April showers have been doing an encore all week long, n the spring flowers are doing a good job of filling in the scenery with color.
None of these pics are my flowers, n I miss all the perennials I had at the old place, especially the purple Lilies of the Valley. I tried to bring some here in a pot, but they didn't make it through last year. I'm trying to get seedlings in my room big enough to move out doors without buying some already started. No seeds I planted outside are up at all yet.
Don't know why I'm still motivated to work on the plants. It's tough to be gone at work so much time n try to keep up with it. Really tho, I like the free food, being outdoors, n enjoy the beauty. Just wish I could get the critters not to mess with it. Maybe I should've been a farmer. But then the slugs n caterpillars would make me cry n lose money... I like when it starts producing n how it feels when you can't eat it all n start giving it away.
Work is going crazy with folks calling out all the time, n I have been getting a sore neck since returning last week. No idea why, because I'm doing it all the same. Maybe I should get new pillows. Sleep is definitely going to be lost more already.
Yep, I'm right back to feeling rushed around in my free time again. Several birthdays to get ready for have me cramming in extra errands n getting up n out earlier. There are folks to visit over the week-end, n expected family visitors from out of state to make time for all the upcoming month.
I really like these original color, mixed up- looking flower petals! Above is a close-up crop of this one.
I'm getting tired just thinking about all I'll be doing, better go n rest up after my walk home.
Oh yay, the sun just came out....
