Scattered thunderstorms, especially during the morning. A few storms may be severe. High 81F. Winds SSW at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of rain 50%
Thanks for the thread Bernie,
I am so glad to finally be in May :o)
I think the red columbine are my favorite color.
I have a red perennial called Red Hobitt and it reseeds true to color. But it barely reseeds. I still only have one plant. The yellow Swallowtail does to, and it really reseeds. I have some potted from last year for the free pile.
Pretty iris!! Love the color!
You would love Ruby Port too!
A T-storm went thru south of us this morning, but the majority went north of us. The weather alert went off for the northern counties about 2:30 am.
Grandmother's Garden are random colors and pleated
Ruby Port may seed into a brighter but still gorgeous color
Oops, I think I got a corydalis in there :o)
Red Hobbit and Swallowtail
Oh please send rain this way...my well is even struggling. The days are very pleasant but the breezes, although nice, are drying everything out. My peppers are loving it though. No rain in the forecast until next weekend...ugh! Our only weather alert is fire weather watch.
Love all the beautiful flowers, the columbine are really nice, I've never seen that.
Desert Rose blooming real nice now, bumble bee on my Penta, Hawk last night perched above us in our oak while we were watching the sunset, those dark eyes.
Partial cloudiness early, with scattered showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon. A few storms may be severe. Winds SSW at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of rain 50%
It's a gorgeous morning. That one perfect temp after a long chilly spring. It's balmy. I see June bugs, a crane fly, a few sizes of moths and last night there was a very persistent and a very reluctent red admiral both determined. They must have flown all day barely, staying where they lit. I'm sure I saw a wren altho he's not singing yet and I did have a bluebird :o)
The words were already out of my mouth. Yes, it's Heaven!
I hope you get rain. I hate to hear about your well running dry :o(
If our town ever went to a water tower, they want to pump it from the river rather than our aquifiers. ICK!
Nice pictures! I love Penta, but it's an annual here.
Awww! Don't you just love new pine buds?
When you are all done, I hope you can take one day to just rest and sort out your thoughts.
I am so glad I got my flu shot! I've heard of it going around. Prayers for both to get well.
DH mowed for me yesterday. I'm still tired and fighting sinus. Not 100% like I hoped :o(
Beautiful Hawaiian Weather is trying to return. A little cloudy to start with but when my wife and I drove down to Hilo this morning the sun came out, white puffy clouds and the Pacific Ocean was sparkling blue. A nice fresh trade wind to keep is cool. Got home midday after going decadent with a Klondyke Ice Cream and subway for lunch and dinner. Really feel like laid back retirees.
I wonder if Columbine will grow in Hawaii. I bet Home Depot has seed. We shall see.
It was nice and hot here today, upper 80's with the same forecast for a few days, rained the past two days with more to come later this weekend. May is the wettest month of the year for us in central indiana. light winds and comfortable.
nice, nice, garden ,with the pics! countrygardens
kwanjin; Grandma got a bunch of trees for arbor day,and guess who gets to plant them wondering where they should go(lol)
Isolated thunderstorms this morning. Skies will become partly cloudy this afternoon. Warm. Winds SE at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 30%.
Tornado warning last night but the worst of everything went under and over us. We didn't even get the wind.
Your weather sounds like mine yesterday. It doesn't get any better than that!
Columbine likes poor rocky soil, but adapts.
What an elaborate, beautiful, complex bloom!
Just beautiful in full green dotted with color!
I remember you working on a couple of these beds last year. Love the line of Lilies and can't wait for the line of Iris!
Our ground temp as of yesterday was 58°. I took tomatoes and little cabbage out to start hardening off. The tomatoes got tall fast! The cabbage seem to burn under the lights so I am learning to get them into cooler air right away. Trouble is, they get so leggy first. I'm not sure I can sink them, altho the first ones I set out I did, and they lived. I was either going to save them or lose them, so had nothing to lose, LOL!
Yesterday I put in a couple hours of weeding on the outer edges of the South Peony. It was slow going as the dandelion digger had to be used for almost every weed. I also tried to just get the dandelions and chickweed. They were really spread out and when pulled made a lot of ''room,'' LOL!
Going out to DD's today. Since I haven't been out, she's getting behind and picking up the ''sick'' we are all almost done with.
