Another grey day,

But it’s really OK. There’s lots to be done in the house. Sometimes I’m not sure what I accomplish, but before you know it the evening is here! Time does fly. As I was walking through the kitchen this afternoon I looked out the window in the door. A wild turkey was walking across the middle of my garden! Naturally it was gone by the time I got my camera and got outside.

When the sun does come back and the ground dries out not only does the garden need to be tilled again and planted.  And the grass really, really, really needs mowing!

Rain, rain, go away…

On Saturday the garden was plowed and tilled – it is gorgeous:

Now, if it’d just stop raining so I could get planting!!

 

UPDATE!  I’d planned on putting some plants in yesterday, and since they’d been soaking since Sunday I decided to go ahead and get them in the earth.  So, down the left side (as you look in this photo), there are now 10 lavender plants, 4 boxwoods and 5 two-inch roses.  Keep your fingers crossed!

This morning I saw this little guy out in the yard.  I took a couple of photos and then every so often I’d take a few steps closer and take a couple more.  He let me get to about 10′ from him, snap a couple of shots and then he took off into the woods.

And then this afternoon Mr. UPS delivered my new lens:

You can see the first photo taken with this lens here.  It’s straight out of the camera with no post-processing!  I am going to love this lens!!
