Have I told you how much I love these flowers? Really? I can't get enough of them. Due to the torrential downpours we've have in the past 5 days, I was happy I picked these. Last Thursday and Friday we got up to 11 inches of rain. Depending on the area, 10-11inches. Hard to believe? That doesn't include the 3.5-5.5 inches we got Sunday night and Monday. We are just about rained out here. It's hard to believe there are some places that would give anything to have rain. Our ceiling in our living room is feeling it as well as the roof by the chimney. Unfortunately, the insurance adjuster is checking out everyone else too. Hopefully no more rain for awhile. So, I will continue to gaze upon my Casablanca until the last petal falls. Gosh I love these flowers!!
