Speaking of Blowing Away . . . or Perhaps Flying

Not intentionally a common theme here, just finally had time to sit down for a few to share. Last night we had a rather large tree split in half and come down toward the house, out to survey the surroundings this morning. Last night we had at least three inches come down with some hail, in about 15 minutes! I think that's the most rain I've seen come down that fast. A little awe inspiring. Yes, we visited the basement, again, for a few minutes. Someone shared with me recently that April shows bring May flowers, and June showers bring mosquitos - soooo true.

The birds are singing, everything is green, and we're enjoying the beauty of God's creation today.

Speaking of those birds, I thought perhaps someone might want some links to bird information and activities at this point of the summer:
