Hope you've had more rain since, Pam.  How I wish I could send you some
from here. We had one nice sunny day last week. The rest of the time
has been deeply overcast if not raining.  It's been raining off and on 
since Saturday and shows no sign of letting up.  Predictions are for
this to go on all week.  It's not cold - just chilly - 50s and low 60s - 
but that's notthe sort of weather I want to take these achy old bones
out in.  I have put my hanging pots of cherry tomatoes in the 
breezeway, and set out a few annuals between showers.  Still 
too much to do.  Oh well, if it doesn't get done, it won't get done.'
My back so-called lawn is a total flower-bed right now.  The purple
ajuga has invaded the lower part and is a thick blanket of flowers.
The upper part is thicker with white violets than I have ever seen it.
It will have to be mowed sooner or later, but I hate to do it until after
the flowers have bloomed.  We don't try to grow grass - the annual
grass that self-sows does pretty well.  We don't fertilize or treat
with any chemicals because it all just runs down into the pond,
which is higher than usual - over half the lower lawn this spring.
This is the wettest spring in years.  Wish I could share it with Pam.
