Rainy Day

Waiting for Sprouts - Recycled Egg Carton

Rain today with nothing on the clothesline, so it is a good thing we accomplished yesterday what needed to be done outdoors. This included walks around the neighborhood, a bit of weeding in the garden, a stroll on over to the park (where Pip and Sprout climbed the jungle gym like little monkeys - my, they're getting old), mowing, edging, and seed planting.

Peony Compost

Incidentally, you may want to know (or not) how we control dandelions on our property. The answer is: Green Husband. No, he's not a product, he's my spouse, and he prowls around with a sharp tool and digs those flowers up by the roots. And that, my friends, is how we have a dandelion-free and chemical-free yard.

What is emerging in your flower garden?

Thank you, Dayna. I wish I could claim even an iota of credit for it. What is the name of that sharp stick like tool?! :)
