It has been raining and raining and today was our first nice day. I managed to get a bit of a sunburn on my face, sitting out on the deck visiting my friend Megan.  I have needed to mow the lawn for ages and got it half done when something went wrong with the mower. I'll have to call my dad and get him to have a look.  The buds are coming up on the lilacs and the peonies are doing great.
I made a butterfly stepping stone with a mold my friend Lorrie gave me. I'm going to make more once I remember to get some more glass bits and marbles.
 The sweet peas I planted are coming up a bit sparse so I think maybe one of the packets was a dud so I planted a few new ones in the open spaces.
Not all of my seedlings made it so I have a had to buy a few things from the garden center. I was unsuccessful with the basil, parsley and the chives are not doing as well as they were. It could be they are just drowning so with any luck we will have more dry sunny weather now.

  1. Hi what a beautiful blog. I love gardening too although ours is very small - You are so lucky to have peonies they are gorgeous - I have one that is fighting to survive against flying balls!
