new garden photos…

what can I say….at least the roof is still on the house…I only have a little water in my basement…my neighbors had big trucks over today sucking the water out of theirs…and that is before this last storm…my siding, roof and window trim are damaged and that can all be fixed….the flowers will also grow back…at least it all looked glorious for a few days… I have proof and good memories..and I will not have to worry about the watering while I’m away in Long Beach….LB

a whole new look....

  1. Oh my god Lisa! What a mess….you said it was bad and the photos confirm that. You must be just sick.

  2. Wow…!!! Sad to see this and thank goodness you had the pics from last weekend! Unbelievable to get hail in July in Wisconsin???!!! Enjoy your trip.

  3. Oh my gosh Lisa! I am so sorry! All that work… sigh. Your yard was totally gorgeous. You did a fabulous job and I am glad the garden walk was a success.

    This storm stayed north of us so we lucked out.

    Thankfully, no one was hurt AND that you took plenty of photos of the BEFORE…who would have thought? Like you said, it will grow back. Raedene

  5. How devastating! Your garden was so beautiful in the photos. So sad about all the exterior damage but hopefully cosmetic and the water damage inside minimal. Not the best send-off for a trip but your positive attitude will shine through. Enjoy Long Beach.

  6. AND THAT IS WHY YOU HAD THE GARDEN WALK. I FEEL SO BAD FOR YOU BUT AM GLAD YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ARE ALL FINE. ENJOY YOUR TRIP TO THE WEST COAST.

  7. Oh WOW Lisa!! can’t believe that is the same yard from the pics from the garden walk. glad nobody got hurt. We could see that storm passing just to the north of us. Looked very nasty!!!
    Have a great time in California!!! Hows the retreat house coming???

  8. Oh my goodness, that’s some hail!! Gardening can be heartbreaking! That’s why we stitch flowers in quilts, right?! Enjoy Long Beach…it’s where I was born and lived until we moved to Idaho:<)

  9. OMG! I am so bummin for you… That hail was nasty. What day was this? We had a storm on Saturday but it just rained a ton and took some trees out – no hail or anything too drastic (except for our power being out!!) Hope Long Beach goes well!
