Wet, Wet, Wet

After three days of rain (including ice on Sunday/Monday), it has finally stopped this afternoon.  It is still very overcast but I just had to get out a little.  Both the dog and I were beginning to get a case of cabin fever.  I put her on the leash and out we went.


I just walked around the yard seeing what the ice damaged.  All the daffodils which were so pretty are bent over on the ground.  The camellias  also took a hit with the flowers turning dark.  What a shame because they were so pretty.  One of the bushes that the flowers seem a bit more hardy still have some pretty flowers.


All of the rain has been a boom to all kinds of fungi.  This one particular stick had several kinds growing on it that I thought was quite interesting.  I like all of the subtle colors and shapes.  With the projected warmer weather over the next couple of days things should come to life.

Pretty flower and really weird fungi. I wondered if your area ended up with ice. We didn't get ice, just LOTS of rain. Sounds like some sun is heading our way.

We got a thin layer of ice and I just could not believe it. Yep, I am so tired of rain. I thought the fungi was sort of cool too.
