Stormclouds in August...

After thumbing our noses at this type of entertainment for all our lives,
we finally packed our bags....

 and reached here under the gathering storm....
To sample some Butterbeer and goodies.

Summer thunderstorms and Jasmine

For a heartbeat,  one was back  during the Southwest monsoons: the smell of rain and wet earth and trees.
The jasmine bush on our deck from April through July in its second bloom.

Coneflowers and Lilies...

An Hybrid variety of Echinacea but gorgeous gorgeous shade of pink!
Loved them on the weathered blue gray of our deck but it would soon be transplanted.
Had to move them to the shade during the 3 digit temperatures during the last week; the buds were getting burnt!

Portulaca on my weathered old  blue deck.
This has been prolific over the past few weeks in shades of Rani Pink, Golden Yellows, White and shades of all.....

Lewis Ginter: Spring 2010....

Tulips at  Lewis Ginter.

Early Spring:

Our neighbour's Kwanzan Cherry blossoms...always happy to share!
A little late in posting these early spring beauties; no tinkering with any software in these snapshots!
Remember the day as being cloudy.
