A Walk in the Rain

A rainy afternoon, so I went for a short walk. The golden chain tree was in bloom and I was afraid that the rain would knock all the flowers of before I could enjoy them.

 Molly was happy to be out, she loves water and rain is as good as going to the pond. as long as she's wet she's happy. The beagles were barking to go in.  Blue would rather sprawl out on the couch with Bella.

I stopped by the nursery to see how some of the baby grape vines I started, in the greenhouse, this winter are doing after transplanting them outdoors. looks like they are off to a good start. Two more years I should see some grapes from them.

Yes, there are weeds. They help keep the roots from drying out. When they become a nuisance I'll cultivate them in for some added compost.
Blue is annoyed. enough with the plants lets go inside.


  1. Love your golden chain tree! Your transplanted grape vines look like they are doing quite well! Things can look so fresh in the rain!

  2. Nothing like a good walk in the rain to clear the mind and spirit. What a beautiful tree. Isn't spring such a lovely time of the year? :)

  3. Everything is looking so green and lush. Our yellow dog wallowed in a stinky pond this morning, the beagle stays well away from any water, she hates it. Mind you by the time we get home she is covered in mud where he has jumped all over her!
