Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain.

Good morning from a very soggy Lansing.
On Saturday morning, we received 2 inches of rain. Sat. night, another 1/4 inch. Sunday was hot(92), but dry so I got a bunch of deadheading and weeding done. Sunday night it rained and rained, and rained, giving us another 2 inches as of this morning, with scattered rain predicted today and tonight. Our entire area is under a flood watch. Fortunately, our house sits on high ground.
Today I'll be installing another dishwasher in the mo-ho. They were on clearance at Menard's, and Craig wanted one. I don't no why, because I do all the dishes when we camp.
And here's a few flowers currently blooming in the garden.

The first 3 pics are all Helenium's. I really like the first one. A pretty bi-color.

And this little fella is called a Blackberry Lily. It's kind of an orange-red color. This is the only color I've seen, but Randy and Jamie have a yellow one you can see here.
And these self seed easily, so if any one would like seeds, let me know, and I'll mail them to you.


  1. I've never heard of a Helenium before. I like them! Thanks for the link! :-)--Randy

  2. Wow, another fine display of your garden! I love that first shot....because of the "non standard" colors of the seems that most people go gaga over the pinks, purples, reds in flowers....but I like the less popular colors.

  3. As always, very pretty. Maybe Craig has decided you need a break from washing dishes in the MoHo? Very thoughtful of him!
