Major Rain & Wind Storm


It's me standing in the middle
of the backyard during
a rain and wind storm
yesterday.

 The snowball bush is now
all over the ground
...see all the white petals
with Miss Sophie Marple investigating.

 The magnolia looks fresh and green
and I just know there's
something under the vegetation
that just shouldn't be there
...at least that's what I think!

Wetness
everywhere
can make things looks
a bit drab....



but this Allium Nectaroscordum
just glows with all the wetness
and moody background.

I hope you enjoyed my damp trek
through the yard....
I guess Tropical Storm Debby
is off the coast now.

She can stay out there if she doesn't mind!

  1. Surely a tropical storm named DEBBY can't be ALL bad, can it?

    1. If I could only bottle it all up and ship to those places that are in dire need of moisture....I would if I could!

    1. Dream about it as much as you can and then you'll feel like you are there doing it!

  4. The snowball bush snowed!
    Your garden is lovely, wet or dry.

    1. Exactly, Terry...we have so much white in the winter and then we have white petals in the summer...can't tell me WHITE isn't a fave colour around here!

    1. Oh thanks...I just thought the overcast day might make me look a wee bit forlorn.

    1. Nothing worse than M.N. being upset...trees are so beautiful and to have them come tumbling down...just not fair. We lost 14 trees a few years back now and remnants are still visible. Take care of yourselves!
