Where is the middle ground

First we have so much sun that my yard threatened to dry up and blow away like the midwest in the 30’s.  Now we have so much rain that the nice young man who helps with my flowers came by to inform me that an inordinate amount of them had drowned in their pots from too much water.  And we won’t even get into the issue of the raspberries that are sooooooo close to being ripe but can’t quite go that last step without the sun.
