Stormy Bloomin' Tuesday

The events of the past few days have been sobering.
We were spared major damage,
while some of our neighbors were not so fortunate.
The tornado touched down just three doors away.
Two of Lil' Guys gal pals down the street
had left on vacation the day before the storm.
Their home is in need of major repair.
We are so grateful that they were not home
when the twister struck.
We are counting our blessings
and sharing what we have this week.
Not many blooms, but most plants will recover.


rattleboxes toppled





our new bamboo screen still standing



ageratum blown over with strong winds


cosmos laid out flat


another trellis made it through



water is slowly receding





one calm scene among the upset


daisies will bounce back



impatients safely tucked in a basket fared well



This guy spent most of the last few days
outside of our screened porch,
but found his way to a safe haven on the plumbego.

We hope all of you are enjoying summer weather
that's a little less exciting than what we've had here lately.

We also hope to have some lovely blooms next week
after this blessing of rain, rain, rain!
Take care out there!
