The Weather is Better!

This is such a huge country.  Somewhere there is still snow. It is pouring down rain and flooding in Florida and Colorado is burning.  Literally. The worst forest fires in history.  Oregon has been damp, a bit of lingering rain but pretty mellow by comparison.  A light coat in the mornings and shirt sleeves after noon.  Today it is not raining and the sun is pushing through a light layer of clouds.  The next ten day weather forecast is nice and for my up and coming art show, perfect!  No chance of rain and close to 80 degrees!

   I ran around my garden this morning and thought I would show you a few pictures. Despite the rain it is looking pretty healthy and with ten days of sunshine, maybe a real opening to summer, it should take off!  My corn is about a foot tall but with some sun it could still be "a foot high by the forth of July"!  My tomatoes should be taller but they have tomatoes on them.  They will shoot up with some warmer days ahead.

Oh Jerry, so glad your getting some nice weather.. OUr storms are gone and we had that beautiful Florida sunshine today.. Of course there is some damage from the storm ..
Your flowers are a profusion of color. I especially love that one with the purple petunias and the orange tiger lillies.. I'm going to try to put that together in a small painting.. I know you don't mind as I've asked your permission before. hugs, Barbra

Your garden is beautiful, Jerry. Wish we would get some of that rain. Can't wait to see some pics of your art show!

You are not only an artist but also an excellent gardener too. What can I say, I am speechless.