High 80s, humid and sunny. I got a load of garden soil and compost and started spreading it on my veggie bed on top of the cardboard. Not nearly enough but it's a start. Would have been better if I had remembered potting soil so I could get some more planters going. LOL
Well it finally made it to 90 today...each day looks like it might rain but then the seabreeze blows it away. Next week they say a better chance.
Bernie I love the green green green, bet those hostas fill in real nice...keep posting pictures, I love hostas but they hate our heat.
Mike what a stunning bloom, I bet Hawaii has some unique flowers.
Jeanne, hope things get going with your mom's house. Sorry to hear about the sickness and a heart attack...yikes.
Billy glad the tornado missed you. I'm still getting tomatoes but the the heat and dry temps are taking a toll on them, don't know how much longer they're going to produce. The cherry tomatoes have slowed down considerably, but still getting blossoms.
kwanjin, seems like we shouldn't be hearing hard freezes anymore, this has been one crazy weather roller coaster this season. Hope you plants fare well and the freeze is short lived.
Juhur your weather sound pretty much perfect to me.
Well hopefully next time I check in I can shout, WE GOT RAIN! :) Have a great week everyone.
I think my cat is telling me I get on the computer too much...lol.
I wish the weather would make up its mind what to do. Light rain all morning and now nice blue sky and fluffy white clouds and HOT, only about 80f but humid after the rain. The ground is like walking on a wet sponge. Can't really do anything except walk around and enjoy the fruits of past labor.
Will probably put a potted Fuchsia into a hanging basket to make some outside bench room for the Fuchsia cutting that came in the mail a couple of weeks ago. They look like they are over travel shock and could do with some cool rain and sunshine.
Love that cat Sherri and that fruit bowl looks better than what we can get in Hawaii.
Storms this morning, lunchtime, and now the last couple hours or so. Tornados forming then falling apart before doing any damage. Hail is very damaging in these storms tonight. A guy my dad does work for already has called with damage at his place. There was also a tornado about 1-2 miles south of him earlier.
It was raining yesterday morning at this time it is raining this morning also.Had some thunder and lightning yesterday afternoon for a while. Rain ,rain and more rain, I'll miss it later this summer,isn't that always way.Everything is rather a wet mucky, messy.
Weather is settling down to a normal spring/summer pattern. Light showers and cloud over night. Early morning sun burns off the cloud so by 10am it nice blue sky and white fluffy clouds with a breeze. By afternoon its hot. Then by 5pm cloud builds back and showers start again to repeat the pattern. Quite pleasant and predictable. Everything grows like crazy.
Over 80 buds on the Orchid cactus plants. Should be quite a show in a few weeks. Might have four night bloomers come out this week.
When I try and attach more than two photos my computer times out the "send" process and I have to start from scratch. Lets just try two this time
One is a torch ginger and the other a garden shot.
Thunder and lightning like crazy around midnight, but not much rain, if any. It's been cloudy all day, a great day just to rest. Supposed to rain tomorrow. We sure could use it. Then it is supposed to cool down again...yea!
So nice to see some of your yard. You do have some back water don't you, but that's just opportunity, unless it breeds mosquitos.
Yesterday was the first day I had any energy and I stayed out till 5:30 weeding in all the beds. I'm no where near done, but got the worst in all of them. I potted up plants and set up the free pile. A few pots are missing already.
I think my Claire de Lune is going to do better this year with the walnut tree shade gone. It would tolerate shade, but not thrive in it. I've been threading the vines up as they grow. They are such tender things and I have to careful to not squeeze or break them.
My iris look better in person and many smell of licorace :o)
I saw a hummingbird yesterday and have the columbine to feed it :o)
A long view of my front yard thru the grapes, North to South :o)
Well we finally had a few nice rain storms, so happy and the garden already looks better. A few dry days since this is supposedly a cool front, but still upper 80's. Hopefully will stay this nice through the weekend, I'm having a BBQ here for a combination mother's day and my Pop's 80th birthday!
Billy and Mike so nice to see your garden photos, I would like to come and walk through both of them and sit for a spell.
Another great day. Rain stopped at about 6.30am after overnight showers. Cloudy til about midday and then sunny periods. Winds are getting lighter. Should lose the trade winds altogether by the weekend.
The first pic is my outside plant bench. 20 x 6ft made of 4 inch nursery grade wire mesh. Four inch pot just sits pretty. The mesh allows me to put up a structure for hanging baskets along the back using 3 inch PVC pipe. Just slip the legs through the mesh and tie with zip ties. No rot or rust with PVC.
