Hell of a stormy night in our neck of the woods.
The thunder and rain started about 10p last night and we were hit with round after round of storms until about 8a this morning. No idea how much rain we got, but I'm guessing a minimum of three inches. We've got standing water everywhere and a flooded barn of course. Not to mention some serious erosion behind the barn again.
A few pictures from around the place that I took yesterday.
It's interesting that the lilac trees bloom about three weeks earlier than this lilac bush does.
Keeping that lovely smell around for a bit longer I guess.
They smell wonderful.
Check it out!
The first tomato's have set in the garden. Lots of blossoms on all the pepper plants too.
Jennifer Rain watching me intently as I tidy up the barn.
Dodger aka Hudson is winning the little dogs over bit by bit.
They still freak out at him occasionally though and will not yet play with him.
Yes that is my garden behind them and I definitely need to mow again.
But since the little dog wont play he finds other things to keep himself occupied:
So far he has eaten/popped 1 volleyball, 2 footballs and 2 basketballs.
We give him bones and they are quickly either devoured or stolen by Shasta when he is occupied doing something else, never to be seen again. I'm glad the kids are home for summer vacation because they all walk him, take time to play fetch about a thousand times a day and really spend a lot of time with him. Can't imagine what he would be up to if they were at school all day.
You can tell that her skull/jaw was crushed and broke, but she seems to have all her "brains" about her.
She still hasn't made it to back to the barn because Chyann worries she is not quite ready yet, but I think if she is well enough to climb the living room curtains she is well enough to be in the barn.
Have a great day and Fathers Day of course!
