 Nature shelf

Long days here. Once school dismisses, we start working 10 hour 4 day weeks. I only have to do it for one more week, thank goodness. Work is slow, trying to stretch the load for 3 weeks is tiring;  but it's great to work uninterrupted in the quiet.

The garden is starting to bloom again. The daylilies aren't far off and I think the white coneflower will be in bloom tomorrow! Can't wait for that. Trying to keep the gravel clean and weed free is a learning process. I will probably have to accept the fact that it needs to be blown every day. We had a big storm last night, which makes it even more necessary. But, oh! the happiness of thunder and lightening! The lightening was unbelievable, and I know this is going to sound crazy, but I was asleep and woke to the lightening and a current running through my body! I thought I must have dreamed that and lay there listening when it happened again! Just a small current, nothing painful.  Really odd, though. Never had something like that happen before. There also was a strange and beautiful sky over Atlanta and surrounding area (where I live). I didn't get to see it, unfortunately, but there were pictures all over facebook and even the local news spoke about it. It was almost dark and there was a double rainbow and deep pink sky. Below is a picture my friend took.  All in all, it was a strange night!

I hope you're having a great Friday, thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Your flowers are beautiful! I have been admiring the way you have used gravel in your landscaping. What an unusual way for the sky to look, beautiful, but a little freaky. It would make me nervous to feel extra current in my body during a thunderstorm, think I would move further away from the window. I know someone who was talking on a landline phone a while back and the current from a lightning strike came through the wire into her phone. She was only slightly injured. There must have been a lot of energy flying around in your neck of the woods.

  2. Beautiful photos. Such colorful flowers. The sky is really unique. A stunning color.

  3. Your garden is lovely, and that sky photo is awesome!!
