Oh wow!!!  Two posts in one day.....what am I thinking?! ;)

Storms Continue, but the Garden is Loving It!


If you live on planet Earth, you already know Oklahoma has experience yet another tornado or two....maybe three in the last couple of weeks.  One of which has been updated to an EF-5 with a width of 2.6 miles wide, making it the widest tornado ever documented.


And it seems like we are now living in a Rainforest atmosphere!  (Weird)
 


But, what you probably don't know is how this (awesome) weather is effecting the garden!
 
 So, here are a few pictures and most of these are a week old and need to be update (but it's raining...AGAIN).
 
Kentucky Pole Beans 2 weeks ago......
 
 
The same beans, 8 days later!
 
 

Another view of the green beans.

All of the plants are doing amazingly well.  They are loving this energy charged weather!

Here are a few other pictures from the "treehouse" area ~

One of my Rosemary plants with a couple of garden friends.

The big o'orange frog is home to a periwinkle this year instead of his normal fern plant.
 
 
The new Mandevilla plant (I hope that's spelled correctly).
This is looking toward the garden from the treehouse area.  You can see the herbs in the washing machine tubs are going crazy with new growth!  To the left of the tubs, you can see the tomato and pepper plants.

My sweet sister painted the bird house as a gift many moons ago!  The wrens love it!

So, as they say ~ Every cloud has a silver lining!

Just have to look for it ~

Please continue to pray for those who have suffered due to the storms!

Blessings,
