rainy days, cotyledons, and creativity...
A little rain finally found its way to our corner of the country. I wasn't surprised to learn that this winter has been the second driest/warmest here in the Pacific NW since the 1930s. There is literally zero snow in the Cascades below about 4500' which will make for low streams and rivers come this summer. Guess it's time to install a few rain barrels... I just love that first picture as it so represents the feeling of the view from my front porch on a cloudy, rainy day. Peace. Calm. Quiet. I love it.
The kids have been diligent in their preparations for next month's recitals. They work so hard and never cease to amaze me, as I have virtually no musical talent. What a gift to hear them play...I will miss it when they are grown. Sigh.
Lettuces have sprouted! The lilac I thought was dead is showing signs that it, in fact, is not! A spider shared her creativity with us by leaving her web on the front porch! And I have spent every spare moment working on Linnea's Swan. :)
More rain is forecast for this weekend, in fact, over an inch which is so needed. After that, the weatherlady is calling for more unseasonably warm, sunny days next week. Crazy!
