A lot of heavy rain the last few days, and many of my neighbors are struggling with flooded basements right now — sympathies!
We’ve had some leakages; we’re going to need a new roof in not too many years, I think, but so far, have mostly survived okay. The extended gutter spouts we put in several years ago (dug into the yard and coming up further away from the house) seem to have helped significantly, so I mention that for your consideration.
And in the meantime, here’s the redbud tree — the heavy rain seems to have knocked down many blossoms a little early, so there’s a sea of pink on the ground. Rather lovely, I think.
