Waiting on the weather…again


It’s been a rather slow week here. We’ve been getting April showers in May. The most exciting thing I did was go food shopping…and go to the dentist….and go to TJ Maxx where I got a little retail therapy in. We finally got some health insurance which eases my mind somewhat. Of course that’s an added expensive.

When I went out to get in the car to get the chip in my front tooth fixed I found this fella sunning himself:

We’ve been seeing a few of these garter snakes in the yard this year. I’ve also seen a bunny, which I prefer to see. Brian took this for me.

Our snowball bush is mighty bushy this year:

This is way too big as are most of our trees and shrubs. Here’s a Mt. St. Helen’s azalea we planted in place of the hedge:

It’s quite striking, isn’t it?

We have so much to do inside and out. We haven’t had a chance to go to The Home Depot for the new vanity and toilet I’d like to get too. We tend to drag our heels on things like that. I think if I had new things I’d revamp the bathroom decor! I sure know how to add glass tiles from doing them in the kitchen.

I think we’ll get busy with the gardens again tomorrow and Saturday. There’s always switching clothes from winter to summer too. That’s an involved job too!

  1. Did you cut down the snowball bush?

    The azalea is a very pretty color.

    I have been on the lookout for those snakes. I hate seeing them–I jump about a foot in the air everytime one slithers across my path!
