Rainy Day. It's Monday.

It's raining. It's Monday. I'm not down. It's been too long since we've had rain. Right now, it's a nice gentle rain falling. It'll turn into storms before the afternoon is done. The line of storms is moving Northeast at a steady pace. I hope it rains all day. It's 77 degrees.

It always rains just as the peonies come into full bloom.

Mr. Lincoln is really impressing me this year. I had a few blooms like this last year, but only one at a time. I love this plant.


Lagerfeld smells great. The pink coloring disappears as the blooms open to a silvery lavender.

The pink hybrid tea is impressive this year too.

My first strawberry.

Beans. I need to redo the teepee poles I set up for these. All of them are leaning due to high wind yesterday. I need to lash them together with some horizontal bamboo poles. I have plenty left.

I see the dampness of the rain. Our neighbor has Mr. Lincoln and he has 100's of blooms every year, seriously, 1oo's..

It has barely drizzled so far here today. I do hope we get a generous rain. It's a chore to keep all of my seedlings moist out in the garden.

No rain here so far. It keeps fizzling out. We could use it.
