Miss Flo

High on the low spot of a North Carolina mountain top the hurricane was a non-event.




















There was no wind to speak of.




















The three or four inches of rain we got felt like just another long rainy day of which there have been so many this year. Rot and leaf blight is abundant. The Lush doesn't care. It grows on.




















This has been a wet year. All things considered the floppage in the Tall Flower Meadow is at expected levels without any crushing weather event. That is pretty perky for all this wet.




















I have not had the heart yet to cut the flowering stems crossing the paths. I don't mind and can push my way through easy enough. No guests are planned until the Sisters arrive in late October.




















That is enough time for the weather to change everything before I get the urge to clear the paths for fall. Still plenty paths left open for strolling.

Good to hear you have had no undue calamity weather-wise.

It has been very, very dry here. Flower season is all over.

Such good news about the rain, and the lush looks great.
