Well it's too darn wet to venture out into the garden so I'm spending time checking out old garden photos. I took this picture this past weekend. I'm assuming this is Sweet Autumn Clematis. It grows wild along the fringes of our backyard. I think it's just lovely and the sweet scent is delicate. I may have to figure out a place to put it near our deck, so we can enjoy it better.
Rain from Gustav... we are still dealing with it but I have high hopes that we may see some sun today. It looks like we got another 3.5 inches between yesterday evening and this morning. I'm estimating we've seen 9 inches since Monday night. Too much more rain and we risk having the tall trees keeling over. You know, where the weight of the tree is too much for the root system. It's happened before around here and most likely is happening somewhere nearby as I write. And by the way, the leak on our wall has gotten a lot worse. But it's only a wall!
