We woke up yesterday morning to see lightening outside our bedroom window. I haven't been keeping up with the weather before it happens too much lately, so this was a little bit of a surprise to me. Before long the rain started to fall. I had a quick thought of heading off to the basement, but the worst of the storm passed us without any damage. We did get a lot of rain, though!
We had already planned for Lily to spend the day with me. I picked her up, we went to the grocery store and when we got home, I told her that I'd like to get my camera to go back out and take some pictures of the mini-flood. Her mama is a wonderful photographer so she was very willing to get back out and be my photography director.
"Drive down here. You need a picture of the water over the road."
"Drive down the road and take a picture of how much water is around those trees."
"Minnie, that is beautiful. Just beautiful."
Lily has had a terrible cough and needs a little help to get over it. She was so cute with the vapor rising around her head. I couldn't resist this picture.
It's a happy day on the farm.
