March is almost over. And April is right at the door step.
Yep! Every year when we grow vegetables, we have a little “Peter Rabbit” in our garden as well. I just looked through my photo files and got reminded that I still have these photos, I’ve captured five years ago. Little “Peter” hides out from the gardener (me). And when he thinks, he’s safe form the gardener and the cats, he explores the vegetable patch. 😀 😉
The last several weeks, it was very warm in North Texas. We had temperatures mostly in the mid to upper 90s. The forecast for the upcoming days don’t look any different either. But we’ve got a break, today. This morning we had a thunderstorm with much needed rain. And that storm cooled down the temps quite a bit. While I’m writing this blog, it’s only 71ºF. By the afternoon, we supposed to reach only mid 80s. Oh yes, I enjoy every little bit of it. Earlier in the morning, I planted more peppers in my home raised bed. Digging in the wet soil felt so good, again. A cottontail rabbit watched every move I made in the garden; in hope, I might give it some cabbage leaves for it to nipple in the yard. I’ve also noticed, that my jalapeño plants have more blooms, and my tomato plants are producing more ‘maters. That makes me feel good. After the rain, I captured photos of rain droplets in the garden and yard. 🙂
Kevin was bringing home Chinese Food for dinner. I had some chores to do around the house, didn’t feel like cooking and had the taste for Chinese cuisine, tonight. After we ate, the girls had to clean up the dishes, and sweep the floors.
In the meantime, Kevin and I could talk over a beer on the deck in the backyard. We watched Mrs. Rabbit nibbling on fresh green dandelion leaves; a hummingbird came over and looked for some delicious nectar; and we enjoyed a beautiful sunset, before we went back inside to see how far the girls came along with their chores. Katelynn and Sara were done and could go to have fun. Katelynn decided to draw another dinosaur, while Sara rode her bike to a friends house. Sometimes it is nice, when the house is quiet. 😉
