We’ve had a lot of rain in the past 24 hours…not much to see in the gardens but a lot of leaf debris.
The storms last nights were intense! Lightening strikes and strong winds broke a lot of trees. My Jonagold apple tree took a beating…the canopy collapsed under the storm (kind of hard to see the broken limbs in this picture). Some severe pruning will take place this winter.The sturdy Royal Standard Hosta, one of the few perennials still remaining in my yard, stood up well through it all.
