Flowers in the yard

It was sad to see the rising of the Mississippi river and was covering the houses nearby. So many people have left their home to a safer place. In my neighborhood itself, we've been getting a lot of rain. One or two days the sun was hitting bright and the next day it was all covered by dark clouds.
I was able to work in the garden for a few days. I have planted the tomatoes, peas, green beans, zucchini, radishes, kohlrabi, and lettuces.
I am using the grass clippings to mulch the plants. Especially on the tomato plants. I am not sure if the tomatoes are happy with tons of rain water. I have seen one japanese beetle on the tomato plants. I quickly spray the plant with organic insect repellent.

How coincidental - we are both posting flowers! Yours is in the backyard. Mine have moved from the garden to adorn the interiors of the house:) Hope you have a good harvest.
