our morning...

we had thunderstorms come in around 2am this morning...
we got some rain here and that's about it....
DH called me from work about 10am and was wondering if we had any damage...
he hadn't seen any when he left for work...
the office at ADM in Newman, where he works...
lost half of it's roof about 3am...
that's when the alarms went off anyway...
and a tree was uprooted...
we were fine here...
prayed through the night for us, our property and our town to be safe...
prayer answered...
the rain beat some things down a little...
but they are still blooming...
and everything we worked on yesterday, got washed off this morning by the rain...
ferns are uncurling...
I love to watch them do this...
these were from my mom's yard...
seed pods...
maple leaves like rain...
we had gone out for a walk as soon as the rain stopped...
we slept in until 9 today...
couldn't believe it, but it was dark and cozy in bed...
the potting table that I washed up yesterday...
then we went to get the mail and drove around for about 10 minutes...
the dam again...
white water...
if foams at the bottom and there's part of a limb stuck...
blooming things were every where...
and standing water...
the undergrowth is greening up, too...
a sure sing of spring...
a small bridge we had to cross...
a little creek...
I wish we had one on the property...
I love little streams...
more standing water in a field...
see the purple mass blooming?
pear blossoms...
and I love this small street lined with them...
on the square again...
and back home for some quick work...
hydrangea...
ferns on the north side...
it won't be long until they start uncurling...
so had to get this raked off...
it's not a big area, so didn't take long...
they come in so thick, I don't worry about the weeds here...
the ferns will choke them out...
rose bush...
got the dead trimmed off of it this morning...
wasn't too much dead at all...
this should really grow this year...
I love the bench out here...
I can walk out here and sit down and rest before I move on to the next stop...
if Doofus shares with me...
forsythia...
I have so been waiting for this to warm up...
the sun has popped out while I have been doing this post and it's 61 now...
was 59, after the storms went through...
we got enough rain to make things grow good for a day or two...
now, back to cleaning house!

It looks like you live in a lovely area. I'm glad you all were okay and I hope your hubby's job isn't affected.
