Quote of the Day: Truman Capote

April 10th, 2011

In my garden, after a rainfall, you can faintly,
yes, hear the breaking of new blooms.

Truman Capote

We’ve been having a tons of rain here at Chiot’s Run, April showers is a bit of an understatement! We’ve been having so much rain that I haven’t plants peas or potatoes in the garden, it’s simply too wet. They would rot and never show their little faces.

At least all this rain is supposed to bring beautiful flowers. I’m also appreciating that all this rain has been giving me the time to dig up all those saplings to clear that new lot for the garden.

Have you been getting April Showers in your neck of the woods?
