Who needs a rapture...

...when this is happening outside your door? Sunday morning's sun shining through the remnants of an overnight weather system. We got a rumble or two of thunder and a trickle of rain on Saturday evening. And then, these clouds.

Looking east. Our house is on the lower left where you can see the pointy pine tree.

After my morning walk with Callie, I did a little more garden work. It's coming along. Added eight more tomato plants and six bell peppers. I also put the remaining six marigolds out among the tomatoes. Soon the eggplant will go in and we'll be nearly complete.

I'm looking forward to watching it all grow.


  1. Brilliant photo.
    Sounds like your vegetable garden is really taking shape now.

  2. Amazing clouds ..:-)

    I think I should move and become a neighbour .. you are growing so much .. enough to feed lots of people :-) :-)

  3. Good grief,30 eggplants...and I
    think I read you put in about the
    same number of tomatoes. Bring on
    the ratatouille!

  4. Gorgeous sunrise! What kind of tomatoes did you plant (some french, some from the States)?

  5. It looks like Jesus is coming. Are you ready?
    I still got some cleaning up to do myself.

  6. My all-time favorite pictures, the sun behind the clouds. I have so many. We, you and I Walt, have the same eye for beauty. A lovely, beautiful photo. Thank you for sharing.

  7. Ah, the rapture. The news was full of people that spent beaucoup bucks to prepare for that fiction.

    That sure is a lovely cloud picture.

  8. We're looking forward to watching it grow too!

  9. Given the events of our Dimanche, the rapture might have been a better deal.

  10. You have a different sky there! Spectacular. Wishing you a good rain, too!

  11. jean, thanks. We're getting there.

    anne, it's true. If we're successful, we'll have a freezer full by fall.

    sheila, we love eggplants and normally only eat them in season, from our garden. We preserve some (roasted) but eat most. The surplus tomatoes get made into sauce and feed us all winter long.

    nadege, yes, a combo of tomatoes. Eight varieties, actually.

    cubby, thanks!

    kristi, :)

    mark, we'll serve him a nice glass of rosé when he gets here. And maybe a cracker.

    ron, thanks for the kind words!

    alewis, that's what I like to hear!

    diogenes, I prefer my fiction with hobbits, elves, and wizards.

    chris, I will take pictures!

    starman, oh, I will have to read about that.

    mitch, one of these days.

    michael, :)


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
