A beautiful day in the neighborhood

I'd gotten a little down with all the rain these last few weeks. By our calculations (adding up the rain we've poured out of our rain-gauge, we've had 12 inches of rain in the past several days.
I've spent several hours on our screened porch listening to rain drum on the metal roof and listening to thunder roll off into the distance.
The wind playing with the chimes can almost lull you to sleep until lightening slaps the ground too close for comfort and the thunder is more of a crack than a rumble.
But today things were different. The clouds moved off to my friend Keith's house in Kentucky and the skies turned blue as an aquamarine. 
I had a chance to shoot a hanging basket of yellow flowers at the local produce stand which is below.
I hope you all have a remarkable Friday.

    Glad you got a little respite!!

  2. What a great world we would have if we all realized, it is a beautiful day in our neighborhood. There is ALWAYS some beauty to see. You describe it very well.

  3. Enjoy the sun and the clear weather! One thing the rain does is that everything looks so fresh afterwards...lovely picture!

  4. It is pouring down while I'm typing this, but it's supposed to finally be sunny skies in Pennsylvania tomorrow, too.

  5. I am happy to hear the rain let up for you ... I think we are getting some tomorrow.. but back to good weather again on Sunday :)

  6. Rain can often be a pain, but some say after rain there is sunshine. Here in Ireland it rains most of the year, am use to it now but when the sun decides to show her face in the summer, I spend as much time I can outside enjoying it. Have a fab weekend!

  7. That looks like a nice sunny basket. Yellow can brighten a rainy day.
    Right now it's still raining here too and more rain on the way this coming week but I chose to look outdoors with my winter eyes today. I remember how I was starved for the color green this past winter. Not a snowflake in sight, thank goodness. It's green everywhere and it makes me smile. My bearded irises are starting to bloom.
