First Eye Candy Friday


My first Eye Candy Friday!

Not much going on in our yard as we are currently in a drought situation here in my part of Alabama. We are currently 19-20 inches behind on rain!! There have been numerous forest fires and no rain anywhere in the near future!!

I did have a few Lenten roses left in my pathetic little flower bed....that is pretty much it in the way of flowers!! Lot's of dead, brown grass and blowing brown leaves on the ground!!
A few Hostas came up this year...but not all.
Despite the drought...there are a few hardy weeds...at least they are flowering weeds!! LOL!!

It's raining right now here. We need it, but I would share it with you all if I could. I see on tv that the Midwest has lots of flooding ... we should find a way to harness & move that water to the areas that need it more, right? Have a good weekend!

Pretty flower. Ugh, I can't believe I'm saying this, but I hope it rains soon!

I heard on the news this morning that there's 50% chance of rain tomorrow. Not that they know anything!

My Lenten Rose is all bloomed out. I think your weed might be chamomile.

I think we've had the rain you're missing, but we're in for a sunny weekend for a change. I'm always surprised at how fast things dry out,

I'll be more than happy to send some of the rain from OK to you. It has been raining for the past 2 wks. Now we do need rain but not to the point of flood warning. Thx for sharing and your Hostas are beautiful ~ I need to go and take a pic of mine. Have a great weekend. ;D

It's been very dry here too. Even our weeds aren't looking that good.

Your Lenten rose flower is beautiful and I love that variety of Hosta. I also have a couple of Hostas with just 2 inch leaves. Hopefully that rain we had Friday night will help!
