Lost at sea

I went from having nothing to say to having no time to say anything in the past couple of weeks.  I am going to try and make posts regularly again, though they may be shorter.  I see so many bloggers who make this promise.  So I guess I am not alone in having this problem.
Anyway, I am going to try and make it a regular part of my routine again.  I know my loyal reader will be pleased. Do let me know if you prefer more posts or newsier ones...
Today's post will be short. 

About this time last week, I noticed the area around my house that we laughingly refer to as the lawn, was a sea of yellow.  It happens every year.  I have come to accept it as part of life.  My husband sees it as a personal failing on his part that he can't get rid of them.

They make a nice contrast with the redbud tree, don't they?

Sadly, they are also the only blossoms in my big perennial bed right now.  

Then we had two days of heavy and somewhat unrelenting rain.  Hubby had mowed the lawn the morning before the deluge began.

This created a sea of a different kind.

Fortunately we are on high ground.  I cannot imagine what the poor people in the Penn Yan area are suffering after the storms hit them twice!

I heard reports that this kind of weather will be more common as our climate continues to change.  And still there are people who deny it.

I am grateful for:
the kind people caring for my aunt
the kittens are all doing well at last
wine o'clock
a very sweet reunion!
