Tornado….

 

 

These are photos of the damage we received
from a tornado the last week of April.

House and barns were not touched so we feel
very blessed. It was almost like a bubble was sitting
over the house.

Sun is out!!

 

It has rained so much I can’t plant my flowers!
We can’t play baseball either…games are
always cancelled!
I’m wondering if this weather pattern is going
to hold all summer…..hope not.

Anyway the sun is out and I took a few pictures.

I put a roof over their nest to
protect them from the rain and the hot sun.

Spring is upon us….

 

All Summer Beauty Hydrangeas

These are supposed to bloom all summer. I’ve planted six of them in big pots alongside our
parking area…everyone who comes to our
house comes this way.

Blackberries…they were supposed to be thornless.
This one plant is sending up shoots all over the place.
By next summer the whole garden will be eaten by vines!

about the dogwood tree and Jesus…sigh!
