We arrived Monday a little before noon. It was raining lightly. We moved in, had lunch, and took a little walk on the beach road. And then the rain got serious.
We had to enjoy the garden in the rain. There would be no gardening. We did enjoy a slow, restful afternoon and evening, and got some reading and some napping done.
The tulips are done, and now begins columbine time in the sandy cabin garden.
This Pacific coast iris is surviving the sand and the summer drought.
Columbine seeds freely, and they cross pollinate, so you never know what you'll get in flower form and color.
Of course they were all bowing their heads in the rain.
Tuesday morning the rain continued, so we visited an antique mall in Freeland. By then the rain was letting up. We stopped at the Bayview Nursery because it was time for the golden chain tree arbor to come into bloom.
This nursery has just recently been up scaled, and they have set off this old laburnum walk beautifully.
The hen was with her chicks. :-)
We don't need any more plants, but it's always fun to look.
I'll take two of those and five of those, and .........
Into the greenhouse.
So much cool stuff here!
We planned to leave by 2:00, and so we did, but of course, by then the sky was clearing.
But of course, we'll be back.
