We had been watching the weather forecast, because part of this trip involves going to the Skagit Valley for the Tulip Festival, and it is not a fun activity in the rain. While sun seemed to be a distant hope, Not Rain was expected by Wednesday, so we decided to come to the cabin and get the work done there first.
Crossing the sound on the ferry, we were swallowed up by the Big Gray.
Fortunately we had good leftovers for dinner, from the birthday celebration the day before.
Tuesday morning - Surprise! It was not raining, and there was some sun and blue sky!
We were out and working by 9:30. A rain squall blew in just as we were stopping for lunch at 1:00. Good timing. We were back out by 2:00 to finish the job, wrapping up about 3:30. Whew. Lots of crawling and bending and stooping. We'll feel it tomorrow. But we'll be playing all day in the tulips, so we'll manage.
So here is the cabin garden at Tulip Time.
Tom finished cleaning up the feather grasses. Now it all looks spiffy again.
Solid gray has now taken over the sky again, and there was a smattering of rain as we finished up. But we got it done!
Tomorrow we will play. Thursday we have a bit more to do here before we head home. We have things to get done there too.
