Previous posts showed how low the water level was in our pond. This year we have received a very generous amount of rain. There is a pipe that takes excess water from this pond and empties it into the tank in our family’s pasture. But we got so much rain these past few weeks that one day the two ponds became one. It rained four inches in four hours.
The mosquitos are terrible. Last night I decided after dark to finish planting my rose bushes I received on Mother’s Day. I had already dug the ground but the soil was too wet and the holes filled with water as I dug deeper. I finished this project last night and although I did not get bit, I sure did feel them swarm around me. It’s nice to have a bush of rosemary growing. Rosemary seems to work well at keeping those bugs off my skin.
I am working on my Dallas photos next week for my “Dallas Finds” gallery on smugmug. Some will be posted here.
