AFTER THE RAINS

. . . and the storms, and the winds,
look what "survived" our terrible storms.

I think the flowers "needed that."

(Such is the cycle of Spring.)

GREEN SKIES GIVE WARNING

When skies turn green,
you can be certain
bad weather is on the way.

It was 2 o'clock in the afternoon,
and suddenly the sky was dark
with an eerie green glow
above City Hall.

We knew it was time to head
for shelter.

(10 minutes later, strong winds
and hail pelted the city.)

Luckily, no tornadoes.

HOW DO THEY DO IT?

It seems impossible
how plants (flowers, ferns, trees)
can sprout and grow
in a solid, massive limestone bluff!

But they do.

(Nature is amazing.)

THESE STEPS

These old stone steps
still lead to Richart Spring.
 
Clean, cold, gurgling,
year round,
over 1-million gallons a day.

One of the many feeder streams
into the Meramec River.

We are blessed in Missouri
with our free-flowing, spring-fed
rivers and streams.

Clean water.
More precious than oil.

BEE'S KNEES

Zoey loves showing off
her new tattoos.
Her latest addition are
literally the "bees knees."

As my barista at Kaldi's Coffee,
Zoey also creates her own art
with floral lattes.
