You could say we are getting some rain. It has been raining now for 3 days

This is the day after the ditch went over its banks the Holly hocks didn't mine at all

but the poor Irises didn't do as well

This is just before it went over Sunday, it rained so hard we watched

as the water came up and over.

This is how it got out to the street in our side yard. No water got in the house.I will just have to do some work on the Iris bed but there are people that are losing there homes from the floods of rivers and lakes in Arkansas and Missouri it is bad.

The rains have been horrendous once again this year, almost a year to the day we suffered the worst flood in Nashville's history.
I see you will having some clean up around the garden, I hope your plants had steadfast roots !
Bring on the sunshine :)

This has been one weather situation after another this year and winter. I see snow it still falling in parts of the country. Floods in other areas and tornado outbreaks. Ya'll stay safe.

I sure sympathize with you and what you are going through. That's all we've had this season. Hard to even find a day to mow grass it's so bad, but nothing like you are getting.

This has been the wettest spring so far. I know how you feel Patsy. Some of my plants are liking it and some others not so much. I hope it stops soon.
