More rain, more greenery, 

While playing tag with my grandchildren I stopped to take a photo of these lush trees with my easy to use digital camera

more rain, more puddles (or worse – we now have "lakes" where cement used to stand)

Water water everywhere-but the Sandwich Generation granny nanny and grandkids do not despair - we just play tag around the puddles

more rain, more lichen and moss on the trees and ants on the trees and in the houses (I think they're getting flooded out of their homes too!)

e handy for snapping this photo but I could not get a close up of the ant crawling on the tree

more rain,  more flowers.

I love these gorgeous red geraniums - perfect for senior gardening

It's definitely a case of MORE for the month of May including MESSES, thanks to all the mud. 

Muddy boots come in very handy for outside activities for grandparents and their grandchildren

My Claritan is working overtime but it's WORKING, and I'm so blessed to have it. Between granddogs, pollen, and spores, I'd be in the middle of a horrible sinus infection right now without it, I must say!

Wonderfully surrounded by gorgeous greenery - cute granddogs - and lovely flowers- this Sandwich Generation granny nanny REALLY appreciates Claritan

I got to do granny nanny duty for soccer this weekend, and we even had rain throughout most of the game. But they played on, like the troupers they are, and had a great time, as did I, even if it did feel more like duck weather than grandma weather. 

This Sandwich Generation granny nanny thinks there is so much rain I need to be like this duck and umbrella clipart this year

โ€จAll in all, the weather is not holding us back, and the ground is nice and soft. My senior mom started gardening inside the garage, including planting sunflower seeds and other plants with the grandboys a couple of weeks ago and the minute the weatherman gives the "A-OK" for gardening, she'll be happy as a clam pulling her garden wagons out full of the pots and LEAVING them outside! How about you? How's your weather? How's your senior, boomer, and/or grandkid gardening going? ๐Ÿ™‚

My senior mom loves to use a garden wagon to hold her plants - its a frugal raised beds flower and vegetable garden

P.S. I have so much fun taking photos of grandkids, boomer & senior gardening projects, and lovely flowers – red, pink, white and more – all thanks to an easy to use digital camera, plus the handy dandy tips from My 3 Boybarians on Sweet Shot Tuesday. Do check it out. And for more lovely reds, from vintage to new and floral in between, enjoy Rednesday. ๐Ÿ™‚

    GOING FOR THE RED

    โ€œIf forced to make choices,โ€ she said,
    โ€œIโ€™d go for the crimson and red.
    Iโ€™d let go of green,
    (Some think itโ€™s obscene),
    Embracing magenta instead.โ€

  • Rain is a drag, definitely! But, like your mom, I start seeds indoors, too! There’s an old saying that goes something like – God made rain so gardeners will have time to do their housework!

  • LOL LOL LOL TOOO funny Sue! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll have to pass that on to my senior mom when she isn’t gardening due to rain – like TODAY! ๐Ÿ™‚ She’ll get a laugh out of it as well. Thanks for popping by ๐Ÿ™‚
