I took these from the patio this morning. The rain was pouring down, the wind was blowing, and there was a constant rumble of thunder.
By late morning the first storm had passed and this is what I found in the yard. I thought I had missed the forsythia blooms. They are not prolific but we have some.
I was surprised to see that the Flowering Dogwood buds were no longer tightly closed.
Daffodils were open.
And at the end of the flowerbed closest to the driveway, I found this hyacinth.
