This flower bed is actually a sea wall that was build in the 1950's to keep the water from washing out the yard. In the 70's the water was up to the sea wall again but it hasn't been since then.

"The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reported this month that in April, the biggest of the Great Lakes lost about three centimeters during a time when spring runoff usually swells the lake by as much as eight centimeters.
The Corps said that was only the fourth time Lake Superior declined in April in the past 110 years and was the lowest level since 1907. The levels are also low in lakes Huron, Michigan, Erie and Ontario -- as much as 25 centimeters lower in some places."
This low water level has great implications for Great Lakes shipping. How has the low water level affected you or what have you noticed? Thanks for sharing, Brenda
