rain delay...

this is as far as they got today but you can see it starting to take form...
rain should be out of here by midnight, so they will be back tomorrow...

our peonies...
the drought has been hard on many things...

we will dead head these this weekend...
no amount of rain will help now...

there are many buds that never got the chance to open...
expected rainfall is only 1/2 and inch...
could use a lot more, but we will take what we can get...

I can't believe this week is almost up...
have no clue where it has gone...

it has really cooled down here...
55 this morning and the highs in the mid 60s...
had to dig in the closet for long sleeves this morning...
sure has been a weird year...
well, got things to get caught up on and DH will be home in a bit...
more later...

You have the same weather there that we do here, Tete. It was downright chilly this morning. Your porch is looking wonderful so far. I like that it is going the long way- I think it will be more usable that way. I didn't know that you were putting a roof over it-assumed it was an open deck. You will love it!

I worked outside all day and got the playhouse scrubbed clean top to bottom. I need to work on the kids' "yard and fence" next. Maybe later today.

Hope you have a good night- xo Diana

Oh, your poor peonies, Tete. :( We needed rain desperately here, too - and received a good inch of it the past couple days...with 50 degree temps! Yikes! But at least our gardens are happy again! :) Weird weather, is right! lol!
