Rain, Rain, Go Away!

It’s been raining here for 7 days straight and the forecast is predicting more rain! I feel like I’m missing out on my tulips and lilacs and flowering trees. The rain is making all the flowers fall off the trees.

The cat has been sitting at the window wanting to go out and I have to work extra hard to come up with stuff to entertain Francis since he can’t go outside to play. He did have a soccer game in the rain on Tuesday though!

My plan for tomorrow was to take the day off to plant some flowers. I guess I will have to cancel those plans. There is nothing like coming in to work on a planned day off! Oh well, I will save it for a sunny day!

Here is a picture of the tree in front of my house – I’m not sure what kind of tree it is but it sure makes pretty flowers! Also, here is the mess the tree makes - I actually think it looks lovely!

Wow, very pretty! I'm impressed you've got that many blooms on the tree at this time of year. Must be the lack of rain in Texas that our's are not blooming with flowers.

That is a beautiful flowering tree! I took some pretty shots of the ones in my neighbourhood. But they don't last long and make a mess.

Oh well, they say "You must suffer for Beauty". I guess that involves sweepin too!

Keep smilin!

Did someone said Lilac? i just love that smell it makes when you cut them and bring them inside. Funny, I also had planned to take off tomorrow for the same reason, bummer! Forecast for tomorrow is 100% chance of rain. Now i am thinking of plan B, i.e. buying my plants tonight before all the choices are taking...
