I'm gone!


Yes, I'm not here.  I'm out of town.  This is Memorial Day weekend, and I decided to visit my friend Kathy before driving a bit further north where I will be putting flowers on my Grandparents graves.  I also plan to enjoy the next three days with her, sewing, and making lots of covers for my scrappy journals .

In the meantime, here are photos after the near flood we had two days ago.  The entire street was filled with water.  We had 3.59 inches in a single day (24 hour period).

Thankfully, I won't have to mow until I get back late Tuesday.

And look at the flowers that have bloomed in just a few days after I showed the flower bed last week.


The bad news is, it looks like sweeping didn't help much.

I'll be back before you know it, though.  Sorry I won't be able to leave you a comment if you visit, but I'll visit as soon as I'm home.

This looks such a peaceful spot! I am having to leave our caravan garden for 3 weeks - not being mean, but I hope it rains some days in England while we are away!! Our warden has promised that if there is a drought she will water the more delicate ones on the decking!! Chrisx
