Tonight, Baltimore County is under a tornado warning, and here in the western panhandle of Maryland, we have been receiving heavy rainstorms every few hours.
My poor little cottage-garden-in-progress now resembles a wetland swamp. All that I need are a few alligators!
A muddy river flowing through an Amazon rainforest? Ah, nope, it’s just my flooded garden.
My stepping stone path has become a muddy river flowing through a jungle of garden plants.
Even a rainstorm brings out the beauty in my garden… and I couldn’t resist getting soaked to capture a few shots.
My tiny English Daisies are finally beginning to bloom! :)
It’s a good thing that Allysum loves to be wet!
We have tiny lakes in the grass… with clover floating on the water surface like miniature lily-pads.
Last night, sadly, a severe thunderstorm brought down our dying cherry tree. We had been discussing its removal recently, and I had researched to see whether or not it could be saved, but Mother Nature ultimately judged against our tree.
Our backyard is now a blank canvas, albeit a soggy one.
I really should incorporate a dry creek bed into my woodland plans. ;)
