We've been surrounded by severe weather lately
Watching this weather come in is pretty sobering
Fortunately our end of town has avoided the brunt all.  Mostly just rain for us which inspires me to get some pictures outside again
My flowers have been loving it
Truthfully it makes things so green and I like that so much
Yeah, I could use a spray bottle for shots like this but the are the real deal
I like reflective shots so...this happened
...and this...see me?
The storms eventually break up
There's hope in this for me every time
And then an even greater sign of hope
Note it's a double
Such a beautiful bow
Storms come and go
Some appear really violent
But eventually...
They break and fade leaving only hope and the promise.
