Indian Blanket After The Storm

Early AM this day was great by one heck of a storm: Rain, cloud to cloud lightning, hail and shear winds. In its path a lot of folks plants and flowers took a beating, along with many tress and power lines, but the little stripe up the road seemed to fair fairly well. I am glad since this Indiana Blanket flower has a relatively short life span I had zero captures of them this year. So here is an Indian Blanket after the storm.

A Threadbare Indian Blanket

This is one of the last Indian Blanket flowers on one of my favorite in-town-photo-ops. I will post some of the past captures at a later date. Till Then here is a threadbare Indian Blanket.

Here Comes The Sun….Not!

Since we suffered through a horrific drought last year I welcome the rain. On a personal note though, I would like to see a few hours of sunshine here and there till the true dog days of summer decides to settle in. Since I have no sway over the weather,  I guess I will have to deal with the lack of rays.  So today I headed out with The Bride to look for a few photo ops.  Below are a few from the day.
