    Good evening everyone.  We got another little shower this afternoon…3 10ths again….but it is adding up and certainly making the plants respond.

    After work I went and got my friend from the hospital.  She insisted that she wanted to be alone tonight even though I do not know if that is good.  I had to go into the house and get a walker for her to make it to the house.  I told her that I would stay and she didn’t want me there.  She has always been a person that likes her alone time, so I respected her request.

    I just realized that I washed my bedding this morning and I haven’t made my bed yet….I’d better get that done ASAP or I will be sorry in a few minutes.  Larry was sleeping very early since he had a late night last night…..yay….I am in charge of the remote….lol.

    I did read about everyone’s day, but no time to comment…..but I think I need to fill my hummingbird feeder in the near future….they should be here in a couple of weeks.  See you all in the morning….Kathy…hope you get some rain tonight!  Charlene

    I think I will grab something quick like ring bologna with the potatoes/carrots/celery leftover from last night.  Charlene

    Melissa…we certainly are loving this early Spring, aren’t we?  I can see that is a lot more than just weather that happened to that area between April and May….it involved a Midwest gal getting out and enjoying doing some earlier than normal Spring clean up….looks great!  lol  Charlene

    How cool is that?  I love cordless tools…I just might have to check this out the next time I am at the Orange store…of course, other stores may carry it as well.  Shoot…too late to add it to my Mother’s Day list….lol.  Charlene

    Ditto to that!  I have my siggy for a reason….it is a refrigerator magnet that Molly gave me the 1st time we met back in 2009….and it is SO true!  Charlene

    Have fun at the beach!  I know what you mean about worrying about someone else caring for your babies.  We have so many containers and other areas that I water, I am embarrassed to ask someone to do it for us when we go somewhere…consequently, we don’t travel very often…..lol.  Charlene

    I didn’t see this post this morning…and now I know why…it was posted after I went to work.

    Julie…I see signs of Spring at your house…and I am sure the rain you did get will promote even more growth and green.  Charlene

    Sandy…believe me, I’d love to take care of that park, but it was donated to the city last year and they have different ideas than I do about what makes it pretty…plus, my plate is pretty full right now, so I sure don’t need another job…lol.

    I think I will find a different location…got one in mind….stay tuned to my “new” change of seasons location.  Charlene

    More beautiful iris, Vickie!  Your yard must be gorgeous right now.

    Steve….sorry about the lack of cooperation from Shutterfly.

    Snow….you’ve got some beautiful tulips there!  I love the one that turns colors…is that some kind of parrot tulip?

    Julie…sure looks like Spring has sprung at your house….don’t you love it?

    Mary…that is a pretty iris.

    Kelly….I only have a few glads planted…the rest are in the fridge in the basement, so it will be a while before I see glad blooms…yours is beautiful.

    Tulips for me…but they aren’t as unique as Snowwolfs are.

    This bed has tulips right now and iris later.  Steve…there is a dandelion in this pic…see if you can find it…lol

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    The reddish ones in this bed are actually a maroon, but hard to capture their true color….the other ones look white, but they are actually lime green

    They are so bright and cheery in the Spring!  Lovely…..there is one in DS’s grove…maybe I should try to rescue it.  Charlene

    I am back.  It is foggy this morning, but promises of a nice day later.  I think we also are supposed to reach temps in the 70s.  Not sure what our total rain fall was, but it came slow and every drop soaked in….a very welcome rain.

    Larry got home around 11 pm last night.  They did admit our friend in the hospital.  Thank goodness it is the hospital 45 minutes from here rather than the main hospital 2 hrs from here. It was very foggy last night, so that would have been a horrible drive for him.  If they get her hydrated and feeling better she will be released today.  I guess I will have to close shop and go and pick her up.  I hope she is able to stay alone.

    Melissa….you really worked like a little beaver to get that job done…and it looks great.  Sorry about your finger…with my job, my hands are always getting smashed or cut, so I know how miserable it can be.  Get some rest at work…lol

    So…I will go to work in my shop and then see what the day brings.  Have a great day everyone.  Charlene

    Sandy…that is a lot of work you’ve gotten done and even more to do.  I think you will like your raised beds.  Do you have to haul the dirt in to fill them…and if so, how do you do that?

    Looking great…certainly will make less mowing for you if you have 16 of them.  Charlene

    I am so impressed, Melissa.  That was a lot of work to do, but I am sure you are glad that it is done.  Now you have the fun of planting and enjoying the flowers…and you can check that off your to do list.

    Sorry about your finger, though.  I hope it feels better this morning…probably pounded all night…they usually do.  I am hoping that you got some sleep because a work out like you got creating this bed makes a person tired for sure.  Glad you shared pics.  Charlene
