Summer Storm

The amount of rain we have had this summer so far (and I am counting May) is absolutely ridiculous! I was wondering how I was going to keep up with the watering of my garden, being that it is in the far back corner of our yard and we have no hose that even comes close. Worry not! Mother nature has watered my garden plenty!! I think I've only hauled a watering can out there maybe 4 or 5 times....today being one of them. If I would have known the forecast I would have known that today would be unnecessary for watering by me as well!
The garden is going bazerk and I cannot keep up with the pruning, weeding, thinning of the garden by any means. I am going to tackle it something serious tomorrow if the weather permits, but it is like a jungle out there!!!

This big mess just so happens to be carrots!


Green Beans


Lettuce and more lettuce

And more beans

Cucumber and Peas


Lillies


And Sweet Peas....my all time favorite


Right after I took these pictures we had the biggest summer storm. Black clouds, wind, rain, lightening, thunder. Crazy.
I found Rand relaxing on the front porch....his favorite place to be when it's storming...doing one or two of his favorite things.




So we all hung out and watched the storm. I left early to blog about it. :)





Sammy was a little scared.....but that's what Wyatt is for! :)

Where is our rain? We are not that far away and we only got sprinkles.

Your garden looks great! Did your tomatoes survive?
