We were hit with a hail storm last night - pea to marble sized hail that was inches deep in spots. Here's some pix of what it did to some of my poor plants:
I'm hopeful that most of this will survive and come back. The iris, while badly battered, will for sure be back next season. I may have to replant my tomatoes and I think I'll go ahead and harvest the rhubarb and get it in the freezer. My car was not damaged and the greenhouse window survived just fine even though I thought for sure the hail was going to crack it. Once things dry out a bit, I'll get the broom out and compost all the leaves. The joys of living in Colorado in the springtime - at least it wasn't several inches of snow! Don't laugh - it's happened in May before.
Thanks for visiting!
