After all that rain I have to spend the day mowing the lawn and other care for the gardens today. We have four gardens here on the river. There are two out by the county road, a veggie garden with some sunflowers and other wild flowers we planted. On the other side of the driveway is a raspberry garden we just planted this year. I'm already getting a small amount of fruit. Next year it will be much better, these things multiply like mice . . . or something like that. Then there are the two beautiful flower gardens down by the house. They were well established when we bought the house. Jill Johnson, director at the Center for the Arts in New York Mills will be picking up paintings today.
