The past few days we have gotten much needed rain, not sure how much…but enough to made a puddle in the driveway…that usually means an inch of rain.
What do you do on rainy days?
We picked up flowers from most of the cemeteries that we visited last week. I am always discouraged. At my Paternal Grandparents my flowers were the only ones there. At my Maternal Grandparents my cousin Vickie always takes a hanging geranium. BUT wait…two grands out of how many …40 some and only two brought flowers? Far Guys Maternal Grandparents only had our flowers…his Paternal Grandparents fared a bit better with several visitors…some with real flowers! I have various other relatives that are ignored too…so I leave flowers.
Perhaps I should plant Iris.
Not sure who will take over for us when we are no longer able…
We used to take real flowers but then you have to haul water…so we take nice bouquets of silk flowers. They are drying in the woodshop now and will be packed away for next year. Far Guy likes to get them picked up right after Memorial Day because it makes it easier for the people that mow and trim.
Having a holiday on Monday always messes me up, I am never sure what day of the week I am on…must be an old age thing.
One day we headed to town to do errands and buy a bag of soil for the flower bed out front. I got the flower garden weeded and the new soil all mixed in…and we have plants to plant when ever I feel like planting in a drizzly rain….maybe today. So far we have two sunflower seedlings that may survive and a nice bunch of wild violets…Marigolds and Salvia will join them.
