Rainy Thursday Afternoon.

Did you know that when rhubarb goes to seed it is a very pretty plant. I let mine go to seed because I want to plant some else where and I want to try and grow from seeds and not dig up my plant and move it. It likes where it is.  Nice sunny spot right by the house.

My potato's got a smack of frost the other morning but I took off the welted leaves and the plants are coming back to life again. It will take awhile but I think in the end they will be okay.

I have large ice cream containers that I use to cover them at night for now until I am sure the frost is gone for good. Right now we are having a big rain storm. Lots of rain for my gardens. Even hubby could not work in this today so he got a hair cut and came home. I was planing on planting some flowers in pots but my porch is getting rained on so I will have to do something else instead. So the laundry got it's time and I have one load in the dryer and another waiting in the washer.

If you enlarge this picture you will see that my veg garden is finally coming up. It took long enough.

I have these tires that I want to put soil into and plant squash, cucumbers and tomato's in. Another day to wait to do that. 

I got these pots yesterday and just set the flowers in them. Was planing a potting day but will wait for tomorrow.

I hung my hummingbird feeder on the lawn my the pine tree so the birds could perch and then take turns getting some nectar. They don't like to fly in the rain. Who dose.

Well, I have gathered almost all the the threads for this stitch. I need about 4 or 5 more. I have the linen to use and once I get organized I will start to stitch. I have a very large piece of linen and need to count stitches and then cut it to size. I really don't want to be hanging onto allot of linen while I stitch.

 See what I mean about a big piece of fabric, and all of the floss to go with it.

Well, my first load of laundry is done so I have to go fold it and then wait for number two to finish. I hope everyone has a great day. big hugs.
