Hello, I have missed everyone!
I have not had internet since last Sunday afternoon. It has been raining, raining and raining. Today is sunshine and blue skies! Yes!
Sunday our son and his family invited us over to their place to pick sour cherries! Our old farm had a cherry tree and our oldest son bought me one this year for my birthday, but it only gave me about 15 cherries. Not big enough for a cobbler! Anyway we stayed for dinner and then we noticed a storm was coming in, so we thought we better get home which is about 40 minutes away. Our daughters started off first in their car. We were not far behind. They called and said that torrential rain was hitting them and would soon be hitting us. We had to turn off the side of the road, because you couldn’t even see. We found out yesterday that some of the power poles came down, right where we had been driving. Thank you Heavenly Father for your protection! It was all kind of scary and it was really hard for me as a momma to have the girls driving in it.. I thought I would show you what it looks like south of our farm 1/2 mile away. Our farm is up on a hill, so we were not affected at all by Peace Creek. We did get a little over 6” total from all the rain though. We are very thankful!
Our neighbors horses were stranded on an island of sorts.
Look how the creek has gone over the road? I am not sure if you can see the black dot half way up the right hand side of the picture and about 1/2" in? This is where we took pictures of the little baby calf. About 4 feet high of water.
Another Kansas wild prairie flower.
My garden has faired very well, where we had the paper and mulch down. The little watermelon plants are growing away! The tomatoes are huge, after this last rain. It amazes me how God’s water is so much better, then water from a hose!
Blessings and hugs from the farm,
