Rain, Rain Go Away

We have had sooooo much rain this spring that it is really dampening my spirits! Rainy days equal no spray painting outside; thus my home improvement projects have been few and far between. But all this moisture is also having an affect on my surroundings outside. While the grass is a little greener than usual, my flowering bushes are the most sparse I have even seen.
Last year my "snowball" bush was huge and laden with blooms.This year I wondered if it was half dead. But upon closer inspection it's just shriveled and sad, with smaller blooms and ugly brown spots.Last year my homegrown bouquet was abundant with blossoms.This year I gathered a small cluster of blooms, determined to not let the rain shrivel my spirits as much as it has shriveled my bushes. It may be smaller than last year's but it's still just as beautiful!

Same sort of thing is happening with my Hydrangeas. Lots of bloom, and they are beginning to open, but the blooms are much smaller. Still, thankful they are surviving.

We in south Texas have the opposite problem. We've had only a couple of inches or rain since Christmas. We are listed as in an Exceptional Drought. The only UP side in no mosquitoes!
