Flowers, woods, and rain clouds

As some spring trees, flowers, and bushes have finished blooming, others are beginning including our rhododendron that's blooming a month early.

Spiraea ...

... snowball bush ...

... iris.

SWAC Husband mowed and trimmed the yard before the expected rainy weekend began. The back yard goes into the woods where all kind of woodland critters live and entertain us throughout the year.

Buttercups are blooming way early.

By mid-afternoon, the predicted clouds began rolling in and, not long after I took this photo from the back deck, the wind picked up, temperature started dropping, and the thunder rolled off the Appalachian Mountains. Raindrops began to hit the window and we settled in for a family weekend. I love rainy days.
