Chris and I were talking about the amount of rainfall we have had this season and we think that the rain has provided us with the best year of monks hood we have ever seen. The monks hood flowers are the purple flowers in the picture above. They are growing like crazy, of course, everything is growing like crazy. Everyone is posting about mowing their lawns, Chris has not been able to play with his new weed eater as much as he would like to. It has been way to wet. I thought I would tally up the rainfall for the months of Jan. - July. It is a rough tally but the number I came up with is a little over 68" of rainfall. That is not including snowfall. We received over 30" of rain in June and July alone. We did get rain yesterday and it is currently raining now. The high yesterday was 68º with a low of 50º.
