I swear, I could write a blog based only on the antics of our barn cats. What a crew we have right now... Beatrix X2, Moll, Phat Gus, Cheerio (orange cat that comes only to dine and get out of the weather), and last, but never least, Pete. Big Pete. He is so heavy, not fat, he is actually hard to lift! And Pete is everywhere. Seriously, everywhere you look... there is Pete. Yesterday morning, he was walking the top of my garden fence.
This boy cracks me up. He's special, for sure. But then, they all are!
Lots and lots of clouds rolled in yesterday morning... a harbinger of the rain we are scheduled to receive over the next few days.
We need rain badly. Normally, April is a very rainy month for us - but not this year.
If things warm up after this bout of rain, the garden will grow like gangbusters! I did want to show you how I am marking what is planted in the garden boxes this season.
We have a lot of these smooth river rocks around the farm. So I gathered some and spray painted them a lovely light lavender color and used a big sharpie to mark them.
