So, day’s drive southwest of here everything is so dry they have wildfires eating the countryside. In contrast, the Ozarks have received bunches of rain and we are now experiencing flooding. It is so wet here that we can’t mow the lawn and the grass is really taking advantage of it. In some places it is well over the 8″ limit that our fair city believes is the appropriate height for a lawn.
In the past five days, it has rained through four of them. Total accumulation in those five days was 7.75 inches. That’s a little over 20 cm for the rest of you.
My weeds are rank. The asparagus is going nuts. I walk past the raspberry bed and wonder if raspberries drown. . .
But the sun is out this afternoon. I can hear the weeds growing.
I’ve been playing in my art journal.
