Just A Little Too Much

 After two days of rain we had a thunderstorm last evening that sat over us for almost an hour and a half.
The garden beds in the lowest part of the back garden were flooded. During a lull in the storm, my DH ventured out and saw water overflowing the waterways he had created to divert the rainfall that he had hoped would prevent this from happening. If this much rain had fallen over a longer period of time I think it would have.
Our land drains fairly rapidly because it is mostly limestone with many underground caverns. But with this much rain it will take a while for all of it to drain away.Then the cleanup can begin. 


  1. I love that reflecting pond surrounded by daylilies. I love the daylilies too. Beautiful things and so pricey.~~Dee

  2. Hi Sue Ellen! This is the first time I've seen your posts. What an amazing collection of daylilies. Of course I signed up to follow you immediately. I'm very anxious to look through your archives. You certainly did get the rain!
    Do take care... Larry
