Oklahoma Gutter Corn

We are on the way to record yearly rainfall in much of Oklahoma. The most successive days without rain all year so far is seven, while we had one stretch of twenty straight days of rain. The grass is green and flowers blooming. Yesterday, I noticed that everything is so lush around my house that I have corn growing in my rain gutter. One ear is almost ready to eat.
The corn seeds got into the gutter from the multitude of birds in my backyard. Marilyn feeds them daily. Here is a pic of the corn growing in my gutter, in case you don’t believe me.
