The rain last week was unreal - flash flooding, nonstop pouring rain for several days, roads closed, cars underwater. I kept singing songs from camp in my head - "It rained and poured for forty days-y days-y, drove those counselors_ nearly crazy crazy....." Well, it is drying out now and we have had no ill effects here, so we are very lucky. I went out today to get on the garden clean up, and decided to pull some of the seed heads off the marigold to save for next year. I've never seen anything like this - the seed heads got so much rain that the seeds in them started to sprout! Beware of what may grow in the next few weeks!
