Unfortunately, this morning I had to pickup every berry I could find that was washed onto my driveway on both sides of the gate.
The berries were from the Texas Mountain Laurel tree. They are poisonous. If Charlie stepped on one bits might stick to his paw. He would die.
I now have to walk my yard to find berries from the trees in the yard up hill of me. And walk all over the area above my retaining wall.
The street river brought junk and tree trash.
I ended up with over 3 cups of the berries. I have one of the trees just by my fence on the street side. Its not full grown. It can reach 30 feet. Mine is close to 15 feet tall. I am wondering if the berries are from that tree? So I have some work cut out for me.
The rain yesterday was as bad as I've had here. It was so thick I couldn't see the retaining wall as I stood in the doorway.
There were severe weather alerts.
There was some thunder & lightening but it didn't last long. Finally the rain lessened. But still heavy. Slowly over 5 hrs it stopped.
I haven't checked the news to see what damage there may be.
Remember it all runs down hill from here... and there are a lot of Hills in the Hill Country.
