No Rain, Just Heat.....
Still clearing pile after pile of debris left from storm a couple weeks ago.
I keep having to make new piles because stuff keeps falling from the old Oaks as it dries up.
Still waiting for home insurance guy to check out damage from fallen Oak to kids' house next door-----can't move any of the debris 'til he checks it out----makes my fingers itch, seeing all those limbs and dried-up leaves in their back yard.
At least the timber was sold off from the lower drive entrance, but----again, itchy fingers wanting that debris GONE-----they were able to cut a hole just wide enough for vehicles to squeeze through, so they can use it. I guess the insurance guy is really doing double-time right now....
The little Shade Garden I planted for my DD along her picket-fenced backyard is partly spared by a stump holding up half of the huge Oak just waiting to smush the rest----I keep thinking of sneaking up there when they're not home and trying to snitch some of the Mothers' Day plantings from underneath the Oak that I planted in there over the years! ---What if I sneeze and that half rolls off the stump? ----Use what's left of me to fertilize a Sun Garden!!!! Guffaw!
In the meantime, it's just so HOT---no rain. I try to water what I can after the sun goes down---it almost seems like a futile effort. I've brought up load after load of well-rotted leaf mulch to help hold in moisture, but this is killing heat. I haven't even let any of the in-house cats outside---they're sick of being cooped up, but high humid 90's is too hot. The outside cats just take shelter and stay quiet.
The birds look forward to dips in the birdbaths every day.
So, how are you faring in your neck of the woods?
Any RAIN anywhere?