Second pic is a garden shot across two 18ft wide circular ponds and across the driveway.
If anyone is vacationing in Hawaii let us know. Be happy to host a tour of the Big Island.
Took advantage of the weather yesterday with a friend and went bike riding. Rode a trail and did a little over 5 miles. First time either one of us has been on a bike in years!! A little wobbly but not bad considering. lol
Now I need to get a couple roses planted and get caught up on weeds. I have one area that is waist high and another that is just plain stubbon and I just want to rip it out. I planted daylilies hoping they would spread and cut out the weeds on their own. No such luck here!! lol
Sunshine and a few afternoon clouds. Warm. Winds SSW at 15 to 25 mph
A BBQ sounds delicious. Happy Birthday to your Dad. Mine will be 82 on the 30th.
ROTFL! But I like youir idea!
I was watching a show on the Pacific last night, on how volcanos made the land. They had great shots of the underwater volcano that tries to make an island, but the waves keep taking it away. It literally explodes under the surface. It also showed the highways being reclaimed by lava. Then they showed how plants grow in lava. They send down 20' long roots to gather moisture in lava tubes. It's amazing, this world.
I love your plant stand!!
Wow! Love the ponds too!
How cold do you get, for ''winter?''
Pepper, are those muscles screaming today? I still ride my bike every year. So does my Dad. He rides it up here, rather than get the car out.
We get the wind back today, but at least it will be a warm wind! Trouble is, dirt will be flying with it so my nice clean house will fill up if I open windows. Guess that's what you get, living in a farming State :o)
I think I need to mow. Hang clothes for sure, and hopefully pot up more plants for the free pile. I've already walked around making notes of changes I want to make with the iris. The Pallidas, that smell like purple koolaid are really nice in a big area. I'm going to line the back of the South Peony with them. It should be a wonderful scented walk next year!
No wind today so day started off partly cloudy and clouds just sort of gathered over the island and then let loose well scattered showers. Nice 70f.
Billy - what do you mean by back water. We are on the side of a mountain. Our property has three 6 ft wide by 6ft deep stream beds that are dry 90% of the year. They only flow during and just after heavy rain or long periods of rain. We have small areas of wetland in the forest but no open standing water. Everything drains really quickly through the volcanic soil. Streams have been carved through the soil, down to the last lava flow hundreds of years ago. The stream bed is solid rock so we have about 6 ft of soil to work with. 3/4 of a mile from us they have no soil, just lava rock to build and garden on. The lava flowed over that area less than 100 years ago. Over there they need to truck in soil and use jack hammers to put in fence posts. Trees and brush have returned to that area so it is forested but only a few inches of loam from leaves and rotting vegetation. Closer to the coast where the lava flowed in the1980s folks are starting to build homes on pure lava. Looks like a black concrete ploughed field. That land is cheap and the current lava flow is less than three miles away and a threat to their new homes. No power, no water but cheap.
Lowest temp we have experienced in last 20 years is 48f. Winter nights get down to mid 50s. Some winter days can stay as low as low 60s. Very few mosquitos, no snakes, no poison ivy, no poisonous spiders, no lions or tigers, very few bird species, no squirrels, no deer, no foxes, no monkeys. Very safe benign environment.
Some clouds this morning will give way to generally sunny skies for the afternoon. High 73F. Winds NNE at 5 to 10 mph.
Happy Mother's Day!!
So glad you got rain. Rain just makes it all better doesn't it?
Around here, any water that stays in a spot after overflow from a river or a heavy rain, we call backwater.
backwater [ˈbækˌwɔːtə] n
1. (Earth Sciences / Physical Geography)
A body of stagnant water connected to a river
2. water held or driven back, as by a dam, flood, or tide
3. (Earth Sciences / Physical Geography) an isolated, backward, or intellectually stagnant place or condition
vb back water
You live in a very interesting place and 6' of soil over the rock is fantastic! I didn't realize it could build up so deep. No way would I ever build 3 miles from a lava flow.
You have plusses and minuses. I love the many many birds we have, but hate the mosquuitos, gnats and flies! And so glad to only have to worry about mountain lions in the woods. There aren't many of those, but they are here.
Abundant sunshine. High 73F. Winds NE at 5 to 10 mph.
On the 13th, I haven't smoked for 16 years!!
Epi is beautiful! Is it scented?
