More Rains And Flooding

We are certainly stuck in a rainy weather pattern. A few hot and humid days then stormy weather returns. This morning I emptied an overflowing rain gauge filled with 5 inches of rain.

It will be a few days before I have to mow!!

Outlet at McPherson State Fishing Lake.  A 46 acre fishing lake just west of Maxwell Wildlife Refuge built in 1954.

Impassable low water crossing due to the release of the fishing lake.

Of course I had to stop and take pictures of the wildflowers.

Turn Around – Just south of Hobbs Creek Road, Saline County, KS

We are certainly needing some hot dry windy days so the farmers can get into the fields to harvest.  Praying for them.

    Forget mowing — what about paddleboarding? My word. That’s a lot of water. One of the little ironies of all our rain this year is that it’s made it difficult to find groups of wading birds. They’re scattered all over the agricultural fields!

    I found some of that orange milkweed blooming in east Texas this past weekend. We don’t see it down here, but it does come down into parts of Texas. So pretty!

      Good morning! I’ve always wanted to try a paddleboard! That’s the one you stand on and just paddle around on. I’m sure that’s what it would be like for me, or not. I have a feeling I would be falling off. I’ve seen videos of people doing yoga on them. One can dream.
      I have alot of the orange butterfly milkweed this year that was volunteer, but it was mostly yellow that I saw at the wildlife refuge.
      Have a wonderful day!!
