Another  beautiful day is on the horizon.  The humidity has gone and cooler temps are here with a nice breeze.  How lucky we are.  Next week the humidity is back with temps in the 90’s.  Thats New England for you.

WATER, WATER EVERYWHERE

Croc's won't do in this weather

Croc’s won’t do in this weather

This week we had some terrible rains.  More than two inches came pouring down an hour.  It was in sheets and I spent the entire morning bailing out and digging more trenches.  Some mud and water came in the barn but not much.  My efforts saved the day

Lucy was wondering what was going on

. The best thing I did was to dig a trench on the side of the barn down to the end.

The garden flourished with the rain and it seems like the jewel weed grew a foot taller!!  It seems like this is how its going to be now, this summer we have not received many gentle rains, its comes down in torrents and dumps so much that there is flooding everywhere.  This is now the norm.

HAZEL AND MRS. BROWN

Hazel has really improved and is eating well again Mrs. Brown is laying an egg every day now and building elaborate nests.

SIDE YARD CHICHEN AREA

The Hops, Morning Glories and other flowers have outdid themselves this year.  I do hate the netting I have up though, and hope that next year I can put up the trellis work it will look nicer and be easier to walk under.

You really do seem to be battling the rain this year Carole! I’m glad you managed to save the barn this time anyway 🙂 x

The weather here has changed so much and winter is suppose to as bad or worse than last year. People here still believe that global warming doesn’t exist but the weather proves otherwise.
