Wild Weather


Our state had some wild weather, this past week.  Strong storms, hail, high winds, and tornadoes were frequent problems.  Though we had all of the above, we escaped any severe damage.  

A meeting of the minds.  

Our garden was planted over the Mother's Day weekend and ended up under several inches of water on Thursday.  A few tomato plants will need to be replaced, but lettuce, cucumbers, and a few other items are sprouting.  How the seeds did not just float away, I will never know.  




Heavy rains caused a small roof leak and some inconvenience, but it could have been so much worse.  

"Keep your eyes open to your mercies.  The man who forgets to be thankful has fallen asleep in life."  

Robert Louis Stevenson

  4. Oh boy ~ tornados sound rather scary ... It is wonderful that it didn't happen near your house! The floating garden must have been an unwelcome surprise, but it is good that many of the plants survived!
    The yellow flowers have such a deep, warm color and a pretty, star-like shape... Enjoy the garden, witnessing the process of spiring and growth!

  8. May has been strange weather wise. Hopefully, our gardens will be prolific though our second planting of corn is not doing well.

  22. I love your dog and cow picture.. the dog is thinking.. "I was bred to chase you." and the cow is thinking.. "I'm glad you're on the other side of the fence." Glad your seeds stayed put! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  23. I think you were fortunate that you only have to repace the Tomato plants.

  24. I know tornadoes are horrific for families that are hit by them but I do find them fascinating. I was on a lake in Maine when one passed over us and touched down in the woods tearing a path through the forest. Nothing like the giant tornadoes you get down there though.
