Good News and Bad News.

The good news is we received much needed rain.

The bad news is… hail came with it. For those of you in other climates; hail is pellets of ice that form when updrafts in thunderstorms carry raindrops to high altitudes, where the water freezes and then falls back to Earth.

I stood on the porch during the melee and took a few pictures…

In the above picture you can see how parched the grass is in the background behind my daylillies.

This will certainly set the crops back.

This growing season is off to a tumultuous start: cool late spring, drought, frost last week and now this.

What next ? Sheese !

    Sorry you are having such a difficult start to the growing season. We have had gales and heavy rain here – very unseasonal. Blew over my little greenhouse during the night but thankfully I managed to rescue the majority of plants and put them back in their pots. Hope the weather settles for you now and your crops recover quickly.
