Rain, Rain, Rain

Heavy November rains have arrived. “Local urban flooding” comes with these rains which means that the fields surrounding town are starting to look like lakes, Fern Hill Road will soon be covered with water and closed for a few days, the yard and garden are totally soaked,¬†and there’s water in our basement (and most basements in the neighborhood). Just the usual Pacific Northwest late Autumn deluge. Tomorrow, if the downpour lets up and it’s not too windy, I’ll venture out to take some flood photos. For now, here’s a photo of our front walkway, completely puddled. It’s nice to spend the afternoon quietly inside, out of the rain, watching movies and being with family.

June in the Garden

It’s so easy to take a short blogging break that ends up being much longer than anticipated! In an attempt to get myself back to blogging about my garden, I’ve decided to post a garden photo a day for the month of June. I enjoy taking photos when I’m outside watering or puttering around, and I think it will help me to resume my online journaling about our¬†garden in the Grove. I hope you enjoy the daily shots this month! Here’s the first one, taken this morning.
