tornado Cornell, IL June 7,2008

Ok this was one of the scariest moments in my life. The news said there was a tornado in the Flanagan area moving in our direction,we of course,being the curious people we are,went directly to our back door and looked out and low and behold there it was. A cloud the size of Texas rotating and we new what was going to happen.We stood there about 5 minutes maybe longer and could start seeing the funnel cloud at the bottom of the cloud.I kept saying it's going to come down it's going to come down.Needless to say I was freaking!Grabbed my camera,and of course hubby was yelling at me to get the ground and I was shaking so bad I could hardly get the pics.I was also crying cuz i didnt know where it came down and I was praying that noone got hurt.It did land in a field and nothing was damaged and there were no injuries but it did come back down about 20 miles from our home in the Dwight,IL area. There was one farm that was hit but no one was injured. They did lose there home,barn and one cow.

Storm June 4,2008

This is what it looks like out our back door when we get storms. Pretty scary sight. We did have tornado watch and warnings also. There were two spotted west of us. One did touch down but there were no damages or injuries.

My new Perennials

OK Like I promised, I am showing some pics of my new perennial, butterfly garden. Now dont laugh at the plants,they do seem so dinky but they will grow,Hopefully!
Look close,the windows on the side of the garage arent real.I mean they are real windows but we made them look like they are in the garage.We took old windows and painted the back black and hung barnwood shutters.The window boxes are baskets I found at the craft store. I filled them with red geraniums,my favorite flower.
