Rain, humidity and marigolds

5/23/2011 First Durango Marigold BloomWe’ve been experiencing fierce spring storms in Texas, with storm cells affecting most of the south and midwest US. When it’s not raining, it’s terribly humid, which of course feeds more storms. Unfortunately, having no a/c is miserable especially with the heat and humidity. Therefore, I haven’t spent much time out in the yard to putter around. What efforts I made in protecting the hostas, for instance, has been washed away. (Not to mention, all the grass seed we sowed last week.) So I’m relegated to sitting back and watching things grow.

My first Durango marigold bloom of the year happened on Sunday (or maybe Saturday)–a nice golden yellow bloom. Another Droid2 image capture, so image is not the best.
