What A Week It's Been At Clay and Limestone!

Cardamine diphylla
Torrential rains, 65 miles per hour wind,  trees down all over the neighborhood and no cable for two days!  Did I mention that we had company, too?  Well, it's time to get back to normal. I've a garden to clean up, posts to write and blogs to read. 

It's good to be back and I can't wait to visit with you all!

  5. Gail glad you had no major damage. It was a wicked line of storms. Hasn't Nashville had enough with the flood last year? Got an e-mail from North Florida with eight trees down on one property and them feeling lucky with only minor roof damage.

  12. The Cardamine, at least, seems to be unbowed and with an air of defiance.
    Glad all returning to normal.

  13. Oh my, that sounds like the weather we had here at the end of March. Glad to hear your power is restored. I hope the garden cleanup isn't too involved.

  14. Hi Gail, gosh 65 mile an hour winds.....I hate strong winds, they bother me.
    Hope your garden did not have any serious damage?

    We are in the middle of a mini heatwave. It reached 22C (74F), very warm for this time of year.
    Temperatures should be around 11C (53F)..........

  17. Hi Gail, You've been missed! Our Sunday's temperature was 82(!)degrees F. Unbelievable! I was sure there'd be a tornado. Sorry to hear about your distressing weather... Glad you're okay and your Cardamine diphylla is beautiful!!

  18. By the way, I visited a USDA site to see where the crinkleroot grows. You should see their map! All east and around Iowa - but little Iowa is without... wonder why?

  19. Gail, As I looked at the scary red splotch over Tennessee earlier this week, I did think of you and Frances, and am so glad you are safe and well. That photo is amazing as is the plant :)

  21. I've never heard of cardamine but it's beautiful!! We got the tail end of your weather and my cherry tree lost most of its blooms. At least you didn't get any tornadoes! Glad you're safe! :o)

  23. I am glad to hear that you haven't had any damage from the high winds. We have had them too. This spring seems to be dominated by the wind.

  26. I was worried watching the front rip through, dear Gail. Delighted all is OK. Your company will certainly have memories ...

  27. Those winds were incredible, weren't they? I hate to hear about the damage they cause, but I can't help but love them anyway. Did you read A Wrinkle In Time as a child? "Wild nights are my glory!" - Mrs. Whatsit

  31. Dear Gail,
    Not because I have wanted to, but I am so behind with visiting and now trying to catch up. What a delicious plant and photo. I hope you did not loose any trees and that all is well with your lovely garden again.
