Since I shared wild flowers from the prairie earlier this week I thought I better share some pictures of my yard flowers.
When I got my garden plants I saw these beauties. I have them in the back yard and look at them through the bay window.
Haying was going good. It’s been hot and dry enough to make good hay, even though it’s more humid than normal. On Tuesday evening we had all the dry hay in a bale and a severe weather headed our way.
Around 8:30 Tuesday evening we got .92″ of rain in a short amount of time; it was a downpour. We were very lucky as there was no hail or damage to our place.
Unfortunately, a tornado did go through the ranch south of us. The house is standing and the outbuildings are gone or damaged. There was also tornado or straight wind damage to a ranch northwest of us.
We had cattle break through the fence during the storm. While getting them back and fixing fence J and I found the track of the tornado. We could see that the tornado came out of the west neighbors pasture, through the fence (which we repaired), then through the pasture our cattle are in as it moved to the neighbor’s homestead. It was interesting to follow the track.
Have you had any severe weather in your area?
