Early Morning Gardens - Just before a Texas Thunderstorm!
This morning I went on another walk about the gardens and I noticed more plants are starting their Spring growth. I grabbed my camera and started snapping pictures right and left, the lighting was perfect and I was happy!
Then I noticed the wind picking up...I looked to the west...yep a storm was on its way. Within 15 minutes the wind was blowing, it thundered, rain started, next came pea to penny sized hail, then more rain...about 45 minutes later...we had bright sunny skies!
Go figure...there's an old Texas saying, "If you don't like the weather stick around a few minutes and it'll change." Well, it certainly did this morning!
The collage is from this morning...prior to the storm.
