|Yes, I'm sending you a message - this doesn't happen on its own..|
if it did, I don't think I would tell anyone.
Rain is gently falling in my part of the world. It is beautiful and I am thankful for the great job nature is doing watering my yard and garden.
I am a little disappointed that my wisteria never bloomed this year. It is the second spring here at my garden gate and still no blooms. Should I be worried?
|My garden gate - June 2012|
On the left side there is just a little reminder (that bit of green brown hanging on to the trellis) of the white clematis that bloomed in early spring. I had planned for the blue wisteria (left) to bloom around that time and the red peony (front right). This is the first spring for the peony, maybe, hopefully, next year they will bloom. Also, on the left side I have a few moon flower plants just starting to grow - there may be color (white) here by July...
I noticed that an Oak Gall (Oak Apple to some) has fallen. Landed on the sidewalk right in front of the door. It is a little early, and really firm.

brought it in the house to get a better picture of it.
(Yes, I did turn it this way to accent the "eye ball look.")
Usually they feel like dried out little puffs of nothing and leave dark brown spots all over the sidewalk and driveway, this one is like a little rubber ball or eye ball.
Yesterday there was thunder and lightning - it was beautiful. Today this soft rain with its cool temperatures seems slightly perfect.
I leave you now to go sit with a cup of coffee and just watch the rain.
