Under The Weather

We've been under blue skies and sunshine today. Ninety degrees, and when it's that hot in Spring we are usually facing thunderstorms before the day is through.
True to form, as I'm typing, dark clouds have now moved in, blustery winds are whipping the trees, and a National Weather alert is blasting across the television. for our area and surrounding counties.
Hoping wherever you call home, all is all calm.

Your gardens are so beautiful Jo! I hope that the weather settles soon so you can enjoy them more. Today, we had perfectly blue sky, warm sun (but not unbearably hot) and just a slight breeze to keep the temperatures just right. Great day to do some landscaping. One day, I hope our gardens look as lovely as yours. X Chy

We had a doozy of a thunderstorm a couple of nights ago. I hope your bad weather passes through quickly. Loved your photos.

Everything looks lush and green!

We've had thunderstorms the last two days and more rolling through any minute now. Lots of lightning and rumbling thunder! I'm fine with all that as long as the power stays on!

Your photos are absolutely wonderful! You live in such a pretty place We had a three day heat wave with temperatures in the 90s. Then we had a storm and now it's cool again. Hope it cools off for you too.

It just passed through here the past days and flooding and high winds knocked some trees down. Guess it was worse in other places.

Since reading this earlier this morning, I am seeing big dark clouds roll in, thunder and lightening are on the way .. the forest will be watered, which is a good thing these days with fires here and there.
Enjoy a peaceful day ..

Ah, your lovely Tennessee garden, and that Sky-in-a-Basin is simply gorgeous! I hope the winds did no damage down there---we had quite a big RED area on the map north of us last night, as well, with the cameras focused on a threatening "V" of a cloud-tip that kept dipping down, dipping down. They even did the long-distance lens on a copse of trees, behind which a darkening, rising cloud of perhaps dust and debris was swirling, as if to rise to meet the funnel.

Scary. So glad nobody was harmed, and it seemed to dissipate after a while.

Always lovely to drop in on all your wonderful adventures and scenery!

Oddly enough we had a thunderstorm as well today. You never can tell what the weather will be in May

It moves in fast, we are getting sunshine this afternoon.

We just had a pop up storm here too. Mind you, it hasn't rained in six weeks, so I welcomed the brief rain shower. Your photos are lovely, so lush and green. What a lovely area you live in.
