When it rained, we cleaned out the garage. No pretty pictures there, just lots of dirt and stuff to be cleaned up and put away and reorganized. That's where we hosted our garden group this morning while we worked on a project.
When it wasn't raining, we worked outside in the yard, trimming and planting and sweeping and finally, edging. Now it's all looking quite spiffy.
Tom worked up another garden box and planted lettuce. Sweet peas are also planted.
The first trillium to emerge have already gone pink. Others are just now opening pure white.
May Apple and Mouse Plant.
Fragrant Viburnum burkwoodii
Japanese maples are flowering.
We've also had a house guest this week. Irene has been sick with the same virus that caused Isaac to develop pneumonia two weeks ago. We had her here Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Jill stayed home and took her to the doctor on Thursday.
Fortunately an x-ray showed no lung involvement and today she announced that she feels "so much better!" We have the kids again today while Jill plays in the mountains again with the Mountaineers.
And then it will be an early night to bed. We're tired.
