Echoes of Thunder —-Monday, July 23, 2018

A big storm rolled in last evening…massive clouds dropping chutes of rain all around us

The thunder and lightning played along the Uncompahgre Plateau

Terry and I sat outside under the carport and letting raindrops fall all around us.

After the fast-moving storm headed beyond us it was time to change the irrigation water one last time before night.

The light tumbling and playing within and on the storm clouds was invigorating.

Coming back in through all the fields of corn, alfalfa and the pinto beans I thought to myself the air feels more like August than July.  The heat sits on one (I AM NOT COMPLAINING — I do so love Summer!) the air hot and humid, and a certain stillness which bespeaks of growing and maturing plants.

Later, much later, Boomer and I went for a wee walk about–just to look at that glorious flourishing moon!

 Drowning us in light.  The clouds tumbling before a high-unseen wind; first covering the moon then not.

Closer to morning I saw the moon peaking light throughout the tops of the tasseled corn.

I think night is just so beautiful.  I do.

From my world to your heart,

  1. Your photos of the moon are gorgeous! I’m glad you got some rain on the farm, and I hope you can get some more. The last couple of days here on the Plateau in Tennessee have been more like June than July. Feel free to keep the August heat as long as you would like!


  2. Oh, Linda,

    You are such a wonderful addition to our lives!!! You are a reminder to look at the good things in our everyday lives and appreciate them.




  3. The moon has been beautiful. The beans look beautiful. Hope you get a super crop. Thank you for sharing your farm. Sharon Drake. South central kansas


  4. Your Zinnias are beautiful especially with that Red Hot Poker in the middle! We stay inside if it is thundering, thunder in Minnesota usually means lightening too:(


  5. I did not realize that you were in the region of the Uncompahgre Plateau. I have no idea where that is, but I think it is near Dolores, where one of my colleagues just relocated back to. I would like to go there this winter to prune his apple trees, but will not likely be able to do so.


  6. The sound of rain, after a long wait, especially, is so good for the soul! I like those pictures where you can actually see the rain falling from the clouds. (at least that is what it looks like to me!
    🙂 ) Beautiful moon photos too!!
