This Middle Tennessee valley was blessed with several days of glorious sunshine throughout the week.
Temperatures warm enough to shed Winter coats, and exchange with short-sleeved shirts and flip-flops.
Today most of the entire area is under a flash flood warning, up to three inches of rain predicted in a twenty four hour period, temperatures back in the 'normal' range and potential tornado threats.
The weather is certainly never a bore around this lush valley region.
Little birds are busy building their nests.
This one is a left-over on the porch wreath, I see signs of new fluffing and tweaking.
The Iris have made their way through the dampened, soft earth.
Signs of Spring are surely all around us.
"March bustles in on windy feet
And sweeps my doorstep and my street.
She washes and cleans with pounding rains,
Scrubbing the earth of winter stains.
She shakes the grime from carpet green
Till naught but fresh new blades are seen.
Then, house in order, all neat as a pin,
She ushers gentle springtime in."
