It's been raining a while. The weather map shows more heavy rain in the forecast for today. It's 57 degrees.

Work again today. I'm looking forward to Wednesday when I have a whole day off. I get another on Friday. I'll get lots of things done in the yard those two days.

It is absolutely pouring right now. I love the sound of the rain and the birds. Better than any alarm clock.

6:52 pm - It turned out to be a great day. The rain broke, the sky cleared and threatened all day. It's sunny and breezy at the moment.

I bought a six pack of begonias today. I don't necessarily NEED another 6 begonias. But I did have to HAVE that petunia that was growing in one of the cells.

In sunlight

In shadow

The shadow version is closer to her actual color. I thought it was black the first time I looked at it. I'll have to keep this one going in the cloner for a while.

At least if you have to be at work, the days should be cruddy then, and not when you have time to be home. Thank goodness for small favors, and then mother nature can water everything for you:-D

It stopped raining just when i got to work. Home now for lunch and it's mostly sunny with some scattered clouds. I suspect we'll get more storms this evening. Loving the rain. I really want to get my corn and beans planted this weekend.

I'm not usually a petunia person but that one is gorgeous-what a find! Don't forget to save the seeds so you can grow some more next year!
