Juicy Atmosphere

The afternoon was hot and humid.

Distant rumblings made me scurry
to button up the car.

The atmosphere was just right for thunderstorms.

The wind came up.

Refreshing rain came down.

Dear Mary,
My little inch of rain is nothing compared to your 11 inches...
Fay did dump on you.
Glad you did get some rain. Wish it was handed out a bit less dramatically.
Thanks honey, I have not done sky shots for awile. After the storm came through the light was incredible...a golden-yellow glow.

Dear Cheryl,
I also love stormy weather. The energy is always exciting.
I hope you get some rain soon.
Thank you. The sunflowers are just now coming into full bloom. The birds will enjoy the seeds in another couple of weeks. For now the bugs are having a nice pollen treat.

Dear Nonizamboni,
Thank you. I have often thought I would join in for Skywatch Friday but I do my slide show every Friday.
It is fun to see what others put up. I enjoyed your post.

You lucky bugger. I wish I had rain to write about. It is so darned dry here. I love just seeing your rain and clouds. It would feel so refreshing.

Q said...

Dear Lisa,
We needed rain too. I seldom water the gardens and I was getting to the point where I was going to have get the hose out!
Our Summer has been wet and on the cooler side. These last couple of weeks have really felt like Fall. Hope Autumn lingers all the way to Christmas!
Have a safe Holiday,

I love sunflowers and I love the way you took pictures of them. Great!

Wendy said...

Ooooh - I loved this post! The excitement was evident in your photos.... the build-up to a thundershower! Your sunflower looked pretty good too.

Q said...

Dear Barbara,
I was tucked up under the back soffit when the thundershower began. The sunflowers were very close by and they looked interesting to me in the rain.

Q said...

Dear Wendy,
Thank you. As a storm approaches I get very excited. I love the way the air feels when the wind comes up. I stood on the deck and felt the energy and watched the lightning when this storm popped up.

Dear Terry,
Thank you. I always hope the photos tell the story!
