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.
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!
