That's what some reports are saying fell during the wee hours of the morning. I don't know for sure, but the yard looks pretty beat up. The basement water feature is larger. I need to pick up a box fan today. I'll be pushing water towards the drain in the floor all morning.
In the garden, plants have flopped all over the place.
The tomatoes should have been staked a week ago. I'll be doing that as soon as the ground dries out enough to hold a stake. Each plant will be tied to a stake. It's too late to try any other method. I just hope I don't break them. I need to prune suckers too.
The gully refilled last night. From the looks of it, it overflowed.
The pussywillow cuttings I stuck into the moist soil this spring seem to enjoy the extra moisture.
Same with the cannas.
And the elephant ears are finally coming up.
Some rudbeckia made it without flopping.
Including a new brown/orange variety.
And I have squash blooms. There's one on just about all the plants. The sun is trying to poke through the clouds now, so hopefully the bees will come out to play.
It's 72 degrees. 80% chance of rain this afternoon with more thunderstorms likely. I guess there's no drought after all.
