Garden Tuesday: Still Flowers!

My first dogwood tree is flowering. It's pinker than this, but that's the best I could do in the rain.

And this azalea looked dead last year! It had no leaves, and certainly didn't flower; I didn't bother to have it dug up. Good thing, because I guess it just wanted a vacation!

Now, if only the rain would stop...we were without power until 4 this afternoon, which is not a good way to make my household happy. Thor has been whining for hours, and can finally sleep. You all know dogs need electricity, right?

It has rained for days and today it's finally sunny...of course my daughter is sick with a bad tummy and we can't go outside. UGH!

I would be so pissed!

The rain ruined my azaleas, minus the pink one that is still small enough to be almost completely sheltered by the eaves...

Yours is stunning though!

Funny, our rose bush had a single rose last year and this year it's covered. Didn't realize plants needed vacations, too.
