And The Thunder Rolls ...

Maggie stays inside when the weather gets "iffy".  By "iffy" I mean that you can look in any direction and it'll look very different. 

Here's the direction the weather is coming from today, and it'll be here very soon.  It's rolling this way as I write this.  I only hope that I'll get my post done before the thunder and lightning arrive.
You can see by these first two photos how different the sky looks depending on which direction you are looking.  
Earlier Maggie and I took a little walk across the back pasture.  We were being watched by a very curious, but neighborly, cow.  If Maggie only knew what power she had over these cows, she'd be thrilled.  They are use to REAL Border Collies, not old clueless ones!

Look what the rain has done ... Walking through the back pasture we noticed all the new growth.  Not only has the grass turned a very dark green, but looking a bit closer we found all sorts newly growing things trying to find some sunshine from their grassy beds. 

Old fungi

New fungi

Isn't this a Dandy...
 Bind Weed ...
 Fox Tails ...  I need to pull these

AND More fungi

A goose feather ... blownin' in the wind!
And all this by just watching my feet!
Speaking of blowing.  It's here....
"The Thunder is Rolling"
It's starting to Rain
Bye now
