It’s raining again,

and there are no grandkids playing outside today.

There is, however, plenty of ‘pink mulch’ as my granddaughter calls it falling from their favorite tree – Ornamental Crab Apple.

This giant umbrella-like tree provides them a place where they can use their imagination, and we can hear their laughter as they play. There are tree swings, climbing possibilities, fairy houses, toad houses, and a nice shady place where they proudly display their Certified Wildlife Habitat and Monarch Watch signs.

Yesterday, we gardened, painted outside furniture, played some hoops, and stopped along the way to make bows and arrows. You never can tell what we’ll be up to tomorrow “if” it stops raining.
