No pictures this morning, my friends ... we've had one humdinger of a storm and my hands have been full comforting a anxious and scared little blonde dog. A Thundershirt can only do so much for her when the thunder and lightning are right on top of us ... even the usually blase' Loki kitty is restless. I can hear him and his less-than-delighted-to-be-awakened-so-early human overhead. Since I did a fair amount of planting yesterday, I'll be interested to see how the newly installed trees, shrubs and perennials fared during all this. I had hoped for rain to water them in but not quite this much!
