The rains came last night, with thunder and lightning and wind. But this morning, all is calm, and my morning walk out to the garden was kinda "refreshing" as I strolled out to the chicken coop to feed my nine critters! I was surprised by these beautiful, wild purple morning glories along the fence. TODAY was the first day they have bloomed, so I wasn't really even aware they were there just waiting for this moment! I like NICE surprises... I get enough of the 'not-so-nice' kind.
