Nice sunny morning, then thunderstorms in the afternoon.
It began to pour around 1:30 pm, when I shot the photo, above. It's of my front porch steps and a puddle that always forms when it rains on the brick landing. It disappears as soon as it stops raining, but was nicely reflective today. The sky was still fairly bright.
Within a few minutes, the sky turned dark gray, with a greenish tint. It was as dark as it is at 8:30 pm these days. Indoors, had to turn on all the nights I use at night. Then I walked down to the porch and took this shot. This is 2 pm! The day lilies are beginning to really come out, but I'm sure they were a bit confused today!
Meanwhile, Earlier in the Day. . .
My little Lupine is really looking good these days. At least it was just before the rain came. I hope it didn't get crushed. It was raining the proverbial cats-and-dogs.
The pink Geranium is beginning to flower now. This plant is almost 3-feet wide, having wintered-over inside.
Neighbor June's front steps and her fabulous containers, flowers and collection of ceramic shards found in the ground around Pink Gardens. Almost every time you dig in the soil to plant, you find pieces of old pottery, dishes or glass.
