This has truly been one of the most unusual years I have ever experienced. Sunday morning we woke to thunder. We got an unexpected rain which was such a blessing. I went out on our back porch and sat on my swing. As I sat there I decided I would go in and get my camera so I could take some picture of the awesome clouds. I am going to start at the top picture and work down. As I sat down on my swing I was struck by how beautiful the clouds were. I just sat and took pictures as the minutes passed and the clouds changed. The first 9 pictures are taken from the back of the house. It was a wonderful morning. I walked out to take care of the animals and decided I needed to take a picture of donkey & my chickens. I wanted to get a picture of Donkey's face. He was in a mood as usual but, finally consented and allowed me to take a fair picture. I went on and took pictures of my chickens. After I had fed and watered I started to go back to the house and looked off to the West and saw the rainbow. The next picture is one of the sun shining across the pasture. I went back to the porch and sat down and just watch all the activity going on around me. There were a lot of hummingbirds flitting around that morning. I caught a picture of one but it is a small picture. I took one more picture across the pasture and then went around front. The first picture is one off my front porch. Next is a picture of the crepe myrtle on the front edge of the property. It was fascinating to watch the changes in the sky so I took a couple more pictures of the sky from the front of the house. The next picture you see is from the front of the property looking at the pomegranate tree and then the huge fig trees. Behind the fig trees is a tall box elder. I was trying to capture how huge the fig trees are in the last 4 pictures. By the way I picked figs this morning (just a few but that just means they are coming).
Above are some pictures of the huge egg I got last night. Not sure how the poor chicken was able to have that. I have never seen anything like this. I love the things God does and the new experiences He gives me each and every day.
