Still having problems and lots of rain.

Well I can do new posts and check my blog but can't see anyone else's blog I not being rude by not commenting, maybe better in a few days or I've done something to cause this I just don't know, we shall see.
Lot's of rain here again these little blokes are all over the place wish they were mushrooms.
 I took a photo of this guy but never realised what a huge double chin he had but he is a happy chappie.

 At least I don't have to clean the chairs the rain keeps them nice.


 My lime tree is a mass of these tiny little buds, same as last year but this is very early, I got two limes last year hoping for three this year.
 This tree is doing well wish I knew what it is.
  The jasmine is just starting to bud everything is so early hoping for a early spring like me.

  1. The gnome's chin looks like a flesh coloured scarf around his neck.

    1. I could paint it a different colour then he wouldn't look so fat.

  2. You are getting much more rain than we are. A surprising number of things are out up here too. I don't mind an early spring - so long as summer doesn't push her way in.

    1. Yes a long spring would be nice but a long summer that's not so good.

  3. I haven't noticed any jasmine budding here yet, thank goodness, but I did notice plenty of buds on my freesias, there were none two days ago :)
    We've had a good share of rain too, it's nice to see everything washed clean.
    I hope you find all our blogs again soon. Can you get to us by clicking on the name at our comments?

    1. Some early blooms but they do not look as big to me.
      I was thinking of doing a scarf with spots on it.

  9. Your garden is looking beautiful after the rain. My irises are blooming already which is very unusual. Hope we have a mild spring and summer this year.

  10. It has been so dry here this year. I wish we had gotten the spring rain. A lot of my perennials were shorter than usual. I've been out there watering practically every night. Enjoy your lime tree Merle.

    1. We must have got your rain, but we are just coming into spring but I have a feeling this year the summer will be hot and long.

  11. Hi Merle, computer problems are frustrating....the rain is keeping everything looking fresh and green ( and clean ) and gives you an excuse to stay cozy inside. You'll have to make something special with those limes this year - mojitos sound good to me :)

  12. Oh, the rain is making your garden green, Merle. You know, Jasmine is my favorite scent. That little guy with the double chin looks sweet in your garden. :)

    Isn't it nice when your computer starts working again? Mine has been running terribly slow these days.
