Persistent Precipitation...

... can you hear it ??

Listen- there is a soft sound outside that I have heard for so long- enough for it to be almost unnoticeable.
Rain.
Showers-Sprinkles-Deluging (is that a word ?)-Spattering-Drizzling-Sloshing-Plopping...

This is the four day forecast---



 I recall just a scant couple of weeks ago- there was S.U.N.
Outside to sit and have coffee. Putter around getting Much Needed chores done...

This sweet Rocker was found on Craig*list...




Thought about a nice even coating of Spray Paint...




But instead I fashioned a Cushy seat cushion... Then a Sage Stripe back-pad...




It was a 'Special Project" so Shirley would have her- very very own- rocker !! She looks like she is enjoying herself too !!
So now when she pops across the road for a visit-Her ownly own Rocker-- I Teased her saying I was going to put her name on it... I do believe she was thinking about it !!




The Chestnut- also known as a Candelabra tree 'cause of the Blossoms turning up- was Blooming to beat the band...



A Jazzy new Cushion for my Rocker. Instead of a Cushion for the back--- I remembered that there was a Quilt in a big Camel-backed Trunk... My Mama bought it for me back when I was 16 or so.
As we All do from Time to Time- I was 'Saving It For Nice'.
Oh Ho !!
When is "Nice" going to Happen ??
Ptooey on having it packed Away - Unseen & Unappreciated...

So It rests across the Rocker back. Every-time I go out on the Porch or Sit and Rock for a Spell--- I can Admire it and Think of my Mama !!




My bed of Sword Ferns - transplanted there over 30 years ago- were Loving that Sun. New baby Stalks Growing and Unfurling so Gently.




My Kwan Yin out and Bearing her Serenity and Shadows...
She makes me Happy when I look at her...




The Blue-Jays squawking and begging... This beauty was keeping a beady eye on Kuchi...




...and Kuchi was certainly More than Interested in that Blue Feathered Attractive Wingy thingy !!




The warm Curly shadow of the Metal Gate Panel- purchased to put in the Doorway...




Babylon pausing in mid turn-around...



Alice working on getting her Bum Furs Warm...






Beautiful Tulips. Wish they lasted Longer...




Ferns and a bit of the grass out Front.






When the Wind gets Gusty- the Chestnut blossoms Blow and Flutter about like Snow-




The first of my Wild Roses...






And a Delightful Taste of Spring...   Oven Roasted Snapping Fresh and Crunchy Asparagus !!!




This is the Month of May weather-wise... Damp looking isn't it ?





The Sun will return Eventually...
Then I will be Grumping & Grousing about the Too Warm temperatures...
But for Today...



Drip
Dripp
Drippp...
