The Thought For The Week

I could say, oh well it's my nature.

But I am a human, a follower of Christ, not a dog, a bird, or a cat that does everything by instinct or by its nature.

I can change and I will, through him who gives me strength.

Hello, Today's Flowers

"Foxglove, Foxglove,
What do you see?"
The cool green woodland,
The fat velvet bee;
Hey, Mr Bumble,
I've honey here for thee!
"Foxglove, Foxglove,
What see you now?"
The soft summer moonlight
On bracken, grass, and bough;
And all the fairies dancing
As only thy know how.
-Cicely Mary Barker.
Foxglove is a beautifully flower, and would
make a lovely addition to any garden.
Foxglove (Digitalis) is highly poisonous,
early symptoms consist of,
-digestive issues,
-wild hallucination,
- severe headaches.

Plant it in your garden

but take a note from this bug,

do not eat it!

I finely got my thunder storm.
This one was a thunder shower,

Most of it was about fifteen second away,
but it was a nice show.

I Called It

On our way home Mom, Anna and I saw some really cool clouds, and I said, "It looks like thunder."
When we got home the clouds were looking more and more mysterious.
So I went out back to get some better pics, and when I returned to the barnyard to finish my chores for the evening, I heard the first crash of thunder off in the distance.
I was so excited, I jumped up and down clapping my hands, all most crying with excitement.
I absolutely love thunder and lightning storms.
A few years ago we had a huge thunder and lightning storm in the middle of the night, it was so loud and so close I woke with a jump. We watched that storm all night from our screen porch, the most exciting one I had ever seen or heard became a memorable night.
This one only rumbled twice and was never heard from again. But these clouds viewed with the fam and pups from the pumpkin patch is certainly notable.
On the other horizon the sky was turning pink. I love the pretty peach color in this picture, don't you?

Thanks for visiting me and my blog, I hope you have a spectacular weekend.
