Rain Rain Go Away

I’m not one to complain about many things but when the ground has become too saturated to even get down to the greenhouse without slipping, I get cabin fever. I attempted to go down this morning and gave up.

Having said all that the garden is really waking up with dozens of Hellebore flowering making the work of planting out seedlings well worth while.

Snowdrops have finished and now seed pods are starting to form, tiny Daffodils and Crocus have taken their place covering the garden in a sea of lavender blue and gold.

Just outside our backdoor on the old air raid shelter, we call the outhouse, is an unknown Chaenomeles, this is the only plant that we inherited from the previous owners of our house back in 1978. Still going strong.

I have a feeling that this picture below has featured in a post before, after all the rain we have experienced this morning I think it is quite apt….

With rain dripping off everything I sit and write this post while listening to Glen Campbells greatest hits….. perfect. Enjoy your day whatever the weather. Sue

  1. Yes, the hellebores are worth waiting for – much later here this year than usual. We also have had damp days, but no really heavy rain which often seems to miss us 😉
