Two weeks ago, the hibiscus garden was covered with rushing floodwaters.

After the water receded, I picked the left-behind flood detritus off the plants. I rinsed the leaves off with buckets of (clean) water to clear off the creek crud, propped them up from where they had gotten beaten against the ground, and hoped they would come back next year.

This morning?:

And in other yard news:

The deer won't even eat the fruit.

Anybody want some crabapples? I've got PLENTY.
