More rain is in our forecast for this holiday
weekend and the lake is full.
Only a month ago it was 12 feet below normal levels!
My garden is definitely green but
a few plants have gotten too
much water and aren't growing as well.
Yesterday I took this picture of my oakleaf hydrangea in the rain. Even though the blooms are large they
do hold up well when wet.
This weekend I'm hoping to get some more planting and mulching done before the heat finally does arrive.
I also need to clean and decorate
my front porch too.
This was our porch a few years ago decorated for the 4th of July.
I like to decorate it with our flag
and buntings for Memorial Day too.
Today the sun came out and the privet in our garden was full of bees and American Painted Ladies but I also counted six Monarchs flying about and enjoying the multitude of white fragrant blooms.
Such a joy to see them throughout the garden and then going back and forth to the
I'm so thankful that my butterfly garden is doing it's job and I'm hoping that the milkweeds I've planted will help them on their migration.
Crossing my fingers that we don't get rained out the entire weekend so I can
finish planting a few more annuals.
Have a wonderful weekend and
safe travels if you are on the road!
