After a restless night with little sleep, I finally decided it was time to get up and make the most of the day. Tonight is a work night, so with a little luck, maybe I can get a nap this afternoon. The weather has settled into a cooler pattern for a while. It is currently 64 degrees F, heading for 71. The weatherman is calling for thunder storms today and tonight, and then again tomorrow.
I've been keeping my eye on the stormy weather in Florida. I have family and friends there, and I'm praying that they all stay safe. Tropical storm Debbie has caused so much flooding there, and left a lot of folks with no power. The weather seems to be feast or famine.
Yesterday, we had thunder storms with a bit of lightning, and I tried to get photos of the lightning. However, that was not so simple. First, it was pouring rain and I did not want to get my camera wet, and second I could not see the lightning. Hard to get a photo of what you can't see.
But I did get some photos of rain. Yup! Rain. I take pictures of whatever is at hand. So I stood on my front porch and took photos of a tree through the rain coming down over the porch roof. That looked like this.
I took more photos when we had a short break in the rain, and here you can see more of the tree.
I also have a pretty photo that might warm you up a bit after all this rain. This is a Japanese Iris that I planted last year. Sorry about the shadows, but the cherry tree has grown quite a lot and is providing a bit of shade for the Iris. Isn't this gorgeous? The photo was taken last week when it was so hot.
Aside from the weather, there's really not much news. Last night, I did work a bit on some new freebies and our July collab kit. Other than that, nothing exciting going on here. So, on that note, I think I will go do a load of laundry. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