I planted 30 hills of potatoes yesterday with DH's help. I dug a small hole and he loosened up the dirt to make room for tham to spread. I have all the tomatoes and peppers out now and need to put in green beans. I ran out of time last night.
I divided a couple hosta and we delivered them to the girl that wanted them. They own the meat locker in the next town and I knew he raised bees, then I found he sells the raw honey at the shop!! I'm sooo happy! I just finished an old jar of Souix Bee and said no more. It didn't even taste good, but I needed to make honey butter for cornbread :o)
I decided to move the compost pile to surround the brick fireplace DH built, to burn papers with our name on them. It was wasted space and the area the pile is in now, will be rich for planting next year!
I'm also watering for my neighbor the next two weeks and we have one grandson over the weekend.
Well we are getting rain and rain and rain...finally. Today all day long. But we need it so bad..the rivers we kayak in are too dry and you can walk in them.
Billy congrats...I don't know what day I threw my pack of cigs out my car window, but it was before my second son was conceived and he is going to be 25 this summer...best thing I ever did in my life. Too bad my DH still smokes. Sounds like you are one busy busy person, enjoy the grandson. Oh and Happy birthday to your Pop...nice to know you still have him around also.
Mike I wish I was taking a vaca in Hawaii, thought you were going to offer a stay at your place...lol. Enjoy seeing your photos of all your lush garden growth.
Jeanne hope your son had a great birthday. My youngest will be 21 next month...he was born the first day of summer.
Pepper nice to get out on a bike ride...I do more bike riding than walking once temps get up high, much cooler way to exercise.
Well it has been raining all day long and I'm kind of bored...guess I'll go walk around the garden with my umbrella...not used to all day rain. :)
Beautiful weather with an occasionsal rain. Daylilies and rose of sharon are in bloom.
We've had an emergency. My sister is in ICU, is septic, and just went from hour to hour to day to day. She was on a ventilator but is now breathing on her own. She had kidney stones that blocked a duct and the infection got in her blood stream. We are not out of the woods yet. Please pray. Spending most of the time at the hospital...again.
It was exactly one year ago on Mother's Day that we took my Mom in last year and she passed away June 13th.
Thanks for your prayers! It was an absolutely gorgeous day! More daylilies in bloom. After I went to the hospital I came home and enjoyed the beautiful garden. I am so thankful we had a mild winter. Everything is so beautiful!
Things are about the same today with my sister. Her blood pressure was up, but went from one extreme to the other from low to high. Her her heart rate at rest was 101 at times. She was very agitated, and just could not get comfortable. She is starting to get fiesty, so that is a good sign. Please pray the antibiotics will lick that infection! We pretty much need a miracle.
Prayers for your sister, Jeanne!
Love all your pics, such beautiful flowers!
We've had rain all this week and still going to rain on week-end, but it's good because we had such a terrible drought sine spring started. Temps are good 70F.
My garden is full of daisies this year! And one picture with Nicholas and the doggies!LOL
Another gorgeous day in Texas! Pretty much the same, sunny, breezy, no rain.
We had a setback. The hospital called this morning early and said my sister's status had changed in the night, they were not ruling out a stroke and she was being moved back to ICU.
Her speech has been severely affected, I can hardly understand a word she says. Her left side of her face twitches, and her left hand trembles. Whatever the episode is, it has happened about six times during the course of the day. Fortunately she is right handed and can write notes. She is very upset that she cannot speak. I have assurred her that everything is going to be alright.
The CAT scan showed no bleeding. They were supposed to do an MRI but still had not come to get her at eight pm.
She has a swallowing test tomorrow. We are back to day to day.
One DR thinks it may be a reaction to medication and that it will just go away...which would be wonderful.
Breezy, sunny and drier, temp climbing towards 80+f today.
One pic of our driveway from the road and although we can't grow those gorgeous Iris' we do pretty good with the Epis. This is our front porch (house is elevated) with the Epi buds and blooms just starting to show.
Windy with sunshine. Warm. Winds SSE at 20 to 30 mph.
Wow, A huge CONGRATS to you guys too!!
I hope sister is better by now. It's never a good anniversary and I'm so sorry for your loss.
Sorry to not comment on all. I'm running out of time.
