Looking west

We’ve been having the weirdest weather this month, tons of rain and thunderstorms so heavy that sometimes I wake up and think I’m back in Tennessee, and yesterday I walked over to this window in our living room to see if I could see an end to the line of clouds out over the valley. And that was the first time I ever noticed this tree in our neighbor’s yard. It’s like an enormous wedding bouquet just sitting there right next to our window.
