We had a whopper thunderstorm this morning and got two inches of rain in short shrift.
Lilly stayed out all night long... I thought I heard her at 1 asking to come in (she scrapes the door)... and when I went to the door, I didn't see her on the deck. At 4, there was a definite scrape under my window for her to come in. She hates storms. I saw lightening in the distance at 1, and
more at 4.
The storm started at 5, and laid a swath through Leavenworth, doing big damage at Mount Muncie Cemetery and the National Cemetery, both of which I have shown you. Mount Muncie has those gorgeous old trees, so I will go over there in a few days and take a look.
Can you tell that I am standing IN water in the back yard?
Our back of the back yard. It's a long story.
Yes, we have a pond.
That's the side yard, by the patio. See that bare spot on the left? It's a mound of bad
birdseed that piled up all winter. It's REEKING. At some point, I need
to dig it up and haul it out.
Yes, I know you aren't supposed to leave it in the bird feeding area.
It will get hauled out at some point, I have quit trying to hurry to do everything.
Yes, the sun did come out this afternoon!
After I helped with tours at the Ag Hall this morning, I took the dogs
for a short walk, as the humidity was still high.
This pretty slider girl was helped across the road, and I watched to make sure she was oriented and started off again.
Check out behind the calf... the pasture pond is so very full!
It's been a while since the water came up to the cow's chests.
I couldn't help it... I wanted to be sure the babies were safe after the hail and strong winds.
So are these babies.
Keith and I noticed something in a planter out in front yesterday.
It's hiding under the heuchera.
It grew while I was gone today.
A few days ago, I put one of my sweet potato plants out on the porch.
This morning, it blew over in the storm.
I picked it up, and look what I found!
Too wild. I'm going to cook it tomorrow night.
I tromped through the water to look at the SBG... the plants I planted on
Saturday look great!
I was so glad to see this, I am really looking forward to it this summer.
Gratuitous picture of my boy.
I think this will make you laugh... turn it up so you can hear it,
and sorry for the shaky camera work.
We expect sun tomorrow!
