April 23, 2010

Today I'm thankful for April showers.

Something about the gloomy, rainy days of Spring, just makes me want to get outside with my camera and play.

Menacing clouds, gusting winds . . .

and lots of hail.

I'm really hoping it rains a lot tonight . . . to clean off the mess the storms made to the house and garage. 

We mostly had gentle soaking showers today, but late this afternoon, it picked up a notch and we got some pea to quarter sized hail. 

I spent most of the day on the computer weeding through emails and still have around 500 to go.  I'm hoping to finish them all up sometime this weekend.  Wish me luck!


  1. What kind of flower is the first? Looks like it has a tongue ;).

    More rain & hail? Hope its not too cold, but I hope it will rain enough to clean the dirt left behind by the storm.

  2. Hiya M. That first flower is an Iris. They ARE strange looking flowers, but quite colorful.

    Luckily it hasn't been too cold, but it rained most of the day today, so hopefully that cleaned everything off. ;)
