Tuesday, while we were out shopping, there was a storm.
It was short lived, but had strong winds and hail.
We lost one of our apple trees :(
Upon further inspection, we discovered it was almost hollow
It has since been cut up and stacked to dry for firewood.
There were loads of branches to be picked up all over the yard.
Pails blown, flower pots blown over, and even the arbor was held in place only be the Wisteria vine.
Patio furniture was blown off the porch too, luckily none were damaged.
There were some people down the street who weren't so lucky.
Trees on houses, sheds, cars and powerlines.
Some lost their Hydro for 30 hours.
I was so thankful that I only lost 1 tree and a couple of potted plants.
I even have a few blooms left to share for Tootsies Fertilizer Friday!
Love these blue Balloon Flowers!
This Potentilla has been blooming since mid June!
The first Branched Coneflowers have opened
Sure is starting to feel like FALL!
