Daily Pics #161.

Good morning on this another wet and stormy morning! Poor Muffin is not having a good time. We had some severe thunderstorms again last night, most of the night in fact. Now they have started again this morning. We are supposed to get another 2 inches of rain this morning and more throughout the day and tomorrow. So I’m enjoying my coffee indoors right now. Wow, that lightning hit close! Oddly Muffin is staying close to me right now instead of going under the bed. Not much wind in this storm which is kind of odd too. Lots of lightning and thunder however. And rain.

I went for a walk to the river yesterday afternoon. Didn’t think I would make it, but I did, though I managed to get very wet feet in the process. I have never seen so much water on that path. Even last fall when we had that record amount of rain, it still wasn’t this bad. But that rain came in smaller amounts too which helped. When you get 4 and 6 inches at a time it fills those low areas fast. I won’t be walking along there again until probably next week. The river was more than a foot higher than it was, likely be 2 feet today. There was one large white pine that had been blown down by the wind and is now partially lying in the river. I did see three families of geese down there and a family of ducks. Terrible that I will need to stay away for another week right now. Oh well, let’s take a look at some nice flowers now…

In the above pic are some lilacs, this is the most common color around here, but there is also dark purple and white. This color however, has the nicest scent of them all.

And in the above pic are bleeding hearts. These were a very common flower in gardens years ago apparently but don’t seem to be very popular now. They are a very hardy flower for our climate. There we have our pics to hopefully bring a little sunshine into your day. I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

    • Good morning Pene! I think the storms have finally stopped, just rain now.
      Thanks Pene! The flowers are not looking quite so nice at the moment, but they will perk up once the rain stops. That’s what we need here, some hot weather to dry the ground now. But we are getting much cooler weather, a high of 65 today and only 53 for tomorrow. Not very good drying weather!
      I hope you have a wonderful day!πŸ˜€πŸ˜ΊπŸŒžπŸŒ§πŸŒ§
