Sow What…..and other ramblings.

a journal of a garden and whatever crosses my mind

Nice work, if you can get it.

It has been one of those lazy, icky days. Storms, clouds, and now more rain. I have spent most of the day on the computer, goofing off on the last day of my three-day weekend. I worked Memorial Day, so Friday was my holiday.
simonThis has been Simon’s morning, afternoon, and most likely, his evening. Life could not possibly get much better for this spoiled, indoor cat. He gets all the food and petting he wants, but mostly, he gets to sleep in a warm house during the torrential downpour, which was accompanied by high winds. He barely noticed the storm.

cardinalThis poor little guy knows about the storm. The birds came in droves, hungry and bedraggled after the rain stopped.

So far, we seem to be getting just the right ratio of rain and sun to take care of the garden. We have hardly had to water lately. The tomato plants are growing like crazy, loving the new Black Gold mulch that we planted them in this year. The plants are growing so fast that we have barely managed to keep them staked. The new perennials I planted in the place of the ugly evergreen bushes are looking great.

Some of the natives that I planted in the back yard are starting to look quite at home. Several of them are actually spreading, so hopefully, they will displace some of the weeds by next year. This pale purple coneflower is one of the first of the new natives to bloom.

I see that Simon is awake now, and watching the rain. If even Simon has stirred from his cardboard box of slothfullness, I should probably go and be productive also.
