In spite of the flooding and streams overflowing their banks in places all over Utah, we have thus far fared pretty good here in SpringTowne. Our little creek has been at about a third of capacity for the past week or so, and that's about it. It's been pretty cool, and the rain and snow has been coming at even increments. No cloudbursts so far.
We got a new Jonathan apple tree to replace the several that died last year from lack of water, deer dining and generally harsh conditions. I'll be taking some precautions against the deer early in the season, I've found some trunk protection material and I have some welded wire fence if that doesn't do the full trick.
I got a Faux Orange and some Honeysuckle for a couple of places around the house, as well. Something has to work, and if it smells good, we're that much better for it.
