~~~A River Runs Through It!!~~~

 Good Sunday eveing! We had a BIG storm here early tonight. I got a shot, below of the clouds rolling in from the back deck. Joe and I were sitting out there having a drink when it started.
 The wind began to BLOW and leaves and branches started to fall!
 We went upstairs to our deck off the master bedroom to watch the storm.  This is the side yard, and this is where the septic guys went through to get to the back yard. It is all torn up but will be raked and seeded when the HEAT is gone.
 A river of rain was running down the side yard:(:(
 This area USED to have rhododrendrons and pachysandra covering it. NOW, it is bare and WET and MUDDY..... It is so sad to see this mess, BUT we will get it all cleaned up and looking better SOON.
Another chapter in this journey. XO, Pinky


  1. Think of of it as your own personal creek! Oh my! It will be all cleaned up soon amped all of this will just be a memory!

  2. You can send of that rain our way. We could really use a good soaking......Sarah

  3. Seems like we all had storms rolling thru! Sorry yours caused a muddy mess… an opportunity for new planting. Thanks for stopping by, Laura

  4. It makes me sick to see your beautiful yard like that.

  5. It seems like the weather has gone crazy, I wish we'd get some rain, but I don't want a storm either, they scare me to death.

    Thanks so much for your sweet comments and your prayers.

  6. Wow! That is a ton of rain. We started out the summer with no rain and lots of fires, and now we are getting cloudy days. Hope the home selling is going well. Joni

  7. Pinky,
    So~o~o sorry,dear friend...but we need rain so~o~o~o desperately here on the Prairie. Even the trees are turning brown. Wish I had some encouraging words...hang in there!

  8. that's a lot of water!!..So glad that you are all safe though!!...This summer weather has been crazy!

  9. Sorry about that, Pinky. But I know you can make it beautiful again...Christine

  10. Oh wow, a rain storm! I haven't seen one of those latelly around here, you see, there's a lot of rain in this parts, lots of water of course..but not now, it's sunny and beautiful spring weather, it'll start raining again in Sept. or Oct. Yeah, I hate the muddy side of rain! Good luck with the home selling darling. Thanks for your lovely visit dear Pinky!

  11. Thanks for stopping by! You asked about the blue and white ginger jar. I got it at Home Goods about a year ago.

    You sure had a crazy storm. And we can't get ANY rain here!

  12. Wow, I guess you do have a river now! I hope you can get that area looking good again! It's too bad all that excavation had to take place! I guess you got a bunch of that rain we had recently. We have a lot of sand around here so the water doesn't stick around too long!

  13. Hi Pinky! YOu really must have gotten a lot of rain! Hope you didn't loose power or anything!
    Thanks for popping in to see me.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  14. Sorry for all your bad weather, Pinky. Your yard will be beautiful again before you know it. Thanks again for stopping by my blog.

  15. Storms rolling in can create quite a mess. You will weather through it.

  16. We just had a big storm come through and we lost our trampoline! We are still finding springs in the yard :)

    Have a blessed and wonderful day!
