It's not enough that we only have 4 months of the year when we can GROW anything. Last night at 4 am it hailed for a half hour, stones the size of peas and quarters, and completely demolished my garden. That used to be lettuce, salad greens and corn in the first picture, begonias in the second, petunias in the third and geraniums in the fourth. I wish now I had taken a pic of the flowers yesterday - they were in full bloom and I was sitting on the deck admiring them
Luckily I was able to save the peppers and tomatoes I have in pots on the deck! They got enough protection up against the house covered with deck chairs. If you can see the little ironing board poking around the side there in the window that's open, that's what I used to cover my head with while I ran around dragging stuff to safety.

~ A woman was sipping on a glass of wine, while sitting on the patio with her husband. She says, "I love you so much, I don't know how I could ever live without you". Her husband asks, "Is that you or the wine talking?"...She replies, "It's me ... talking to the wine.
Thanks guys. We are lucky it wasn't a lot worse - many people have basements completely flooded, cars submerged in their parking lots, really bad stuff. Our basement only has a little bit of water and some sand that got washed in through a crack.
On the bright side, this means MORE trips to the garden center
Wow that is awful! If it makes you feel any better we are attempting to garden this year...and got 10 straight days of 110 degree weather (that's about 30 degrees above avg for us) and everything was scorched. We attempted to run sprinklers and it literally evaporated faster than it soaked into the ground. So we are right there with you. Posted via Mobile Device
