    Its been a while but now that we have our new computer it seems i can. Its been very hot and humid here in IL and we've been getting plenty of rain. The garden is thriving, but many of the fields around here are flooded as are many roads. We have water on our road, but luckily there are 2 ways to get to town from here. Hope everyone is having a good summer, now that i can post i'll try to come back more often., Take care..phyllis

    Hi Phyllis,

    Seems like everyone is getting their share of rain. We're having thunder everyday and sometimes rain with it. So we have to mow more often now. My grandson does a good job. I have a wire fence around my wisteria so he know where it is! Glad to hear we'll hear from you again!

    Hi Phyllis, Glad you're able to post again. The board has been very slow lately. Doesn't seem like there are many of us around any more.

    I'm hoping we'll get some cooler weather soon. They're predicting high 70's and low 80's later this week so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. It's been high 80's and low 90's with high humidity the last week or so.

    We haven't had much rain at all. Most of the storms seem to go to the north of us so we're watering almost every day.

    Hope everyone has a good week.

    Hi Phillis,
    Glad you have your new computer. I hope the rain doesn't do too much damage. This has certainly been a weird year for weather to say the least.

    We have had the hottest June on record. We did get a brief downpour today, which helped a bit with the parched ground.

    Take care ALL
