Rainy night in Iowa

Rainy night in Iowa. Strong storms were predicted but so far just a little lightning and thunder and an inch of rain. Made for a noisy Mass tonight. Perfect ending to a nice week. We spent a couple of days with our daughter and son-in-law in Bondurant. They have a very productive garden and were willing to share the produce. Couldn’t pass up a deal like that. Plus we had a chance to visit with the grandkids before they get busy with jobs and college life. Dan and Tammy both have very green thumbs. Dan's tomato plants are 8 ft tall and there are 28 of them.

The fence is to keep the tomato loving black lab, Lucy, from eating all she can reach.

Fresh from the garden plus freshly made salsa.

 It rained while we were there, too. And windy and cold the next day. But we were still able to go outside and enjoy checking out the vegetable garden, flower gardens and the huge prairie garden. It has gotten so thick since the spring burn that you can’t walk through the prairie garden this time of the year.

Always room for more plants.

It was a fun, relaxing time.

Hope you all had a great week and an even better one coming up.
