Had a bit of a flood last night while I slept. Worst one we have had here. Running water removed my landscape rocks and then deposited them where the garden used to be.
My soil is just gone.

Oh man. I’m so sorry!

It could have been lots worse

I really hate that. I hope your home wasn’t damaged. I feel bad for all your hard work and I know how expensive gardening is. Don’t give up there will be better day’s

Money isn’t easy to come by, that’s for sure. This will be a multi-month process.

That’s a huge bummer. I have lost a couple plants to the cold weather this spring but nothing like yours. Wishing your garden a speedy recovery!

Sorry to see and hear this news.
I’m glad it wasn’t worse.

Oh no! What the heck is going on with all the crazy weather? We had frost here a month and a half later than the latest usual frost date – after a couple of weeks of summer-like temps. Making it hard to be a gardener. Good luck and so sorry!

Thank you. Hopefully things will bounce right back.

Sorry to hear & see what happened to your garden. I understand the care and hard work that goes into it.

It is hard when you make backward progress on a project. But it’s nothing that hard work and a bit of money won’t fix.

So sorry to see the damage done to your garden! Flooding yards are an ugly thing! Heartbreaking after investing so much time and energy. Sure hope you are able to get it re-established soon, you always do such a wonderful job with your gardening!

I wasn’t really ready to make gravel walkways this year, but now I have a good start on them!

By clicking like does not mean I like what happened to your garden area. I have followed you for a year or so – I know the work and pride that you put into your efforts. An old woman shared a bit of wisdom with me after I experienced a huge disappointment. Her words were, ” This too shall pass!” you know what, it has always held true. Get out the shovel, laugh a bit about it and look at it as an opportunity to “upgrade”.
You are absolutely right

Awful news, and after all that hard work, really sorry to read about it and I hope you manage to salvage what you can and find the energy to start again if you have to.
Posted by Jimmy Cracked-Corn on June 2, 2013 at 8:43 pm
Well, I do love spending time in the garden.
Posted by Rachel on May 28, 2013 at 4:28 pm
These pictures are just devastating. Hang in there.
I will! Thank you.
Posted by Rachel on May 28, 2013 at 8:10 pm
That is incredible and shocking. I wish you the best in repairing the damage. I notice that your wood frames for the beds stayed in place – that’s some good construction!
Posted by Jimmy Cracked-Corn on June 2, 2013 at 8:44 pm
True. The beds held fast.
Posted by Jewels on May 28, 2013 at 8:55 pm
So sorry to hear this.
Posted by Jimmy Cracked-Corn on June 2, 2013 at 8:45 pm
Thank you. It’s already getting better.

What a mess! That must have been some flood. Sorry about this.
Posted by Jimmy Cracked-Corn on June 2, 2013 at 8:46 pm
Picking rocks out of my garden beds will give me something to do.
Posted by pamela Woodroffe on May 30, 2013 at 7:30 am
such a shame! I hope you can salvage something from this.
Posted by Jimmy Cracked-Corn on June 2, 2013 at 8:47 pm
Indeed. Thank you.

If only you had used the landscape boulders! Shucks. Time to hire the army of garden gnomes to restore order.
Posted by Jimmy Cracked-Corn on June 2, 2013 at 8:50 pm
The gnomes came today for a while.
