Today is the 4th day of rain in North Iowa – nothing like the Carolinas, don’t get me wrong but 3-6″ of rain is not normal for us. I have moved tender succulents into the garage and playhouse to keep them from drowning.
The temperature is going to be almost 90 today with a 40 mph southwest wind but…..then a cold front is coming through and by tomorrow morning it’s going to be down to 41 degrees.
These plants are soaked with rain water and can’t possibly dry out completely today.
Here are the south facing areas in the house awaiting these plants.
I did not take time to “stage” these areas but the next pictures I take will show rooms of plants so bear with me. I have a huge day of work today from taking Reed’s pumpkins to Junkin Gal, practice with Margaret at church, a doctor appointment and pepper jelly to make (this may have to take a back seat to moving plants).
Tonight will be it’s own reward as friends from church are coming to sew! I really want more time to sew – I bet I’m not alone, am I? If you love to sew/quilt, it’s a hobby that one can take up in any small amount of time. And the planning is the best part!
At chores yesterday I locked the three amigoes in their pen – knowing the rain was coming.
