We had to go home (although at the moment, I'm not sure exactly where 'home' is) Tuesday evening as hubby had an early meeting in Tyler on Wednesday. He had to be back in Pasadena Thursday morning, so that meant we had to drive back Wednesday night. Yes, through all those storms you saw on the weather radar Wednesday night. It was a real nail-biter. We kept thinking we would eventually drive out of it, but we seemed to be moving at the same pace (slow!) and in the same direction so we were pretty much in blinding rain the whole way. After we got in and watched the news we heard there were 70mph wind gusts, and I believe it!
Anyway - it had started to rain by the time we got home Tuesday night so I didn't get to take any pictures of my plants until Wednesday morning - after they had been beaten down by the rain. :( I'm sure after the rain on Wednesday night they look even worse for the wear.
Still lots of iris buds waiting to bloom out.
I'm sure these were really pretty Tuesday afternoon
The dogwood tree is almost completely bloomed out
I even have quite a few leaves coming out on the hydrangea!
I know this was much prettier Tuesday afternoon - I hate that I missed it. (it is what I see out my kitchen window when doing dishes.)
I've finally managed to get my reader count to (just) below 200, but I'm afraid I will be way behind again by Monday. I'm going to a stitch retreat this weekend so I will be away from the computer for the next few days. I promise I will get caught up one of these days!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
