Venturing out this morning into the sunshine after four days of intensive rain was simply lovely. The rain gauge boasted ten inches, and I joined in on a game of Pick-Up Stix .
The worst casualty was our Mexican Sunflower which measured out at fifteen feet tall. Root ball intact, we did our best to prop her back up.
I hope this won't traumatize her beautiful flower show in the fall. She stands, a bit disheveled yet proud.