It's been busy here and I've been gone more than home, or outside more than in. Today, it's back out to Sara's to help her. When I get home it will be time for dinner and I need to mow after. We have had no rain so the serious watering has started. The astilbes are getting fried so I watered them twice yesterday. Most of the tags got raked out last fall with the walnut tree debris so I need to get out my chart, tag them and move the best to a shady spot. Which I weeded, and pottted extra columbine for the free pile. As soon as I add to the free pile someone stops, LOL! I can't keep up :o)
DH made me a new compost bin so I've moved what hasn't broken down to it and ain the process of spreading the good on the flower beds.
No new pictures till it's trimmed a little better, but... Oh yes I did. 8'' gone. I noticed the other day after I washed it, the ends were really dry, as it dried. So I decided to whack it off while it still looked pretty good to save :o)
Thank you ''Dave's Garden'' for letting us post 5 pictures :o)
Pretty much into our typical summer weather pattern now, gets up to low 90's and every few days a good thunderstorm giving us much needed water. Our well sounds better now...thank goodness. Nice thing about the thunderstorms is they can cool us down instantly to mid seventies. :)
Adina your flowers are so lovely, of course lil' Nick is so darn cute. Glad to see green and not white snow there.
Jeanne so sorry about the set back with your sister. My mother-in-law had something like that happen when she was in the hospital and they first thought a stroke but later it all went away and they did determine is was a side effect from medication...hoping that is the case with your sis.
CG...I wish I could buy some of your tomatoes...getting way too hot here and mine our about done for the season.
Mike love th orchid cactus, so pretty.
kwanjin what great shots of the eclipse..thanks for sharing those.
Billy wow, your hair is so long, it is time to cut my ends also, but I hate to in the summer because I love to braid it back and out of my way.
Ju and Billy hope you both get that much needed rain. Ju that spirit tree touches the heart, hard to believe that was already a year ago.
Hope everyone is doing well... I have a virus that just won't give up! Though I don't give up on my gardening as it's now too hot & humid! This is still way to early for temps in the 90's!!! I am constantly checking the plants & veggies so they don't dry out, but one of my tomato plants is not doing well!!
It's windy today, so I am hoping rain is coming soon!!!
Same tradewind weather pattern with a twist yesterday. High pressure to the north strengthened and raised our trade winds to 15-30 miles per hour which means some areas on down hill leeward slopes get winds 50 mph. An upper level low passed over our island yesterday and allowed clouds to build in height and the rain became moderate to heavy. One grey wet day.
Today that upper level low has drifted to the West allowing the weather to return to normal and giving us a great day. Some other islands are getting the strong winds.
Nothing new with the volcano. A lava flow is edging closer to the ocean so in a few days or weeks we may get some more spectacular news footage of hot lava hitting the ocean.
Weather forecasters are reminding usl about the start of the Hurricane season next month. Telling us we may get 2 - 4 systems enter the central pacific area this season. But as they say - It only takes one! Its 20 years since Iniki hit Kauai.
Heavy rain here, floods in some parts of the country and still danger of floods . We have water in our basement...arrrggghhh! Happy Dance today no rain!!!! You can see the Dyson dark we've been having all week...my DD and Nicholas playing in our yard.
WOW!!! bad weather from so many, you all stay well.
Drizzle being squeezed out of the heat , cloudy for hours then sunny , hot about 90,light breeze from one to eight mph maybe.Humidity is enough to smother ya in damp.
Melons and more flowers coming up the past few days,A tomato plant in bloom and most everything in the garden is doing well
Storms rolled thru last night and again this morning. Finally ended just before 10am. Then the sun came out and heated things up big time!! Well into the 90s today with high humidity. Supposed to be hot all weekend with rain chance on Memorial Day.
Same again today, showers last night, quite a bit of water laying around this morning but cloud burned off and now its gentle breezes, blue sky and Hot. Just topped off at 81F. makes me feel so lucky when I read your updates and see how the mainland is heating up and its only end of May
I don't tweet or text so over the last few months of enjoying this thread I have been guessing at things like DH, DD, LOL.
Now I know LOL is Lots of Laughs - will at least I think its not Lots of Lupins. Is DH Dear Husband or Dumb Husband. Is there a glossary of terms somewhere. Do gardeners have different meanings to these letters than say automotive repair guys or sports people. Can be most confusing.
Bernie, I hope you and the other gardeners won't have any damge from flooding. We're having the same flooding here in Romania and so much rain too.
Mike, LOL! Pepper cleared it all up for you!
