Stepping stones don't help much in weather like this.
These are the stepping stones in dry weather..
I tried making this little video of the rain water that comes rushing in...
our little rickety pier. Imagine wandering out there to sit.
and this little side foot bridge that crosses the ditch that drains into the pond, was almost under water. Duck Duck says this is his kind of weather! Notice how far out in the water the iris are now?
there were puddles everywhere!
but after the sun came out and dried things out a bit, we went for that much needed walk...
Eli said he just wanted to soak up a little of that good feeling sunshine.
that big rose bush with the tiny pink boutonniere roses is in bloom.
Anyhow, we needed this rain. The garden perked right up and all the beans have come through the ground.
Shortly after the rain ended, I put on my old rubber boots and sloshed up to the garden to have a look.
Okay, I need to sew tonight and here it is 9:00. Thank you all and I shall return.
