Monsoon in the Mountains
Almost seven inches of rain has fallen here in three days, giving this area a 20″ surplus for the year so far. Otter Creek is once again over its banks. More rain means more flowers, and I found an unusual variety of orange day lily with triple petals in the blossoms. The less showy Carolina Rhododendrons are finally blooming along the creek. The waterfall below my woods is very active today.
In the cornfield at the bottom of Otter Creek, the Morning Glories are once again entwined with the green stalks.