It rained again last night, but we didn'thave any more flooding into our basement. Yesterday I took out a few buckets of water and that was all. I think it floods when the wind blows hard, so last night when it rained without wind no water got inside. Thak God for that!
But in Bucharest and other parts they had floods because of so much rain in only one hour. The sewer was overwhelmed!
Today is cloudy but calm, no wind , 65F. Hopefully no more heavy rain.
This is from last night before it started to rain, clouds coming from the mountains. And few with Nicholas in the garden. Water on the filed after the rain and last is with the so-called basement which is outside the house.
Happy Memorial Day to my weather friends...we are having a mini tropical storm, Beryl is its name, every news caster says the name different. Warnings on the coast, we are inland 26 miles and so not bad here, just breezy and bringing a band of rain, then sunny again. Sure is muggy out. Should all clear out by grilling time.
Adina those are some beautiful flowers you have growing.
Mike your dogs are adorable...I'm a big dog type person...but do find the little ones awfully cute. I see you have your wading boots on.
CG...I'm sorry you're getting so much rain...I hope it takes a break so your fields can drain.
I've had such a bad sinus cold thanks to my DS (in this case, Dang Son)...but today feel much better...a cold in the summer stinks! I've got to get better, busy week this week with graduations and a book sale, and then next weekend me and the DH (darling husband for now) are taking off for our 30th wedding anniversary. ☺
Only 1 4/10ths last night. No flooding here but it added size to ponds in farmers' fields. Lot of crop loss.
Sunshine this morning. Weather liar finally said we are no longer in a drought situation. 12" of rain for month of May!
Actually they couldn't miss this month, just forecast rain everyday, good chance you would be right.
Just another beautiful day in Hawaii. A little breezy and one or two showers but no complaints.
Sherri - THEY ARE NOT MY DOGS. Those are not waders :) Believe it or not that is our daily outside foot wear for our garden, even my DW has a pair. We keep one pair at the bottom of the steps from the front door and another pair at the back door- remember being from England we call them "wellington boots". They get a bit hot in the summer but with more days wet than dry under foot they work well. Of course I don't wear them to the office!
This is more my size. Our Andy goes about 150 lbs.
76 this morning...whew, that is about the warmest is has been before the sunrise this season...so guess it is officially summer here. Tropical storm Beyrl is moving up and off the coast and he did give Florida much needed rain, in fact just north of us had flood warnings yesterday. But hopefully the wild fires have all been put out.
Now Mike that is a Dog! I no longer have my Mitzi, she was with us thirteen years and has been gone now for 2 1/2, some days I think about getting another, but we do so much traveling and I have to admit my garden sure looks wonderful now with out all the dog runs in it.
kwanjin, Put up some posters in the area, that is how we found the owners of a dog that showed up at our house once, also our paper doesn't charge a fee for found dogs...and there is Craigslist for free to put a notice. Poor doggie, hopefully she finds her owners again.
Pepper was a beautiful lily!
My dog Mitizi, she was the best and I still miss her terribly:
Same here. It took me a while to get the abreviations too. IMHO threw me. ''In my humble opinion.''
Good to ''see'' you and love the dogs!
Andy is a big handsome guy! What kind is he, or is he a mix?
It took me a month to get over the colds the ''danged'' grandkids gave me. I hope you feel better soon!
Royal Sunset? I find mine, tho planted deep, surfaced and the bulbs grow half out of the ground. All thru the winter. They are beautiful this year, just starting to bloom.
German Shepards are my favorite! Mine was named Missy, when I was four. What an awesome dog Mitzi was. I'd miss her too.
We had rain too. 5/10's of an inch and I'll take it! We need much more tho.
Royal Sunset with the bulb out of the ground and blooming last year.
Missy adopted us, but bit someone walking by one day. We had to shut her up in the chicken house for 2 weeks to see if she was rabid and my parents decided it was better to put her down. I still mourn my dog. My little sister and I on the steps.
Hot and sunny earlier today,raining since 5;oclock ,temperture dropped to cool and comfortable.Nights in the fifties days upper sixties to low and mid seventies forecast for the week.Nice and seasonal.
Coneflowers just opening here also, daylillies too!
Highs in the low 70s, mostly cloudy with some sprinkles here and there. A bit chilly after dealing with 90s for so long!! But not complaining. Only complaint is no rain with this cool front. We need it bad.
Pow Wow White Coneflower and Summer Pastels yarrow
