With the sun shining and temperatures above 50, I decided to walk out and survey the actual garden damage – which netted some uplifting news.

Three peppers survived, thanks to the hail knocking down the lids of the #10 cans that had been placed around them at transplanting:

And I mis-reported previously – the white flowers are peonies, not roses (flowers are not my strong point) – those bushes not only have blooms but are full of buds ready to go forth and beautify:

On the plus side, not all the seed I had planted of various things had emerged from the last new moon planting phase.   Take a gander at the soybeans that made their appearance after Friday’s storm:

And always heartening to see how petrified wood survives the chaos around it:

All in all, very grateful for Mother Nature’s reminders to keep your chin up, nothing is ever a total wash and miracles do happen.
