What do we do with our sandbags? The fire department doesn’t want them back and they’re still wet – and heavy. I guess we’ll wheelbarrow them around to the hill in back where all the deer roam. When I say “we” I mean the gardener but he’s going to wait until they dry out a little. The good news is we never needed them after all because the rain didn’t get that close to the back door. The sun was out today and the hummingbirds are back… and the bees. I stood under our flowering pear tree today and could hear hundreds of bees inside. Here’s a picture of the tree.
