Re: weather


Have you considered a rain garden? These are plantings specifically designed to deal with stormwater runoff. I have attended talks on them at a number of MG and native plant conferences. Take a look at this website:

that is one of the first things we do! We even thought of putting a small
bridge over the area so we can still visit in spring and fall without
sinking knee deep in mud or water. We've had it re-graded three times on
our dime already to "fix" the problem with absolutely no success. If the
road bed were not raised above our property level (which used to be below
our grade,) the water would simply run off across the street and into the
little creek behind the houses across the street. The township decided to
"fix" the grade when they put in sewers. UGH! Of such is life.

I recall a lovely "dry stream" bed featured in a gardening magazine (I'll
look it up if you're interested) to take care of flash flooding between two
property lines.

I guess that means more rain is on its way here, huh, Donna? We've got
flood warnings and our gutters haven't been able to keep up with the
deluge.
There is a small "river" between property lines, the low areas are
overflowing and even the walkway to the porch has 1/2 thick water pouring
over it. We haven't gotten to the point of a rain like the 100 years
flood
levels for the area, but it can't be too far off with the ground already
at
saturation. And we will be in the Mid 60's today! UGH!!! It should be
colder tomorrow, but not freezing until Monday. We'll see.


I'm not sure what water saturated earth will do to the dormant plants and
those that have broken dormancy because of this warm spell. Anybody out
there know?


Blessings,

You take care of your self Judy.. the flu that is around here is a .....

Currently raining here... a tad earlier it was pouring and I kept

and not snow... or I would be shoveling instead of typing...

Happy New Year!
It snowed Monday & Tuesday & didn't all melt. Snowing again today so
we
may
be having our 2 weeks with snow now. Winter blooming heathers were in
bloom
the week before Christmas, so I will look for them again as soon as
the
white stuff melts. I've had a lovely week off. Supposed to work today,
but
have called in sick. Icky flu or some such. So, I'm taking it easy,
watching the parade on HGTV. Also feeling guilty that someone else has
to
work for me. Stay healthy.
