I'm interrupting the tour of the Flower Show for an important weather declaration -
WHERE IS SUMMER???!!!
Sorry for shouting, but those of us in the Northeast have had it with all the rain and cool weather. The past 2 days we've experienced torrential downpours and flash flood warnings.
During the month of June we've had only 8 rain free days and most of those days weren't even sunny. Both my perennial and vegetable gardens are flooded. The containers are a mess. Flowers are broken, plants are soggy, stems fallen all over the ground and snapped. There's debris everywhere and of course there's weeds, weeds, and more weeds. Fungus and disease abounds and it's difficult to spray because the rain won't stop long enough to allow it. It seems like all my hard work has gone down the drain - quite literally indeed. I haven't been out to take pictures because it bothers me so. My poor little Ellie has been shaking in fear for the past two days from the bowling sounds of thunder.
If that's not enough there's a late blight warning in effect for my area. One of my favorite New England bloggers - Cathy over at Skippy's Garden has a very informative post about it.
You can also check out this video from our local news station to get a taste of our current weather conditions.
Either the sun had better come out soon or I'm building an ark and getting out of here!
Thanks for giving me a moment to vent.... I feel better now... I think.
