Alternate title: helicopter hell!
It seems they run in cycles. The past two years have been oh so under control. This year? Pure insanity. Look at this mess!
If you think I'm dramatic, you should hear my husband complain. Albeit whilst he cleans out the gutters, pulls weeds while on business calls, and scoops large shovels full of helicopters filling large bag after bag.
I just wanted to preface these graduation party day pics with the helicopter story so that you understand the intensity of having a graduation party on the patio during the month of May.
And now, I'll cheer up...
My baby graduated from high school!
My pots are planted!
The grass is mowed!
Love the begonias in the flower beds!
The cushions and pillows are out!
It stopped raining!
I swear if I hadn't had a graduation party to prepare for, all the cushions and pillows would still be in the basement. No flowers would be planted, and the dead boxwoods would still be in the pots on the patio. Because it has rained. It definitely feels like it has rained every single day, nonstop, for the past 6 months. I will admit my imagination has been associated with exaggeration on occasion. The good news is rain = green. An exceptional and otherworldly kind of green. My very favorite part of spring and summer is green.
It stopped raining for the graduation on Saturday and the graduation party on Sunday. I honestly don't care if it rains every single day for the rest of the summer. (That was a sarcastic joke, Mother Nature...)
Welcome to June.
