That's Ridiculous!

No, THAT's Ranunculus!  Sorry, very bad joke.  What IS ridiculous is this weather we've been having.  I know, I know.  It is Spring, and it is Oregon.  But the flowers I bought on Saturday are still sitting out in the rain on my front walk, waiting to be put into the ground. I decided to forego the regular geraniums this year and try something new.  I was totally drawn to these beautiful yellow ranunculus-es. ( I wonder what the plural for that is....) 

 I would love to get just a tiny break in the weather, a little sunshine, dig a few holes, get my hands dirty; then my flowers will welcome the rain and I won't have to worry about watering them. But I am not going to plant flowers in the rain.  I am not going to plant flowers in the rain.  Well, if this keeps up I guess I may be planting flowers in the rain.

Happy Spring!

Those plants are gorgeous ~ I am also crossing my fingers for a break in the rain. I think one is coming tomorrow....we shall see.

And I thought your joke was far from ridiculous or rannuculus!

I like ranunculus bulbs (I think you make the bulbs plural 'cause it ends in us) and looking out at the lashing rain I hear you on having to plant in the rain. Got wet harvest veggies for dinner.

I love ranunculus! I'm going to be getting some for my yard too. I think they'll look great with my peonies. I LOVE perennials!

Love the plants... beautiful. I don't know why but I'm kind of enjoying the last few cozy rainy days at home in front of the fire. I'm sure I'll be totally sick of it in a few days but for now it's cozy.
