We just had our first big rain storm of the season and of the new year! The rain was pelting and the wind was howling. So much so that our "fence" blew over. Here's what happened.
Poor little avocado! She got knocked over into the HVAC!
The bamboo fence was great for the summer but when the wind came up it was obviously too flimsy to be held up with plastic chairs and beagle statues. My mother in law bought us that little ceramic beagle. At first I was sort of horrified by it...like "you want ME to put THAT in MY house?" but I think it looks cute in the garden.
This is a picture of about 7:30am. It's soooooooooooo dark! You can't really see the rain but the hillside was entirely saturated. I had to dig out a ton of leaves and mud from the french drains.
