Chance of Showers?

One hundred twenty days ago, give or take, it began raining here. Thunderous, copious amounts. We aren't talking spring showers, no siree Bob. Monsoons don't even begin to describe it. It is so bad that I have actually been thinking about moving to Seattle simply for the upgrade in the weather.

Due to all this peachy keen wonderful precipitation, my yard is just about to baling height. Also starting to go to seed. So any new grass will be able to catch up to the established stuff. Is that a yahoo moment, or what?

There is good news of course. The strawberries and blueberries are tickled pink (and blue!).

Everything that I have planted up to this point is thriving. Flowers are blooming.

And the weeds come up pretty easy with the ground so soft.

I know that by the middle of June chances are good that I will be begging for this rain to come back. Undoubtedly that will be the case in July.

So it is time to quit whining, and appreciate what I have.

And what I have is an almost completed ark. Just in case that 'chance of showers' forecast is correct!

Are your blueberry plans producing fruit this year? I know you said it takes a couple of years to do this. Don't get lost in the grass!

The plants have to be a few years old. The ones I bought this year are older so they are producing.
I send the dogs out first to blaze the trails through the grass!
