After the rain, the rainbow...



Last Wednesday brought much heartbreak and devestation to 
many in the south, but GA saw amazing weather following 
all of that intense wind and rain...


Sweet Shot Day



It was really bright and warm, so my jasmine bloomed...







And, the air is now full of that joyful scent!









I have a bit of a fascination with spider webs, and tho the winds 
reached 175 MPH just one-hour north of our backyard, this one 
couldn't be destroyed.  And, GA is so awesome that I'm quite 
confident the owner will rebuild...

These are beautiful photos. I actually have never seen what a jasmine looked like so this was definitely new and interesting to me.

lovely jasmine!! though I hate spiders... I love their webs and watching them work! last year I captured one wrapping a fly! it wasn't a great shot b/c my camera is nothing to be desired... but still... it was a fun capture! =)

Oh how lovely your photos are! We experienced the same and reveled in it - til it was gone again. But ahhhh, we did create some wonderful family memories while the sun lasted, and of course, I also grabbed my easy to use digital camera to snap some shots of the day! Perfect and perfectly fun for this Sweet Shot Tuesday.

That tornado that ripped through Alabama was one of the worst I've ever seen.

Here on the frozen tundra, a town about an hour north of here had a tornado rip through one day about two weeks ago, and then the next they had 7 inches of s_ _ _.

Crazy weather.

ChantaleP said...

Beautiful quote.. My hearts go out to all who were affected by those tornadoes. Your photography is... breathtaking.
