Great day in the Morning

I woke earlier to the sound of RAIN! The ground and our plants got a good half hour at least and boy! have we needed it here in Paradise. We often have heard the thunder all around us and even had a splatter or two of wet stuff but that is all. It has been like living in the Bermuda Triangle or something of a no rain zone. What we got early this morning will help lots.

The guys got the pad all poured for my arbor seat and the plants are all in along the sides and back. E has to get the pavers and put them into place and another section of the lower lawn is done. The humming bird feeder is up but not a birdie in site so far.

We were having a glass of wine after supper down on the lower lawn when out of the woods on the other side of the fence that separates us from the nature preserve dashed not one but two black snakes. They seemed to be chasing each other. I screeched and they took off. One came back but left really fast when I screeched again. Wonder if I am a snake caller in reverse. lol

Off to plan my day. Hope yours is a good one!

Oh snakes chasing each other - how exciting! We had a fox visit us the other night when we were at the cottage doing a little gardening. He just sat there at the end of the lawn and watched me and even stayed until I called Marcel to come look at him and then trotted off down the side of the lawn and off to wherever he was going.

Hey, will wonders never cease! I actually updated my blog with some pictures. Come and take a look!
