After all the rains, this is what is blooming this week. This plant has hundreds of buds. Last year it only had a few.

Lovely pictures!
I have been enjoying my Lilac that bloomed for the first time since I got it 3 years ago, my spanish Lavender, pansies & all the perennial groundcovers like Lobelia & Rock soapwort that have been blooming all winter long. And of course we cannot forget the alyssum that is a year around pleaser.
I just wish it would stop raining so I could go back out & play. :~(

Well you could come to my house and make LOTS of mudpies. I am also very very very tired of the rain. :(

Yes, there is no shortage of mud here either. I cannot believe how saturated everything is. Just nowhere for it all to go. I think I have lost at least one of my abutilon trees that have been in my front beds for years. Very depressing.

Me too. My backyard is just so wet. It won't soak in anymore. We really need some sun!!

I just love all your pictures Gourd. Sounds like your yard loved all the rain.

Living on a steep hillside does have its advantages. The rocky soil dries out pretty fast and the sandy soil even faster. By tomorrow if it does not rain today it will be workable. A few areas will compress a little if you were to walk on them but everything else will be firm.

Chilidawg, what great pictures.. love your name too.

Thanks everyone, will try to give you a tour of the back yard from wet to dry..lol Still alot of weeds back there. this is just a photo to give you an idea of how much water comes into this area (five times these past couple of months)... still wet and it dries just enough to get some work done, then it rains again.


well, I am having trouble posting photos, will try again later.

This is the amount of water that has been coming into this area. Sorry if these photos are repeats, I posted them on another forum.

This is the path going towards the arbor. This area was full of water and all the bark/mulch floated away. This is fresh stuff. I have daylillies lining the pathway, but it was when I started gardending that I put them in and did not know they needed full sun.. oh well. I still do alot of dumb things.
