It has rained so much this spring that things are a little water logged here, and most of my plants in the deck planers have stopped growing. They are predicting warmer temperatures later this week and sunshine by the weekend. I hope so - I have a lot of potting up of plants to do.
It is so green and the woods are thick and lush- guess we can't have green without rain.
Saturday afternoon we had lunch on the deck - and then it started to rain
It rained so hard and so fast that even with the camera set on "action shot" it looked like this.
Heavy rain - while we sat under the deck umbrella and watched in amazement.
This is what is waiting for me - the new annuals that I bought this past week.
The Marigolds are Don's choices - childhood memories
Thinking that I would get them potted up in the deck railing planters
Waiting to go in the new hanging plant stand I got at a yard sale
Pretty two-color snapdragons - can you hear them singing? Gently pinch them at the base of the flower and they will happily sing for you. La-la-laaaaa-la-la
A delightfully spicy scented mini carnation
Even in the rain it was sweet smelling.

So when the rain stops and I can get out on the deck, these will be my new summer flowers. I can't wait!
