No it isn't snowing.  It did hail.  I got pictures of the hail, the damage, and my beautiful roses that managed to survive. 

The drat comes from the fact that I did not notice my camera was set on video mode.  All my great pictures are actually 8 second videos.  That is a drat.  I had some beautiful rose photos.  I tried again today, but it wasn't the same.

I also can't show you the before and after of my vegetable garden.  You can't believe how destroyed it looked after the hail storm.  Now...

It is slowly coming back.  I'm very happy.  A long time ago we had a terrible hail storm.  I was so depressed about my flowers.  In the end the flowers were amazing.  The hail had pruned them, which is something I am always hesitant to do.

Just because things seem bad in the beginning, don't assume the worst.  

Despite the hail, it looks like the garden is doing fine.  Maybe I need to take my drat back.  

Do you get a lot of hail where you are?  Whet is your biggest weather woe.


  1. I am so glad your garden wasn't destroyed. Its so pretty. Heat has to be the worst thing on my garden. We do get hail but not until August. By then my garden is very tired. Have a lovely week.

  2. What is that purple flower? Stunning. Weather woes here are lack of rain. Beginning of drought conditions. But at least we don't have the excessive heat that places in midwest and south face.

  3. Oy! Your flowers always look beautiful! I hope it's a case of pruning and they come back robust.

  4. The dry weather is our biggest woe at the moment. You could pull some photos from your video,
