Gardening in the rain

Spent all day yesterday gardening in the rain.  The time flew by. 

Eight hours of transplanting, planting, poking seeds into the wet soil, plucking weeds, potting.  Actually, it is great weather for those garden chores, it saves getting the hose.  Even the tender ephemerals don't seem to mind a move in those conditions.

Today I am feeling a little stiff, so I'm taking it easy, watching the birds and drinking in the verdant green.

Wow!  All this growth in two weeks....

Foam flower, hellebore and blood root
Blood root, violets, trillium... maple seeds everywhere.
