Well, we had a bunch more rain last night and thunderstorms are expected today. My poor garden is like a sponge, just oozing water. It is flowing down the hill from the lake up above us, pouring out of the stone wall in a steady stream and flooding the yard. Not much I can do about it but divert it where I can with small sandbags and hope the sun visits us soon. Of course my flooding is nothing compared to what has happened in Europe and the flooding/catastrophes in the midwest. My thoughts and prayers are with all the families affected by the recent crazy weather. I hope things improve for everyone, where ever in the world you are.
I have a few quick pics from my garden, the pink peonies are just starting to open and are soooo lovely. Also, I thought I would share our tree man with you. We installed him on the tree when the boys were very small and now he is the keeper of the garden. He keeps monsters away and any other bad stuff the boys thought of as small children. Morgan still believes (a little) that there is a spirit inside the tree that keeps our house and garden safe. For children everything has the possibility of magic…I love that about my boys.
(You will notice that his mouth has some small screws holding it in place, it fell off this past winter when the old and very rusty nail gave up and disintegrated. My husband reinstalled it but now he looks a little vampirish! :))
