Today is supposed to rain. All we've gotten is wind and a few drops. >_< Fortunately there are more chances over the next few days, but it's still frustrating.

Morning glories are beginning to bloom in the barrel garden!  \o/  Next to it is a firecracker plant.

Petunias are blooming.  This is before the storm knocked over all the pots.  Again.  I had to put them back together. Again.  >_<

Barn swallows are nesting under the open porch over the patio.  :D 3q3q3q!!!  I am so excited.  We used to have them all the time when I was little, but I haven't seen any in ages.  When it comes to eating bugs, they are like little vacuum cleaners with wings.  I actually recognized them from the flight pattern: the bird flew out from under the porch high overhead, so I knew to look up and see where she had come from.  This is where.  \o/
