Here comes the rain again…

This is our forecast for today.  OH boy!  YAY.  Another day of rain.  Just what we need.  In the last 80 or so hours we have received 6 1/2 inches.  Enough already!  I need to get things planted. Oh I know, I know, 3 months from now I will be begging for rain.  This is just what Spring is like way down here.  Wet & fluctuating temperatures.  As soon as it warms up the first time we are tempted to get out  and plant something.  The fact that we can even consider it is insane!  We always have “the Easter cold snap” followed a couple of weeks later by what we always say is ” the last cold night, surely”. And by cold I mean in the 40’s.  If we would just wait a couple of weeks we wouldn’t be out covering things with milk jugs we have cut the ends out of!

A couple of days ago some one asked what these little pink flowers are.

I really don’t know!  I saw them at my local Wal-mart one day and had to have them.  I will see if I can find out.  Until then, if anyone knows ~ speak up!  They are lovely! The color and the delicate petals are just lovely.

That sounds YUMMY!
That rain yesterday was buckets without stopping. WoW!
You have a good day, it must be Italian food day in our little town, I am making a lasagna!
I will see you this week. Chelsea wants to give Rachel her birthday gift.

I asked what the flower was — then today I saw some rock cress and it looked similar. . . . so maybe that’s what it is? So delicate and beautiful.

Send some rain our way..we had a brush fire that burned 3 acres of our property..very scary..

April showers bring May flowers. That’s my April mantra. Great sounding pie!

They are called Mossy Rockfoil Touran Neon Rose Saxifraga Arendsil. I bought some and that was the whole name on the tag. It is a perennial. It is a pretty little flower.
