I love living in a valley most of the time. We have beautiful views of the mountains year round. However, when the wind whips through our little valley, I dream of living in a less aerodynamic terrain. It is not uncommon to have wind gusts in excess of 70 miles an hour and the dust devils and unpredictable wind shifts can do quite a bit of damage. This time all of our benches were picked up and turned over:
Another UFO (Unidentified Flowering Object). I am still trying to identify some of the plants that were here when we moved in. You all have been so helpful in the past, so I thought I would include a picture of this bush. It is actually about 6 feet high and 3 feet wide.
I am continually amazed by the strength and endurance of the plants on our property. Every week I am overjoyed by some plants survival or recovery. How are your plants doing? Hopefully they are not having to work quite as hard as mine to survive!
Tomorrow I will share what is blooming in my garage and how my vegetable garden survived the storms.
