FRIENDS & FLOODING

Atlanta has flooded. Yesterday morning my contractor went to pick up plants for an installation. 3 acres of plants had washed down a creek. Another wholesaler had lost only an acre of plants down a creek. Douglasville was one of the hardest hit areas. Acres of homes under water.
A woman drowned in her car less than 4 miles from my home.

My leaking roof & flooded crawl space pale in comparison.


Driving to appointments yesterday, encountering detours. Washed out bridges & sections of road simply gone.



Seeing crews cutting huge trees, restoring power.


Connecting with friends & clients discovering who is fine and who is affected by this flood.

Susanne Hudson, pics above, lives in Douglasville. Her home & garden were spared. Isn't it wonderful to hear good news?
.
The bad news is incredibly humbling.

Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
