Our part of NC did not see any effect from Andrea, but another front has decided to linger and pelt us with more rain that we need. I wouldn't mind so much, but the last of our strawberries are lying in fields too wet to harvest. Bummer!
It rained on and off all weekend and this morning is damp and foggy. The sun came out for a few minutes yesterday and I ran out to take a picture of some Mountain Laurel. We have it all over our woods and it is spectacular this year. Alas, I took only two pictures and the sun disappeared and the rain started again. Fortunately we have a screened porch and we can look out into the woods to see the laurel even in the rain.
This tall, skinny Mountain Laurel is in the front yard.
Here's a closer look at the bird sitting beneath the laurel.
We continue to have flash flood warnings with occasional rockslides and fallen trees. We have a 60% chance of more rain today, then the odds drop to 30% for the rest of the week.
On a positive note; everything is lush and green and we definitely don't have to water anything, not even the herbs on the deck.
