Mother Nature Has a Sense of Humor....
I posted earlier today in my excitement that it was finally a sunny day. It was even sunny at 4:00! (Mother Nature loves to blow in a rain shower at 3:55 because she knows I will be making a mad dash to my car to get home to my gardens.) Unfortunately, we had a fashion emergency in our household... my teenage daughter has to dress up to present for her final exam tomorrow (classic teenage planning ahead move... 5 minutes ahead that is. Anyone out there with a teen will completely understand). After inhaling a quick dinner (thank you hubby!), we sprinted to the stores (literally 1 minute from where I work. How cruel is that?!?) In record time we found everything she needed, walked out of the store to a black sky. Before we even made it out of the parking lot, downpour. HaHa Mother Nature, aren't you hilarious. I think she read my blog post earlier, saw how overconfidant I was about the sunshine and decided to teach me a lesson. (Some days it's all you can do not to give her the 'You're #1!' hand signal). She was kind enough to stop the rain by the time we got home so I could run out and get some shots for Bloomin' Tuesday. I just discovered Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day so will join in there also. Again, the mosquitos were ferocious. When I finished, I made a quick call to the Red Cross to see if they could set up an emergency blood drive for me.
And the Garden Tour begins now!
