It's a fixer-upper of course. . . . . . . . and someone with deep pockets will
hopefully come along and turn this country house into a home once again.
It's actually on the main street of a small North Carolina town, surrounded by
smart, well cared for homes. It's sad to see this one unloved.
Driving back from the coast on Sunday afternoon was lovely - everywhere
green and fresh after heavy rains. The fields were plowed, bright green
cornstalks were already about a foot high.
Speaking of heavy rains - we were hit by such an intense electrical storm
last evening that serious flash flooding occurred in Raleigh. Here in the
garden we've got a lot of clean up awaiting when it dries up - especially
re-spreading all those cypress wood chips we spent an entire weekend
of back breaking work on in such hot weather! Some have even ended
up in the street after being washed down the driveway in the river of water -
it was quite frightening.
Bob is heading out now to check under the cottage for any water - we
are said to have received up to 5 inches of rain in about half an hour!
Our fear now is although today is lovely, dry and sunny, more storms and
rain are in the forecast for this week.
