April Showers

As we enjoy a light rain and our first echoes of thunder of the season, it's probably a good time for an update.  Both work and weather have kept me out of the garden so far.  We have had a few nice days, but those hours have been spent doing spring cleanup, not planting.  About a week ago we noticed the first few bulbs popping up.  They are about 4 inches tall now.  I think the squirrels have done a number on them so we will pay attention to what is left and plant more this fall.

There is also either garlic or onions coming up in the raised beds.  Must have gotten missed last fall...oops!

What we have done is pick up some of the sticks that little the yard after the winter and put down some grass seed and fertilizer.  Our lawn has been in rough shape, so hopefully this will help it get back on track. 

We also spent a solid 3 hours putting together patio furniture yesterday...a good job done.  Now if it would only stop raining for a day so we could enjoy it!

Hopefully, as the saying goes, this next full week of rain showers will bring us some flowers.  The lilacs are starting to bud out (leaves that is).  Maybe we will have some greenery to look at soon.
