The sound of thunder

When I looked at the weather map this morning, the whole Southeast was covered in red.  Something about an "unstable air mass."  What that means to me this afternoon is that I am here in the house listening to the rumbling of thunder outside.  That is one of my absolute favorite things.  Thunder feels like coffee, a good book, and a purring cat.  

Earlier today, before the hint of any instability, I went out to do my chores.  

(The word 'chores' makes me think of The Waltons.  I bet that John Boy had to do some of the things I do:  weed the garden, feed the horses, feed the chickens, figure out how the rooster keeps escaping from his pen.)

ANYWAY....

I took my camera with me on my chore excursion.


These are called Happy Flowers.
Not really.
They are Black-Eyed Susans without the black eyes and they make me happy.

This year I decided to stick with a color theme in the garden.  Green (of course), white, yellow, and a little purple thrown in.  Yellow squash, yellow corn, green peas, green oregano, basil, & rosemary.  And some red when the tomatoes are ripe.

This Euphorbia is one of my favorite plants this year.  The first time I saw it was in a pot on Mom's deck last summer and I fell in love with the delicate white flowers.

This ear of corn will be in my tummy on July 4th.

I really like how this grass has grown tassels.

And my favorite picture of the day............
The Leaning Tower of Peas.

Something really needs to be done about that.
