After the Rain
I woke up during the night and heard the gentle rain. I love that soothing sound, and knowing that my garden needed a good drink made me welcome it even more. The Morden Blush roses, bellflowers and astilbes certainly look refreshed.
Mind you, the garden needs more than rain. Yesterday, I weeded, mulched and cut back things that had gotten out of control. More to do, I confess. I need to develop some kind of garden-grooming routine. Feel free to pass on any tips that work for you. I've been browsing some of your beautiful blogs, so I know you've developed some very good habits!
Today, my little house needs some attention. Things are scattered about, which makes me feel a bit scattered. But first, a quick morning look at the garden gave me pleasure; I hope it gives you some, as well.
