Spring has arrived here in Minnesota, finally. It has been a lot of cold, wet, and gray weather but the sun is now shining! Mom has been able to get the plants we need to brighten things up and the house is looking good. We had a huge storm Wednesday night with a lot of hail and it chipped our rain measuring tube which is sad, but we can still use it. This watering can always sits on the table and measures rain for us.
As Mom does every year, we put out our three bigger pots on our deck. These poor plants took a real beating in the storm too. Not only did we have a lot of hail but we had about two inches of rain in a short time, and up to 70 mph winds. I think the flowers will bounce back now that they have some warm sunshine to grow under. I bet next time I take a photo with these flowers, they will be huge!
We always love the geraniums on the front porch. They are somewhat sheltered, so they didn’t take a beating like the other flowers did. Now that spring has arrived, finally, we are all in better spirits and the whole world is looking much better! Next up, will be mowing the lawn as it is now starting to grow.
We are joining our friends at Living Laughing and Barking in Our Backyard is for their Nature Friday blog hop.
