Bloomin' Tuesday

We've been getting steady rain.
It's like the Florida from days of old.
You won't hear one complaint from me!

So much for solarizing, eh?
Not to worry, rain chances are decreasing
as the week progresses.

a new mystery plant

It made itself at home among the zinnias
and has delicate pink blooms on it around May.

Here's the Maple Hill Mascot,
just hangin' around.

Have a lovely day, y'all!


  1. Things are looking great at Maple Hill, Daisy! You definitely have a talent for gardening. Beautiful flowers!

    1. Thanks for the kind words. I just know it feels right to be out there with them. Enjoy your day!

  2. Glad you are getting rain, garden is looking very lush...... feel free to send some of the rain my way..

  3. Beautiful flowers Daisy! I bet your plants are just soaking up that rain :)

  4. Rain, glorious rain. I am sure it is welcome. I love your variety of plants in your garden. They look so nice after the rain. I like tour garden mascot too.

  5. So happy the rain is falling again. And not 10 inches an hour.

  6. We are back and forth with the rain here in North Florida... afternoon thunderboomers most days... your mascot(s) are featured on my blog today too, they were chewing my big blade plants like lilies and such...

  7. Great news on the rain! Now, if you're done hogging it all..............

  8. Looks like your plants all love the rain :) We had rain last week here every evening. I thought it was wonderful but heard several people fussing they were tired of it. And now this week no rain at all and wishing we had it. You won't hear me fussing about it either :)

    1. There's nothing like the rain to keep things happy around the garden.

  9. Love the mascot! :-) Hooray for the rain! We were pummeled with it yesterday and I was thrilled.


Thanks for taking the time to leave your thoughts!
