Because my community rocks. :D

Here's a photo of one of the downed trees from last weeks storm. I now have a portion of it on my deck that I am using as a stool come flower pot holder thing. I know, kinda white trashy, but I don't care. It's still my house, I can do what I want. :D

Good photos of my garden are coming soon.  To give you an idea of before/after, here's a photo (stolen from Hubs Facebook of what the garden looked like right after we got the beds completely made and just planted everything. You can kinda sorta see the cages and trellis if you know where to look for them, but that's about it. Most of the plants were just little baby seeds at this point.  You can also see the beginning milkweed plants coming in on the far side. We has butterfly's and don't want to take away their food source.  The far right of the garden is transplanted lily's, a rose bush, and hollyhocks. One of the lily's just started blooming yesterday so I'll try and get pics tonight. It's gorgeous! Next year we're going to move all of them out of the garden and in to other beds we just made this summer. I'm excited. :)

We had a major storm yesterday that totally swept through our area. I was stuck at work for literally 4 hours with absolutely NO power, and yet my boss wouldn't let any of us leave since it was supposed to come back on at Any. Minute. Not that any of us asked if we could leave; we knew better, but still -

Four hours!!!!!

I never twiddled my thumbs in the dark so much in my life. :(((

Of course, not only did the storm totally ruin my morning, it completely annihilated some of my lily's AND bent my corn completely over.  We tamped the corn back up as best we could, but some of the lily's were completely done for. One of them that I just got from my Grandma was completely snapped in half.

I didn't take a picture of it. Too painful.

But here's my corn mid-fixing, and some of the lily's that partially survived. I'll have better photos of everything else later. Everything in cages and/or trellised survived just fine as did my onions and pumpkin vines. So thankful! My little green tomatoes were all like "yo, what's up? Still here, still hanging. Good times, good times." :D

At the bottom you can see how far the corn got tipped, this was the initial tipping "back" more towards upright.

Don't mind the weeds. I hate weeding. LOL Weeds have feelings, too!

*pant pant* Wow, what a wild ride. I think I'll just rest here a spell.
