We've had almost the normal amount of rain for July and August in just one week!
Thankfully, we don't have a basement, so we don't have to worry about flooding.
But I'm not getting any yard work done either!
We did manage to mow the yard today before we got the next deluge. Another 3/4 of an inch.
And a tornado hit just south west of here.
Now back to the yard.
I wanted to take a pic of this flower before the Japanese beetles ruined it.
This is called Copper King. It's a perennial Hibiscus. The flowers are almost 12 inches across! The leaves are a reddish green. And it's one of the few hardy Hibiscus that are multi-colored.
the damn Japanese Beatles.
They shred them like lace.
See the little bugger in the middle?
But that's living with nature I guess.
Thanks to all the rain,
we have spores growing in the yard.
I found a mushroom in my shade garden.
It is huge!
I've never seen one this big!
It's the size of my hand!
Anyone want to buy it?
which is why I haven't posted.
very busy.....very busy......
