I didn't take any pictures this year. The water came to the same height. There was less debris and we have a long road of cleaning ahead but I figured that I'd rather not dwell on any of that. Instead, I am looking on the bright side of it all. Instead of flood pics, I figured I'd showcase the fact that the storm did NOT destroy the sunflowers that have started blooming. They are beauties too! I think I will be investing in the red sunflower seeds every year now.
We also have a very interesting volunteer this year. I had nothing to do with planting it but a very showy spider flower is about to bloom. I have to figure out how to propagate this sucker. If it got here on its own, it can't be that hard, right?
Stay tuned for the next project at the Tiny Bungalow: How to Install a Sump.
