Mother Nature...can fool us in a big hurry
I took these pictures at 8:30 p.m. huge massive heavy dark clouds were rolling in and yet not a tiny breeze in the air.
I've always wanted roses & ivy to climb my porch entree and there they were in all their splendor... finally, so I grabbed my camera thinking "what will they look like when this storm is over"?
I walked around the yard taking pictures of the other rose bushes just ready to pop their beautiful heads out. Along with the new box garden and tomatoe patch Mr. bed of roses is weeding or WHATEVER he does out there all the time in all that dirt. I have to remind myself sometimes that his dad was a row crop farmer, so this is who he is genetically... But did he HAVE to plant 70 tomatoe plants?
Now is less than 10 mins and it's so windy you cannot stand up (well I take that back, Mr. bed of roses is still hanging onto his hoe his clothes barely clinging onto him...hope something doesnt fly through the air and bonk him in the head!)
You can see him with the second love of his life (me being the first, hmmm, well its either me or the tomatoe & fruit trees? NEVER quite sure this time of year.)
Today I have realized that my dad is just not well at all, he is very very tired and weak and my heart has been so heavy trying to wrap my mind that maybe this time he will not get better so I came home from the shop and just slept. So I was thrilled to wake up in time to grab these photo's mother nature is so generous with her beauty that we can enjoy her in our times of need.
I hope you enjoy them too, and if you need cheering up for some reason or other, remember how good mother nature is to us.
I see lightning...just so I don't see the BAD WITCH IN KANSAS or OZ... this wind is wild I need to hang on...!
