures. Howevert the cold does slow their growth.  I want my salad sooner.

There was a brief period today when I could duck out with the camera without ruining it.  Something about the silvery, shimmering drops of water that hang on to leaves and flower petals that is very soothing, very meditating.  Nature stages them, I just took the photographs.

Beauty derived of a wet and cold spring day.

  1. The about to bloom Daffodil is saying “Feed Me Seymour!” Your photography of nature is a meditation to view!! Thanks for sharing your garden delights on your blog. I learn something every time I get on. I am always amazed at the advance work that goes into your growing season. You have layers of life, always providing new color and texture through out the garden. As an amateur birder and a neophyte at gardening…I am encouraged to explore new plants and welcome more birds and butterflies by your creative and positive blog! Keep up the great writing and photography. Kim

    1. Thank you. Gardening and birding keep me sane and fulfilled. It keeps me in good health, physically and mentally, and sharing with others the enjoyment either by blogging or giving what I grow.

      Beekeeping is the next thing I’ll do. I’m taking a class now. Will send you honey when we can harvest.
