Over the past couple of weeks, we've seen quite a few rainy days here in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area. Although it seems like it's rained every other day, we're still down for what we actually need. But, the good news is our rainy season here in Oklahoma still has a couple more weeks to go.
The rain is fantastic for my flowers and vegetable garden, but not so conducive to my swimming lesson's schedule. Yesterday, we had overcast skies, a few light sprinkles (which came around our lessons) and temperatures were only in the mid 60's. By the time I was finished with three hours of lessons, my nail beds were numb I was so cold. Most popular phrase for the day, "Mrs Jjjjjjody...I'm cccoooold!!"
Rainy days---not so great for putting children in the water, but my flowers, squash, tomatoes and peppers are loving it!
My lilies finally bloomed this week. Such gorgeous, elegant flowers. This particular plant was a gift (in a decorative foil lined pot) from my son-in-laws mother for having them over last Easter. I planted it in the front bed and can enjoy it each spring now.
Can you spot the zucchini? I'm going to make a zucchini cake with cream cheese cinnamon frosting for Father's Day this weekend. I'll post the recipe and how-to~
Lots of rain, lots, and lots of squash!
