Ok… I may be exaggerating a little bit. But it was driving rain on and off all day. Mostly on. I was so determined to push on with my greenhouse build that I even dressed like an ocean going fisherman in big thick wet weather gear, but it was too cumbersome and combined with the wet and the mud it was impossible.
So I tried working between the drops – watching from the dry side of a window, I would race out in the brief breaks between the rain and lay a paver. I laid four before I gave up on that plan. Then I decided to do an inside project. I started work on a job that once you start you can’t stop until you are finished and guess what happened. It stopped raining the whole time I was doing my project. A whole two hours! The sun even started to shine! I watched from the window in frustration. Guess what happened the moment I stopped… The rain started again! Oh my goodness. We have hardly any rain for months and the moment I want to do an outside project I’m completely thwarted!
So filled with frustration and hope that things will improve – I shall figure something out… Maybe Hubby the Un-Gardener will set up a gazebo over my project if I ask him really nicely. I really need to do something – the plants on my windowsills are getting desperate and spring is in two days!
Come again soon – hopefully I wouldn’t have gone crazy from sheer frustration!
