Friday evening, we had some storms come through & the sky was looking pretty scary there for a while! But I just had to snap some pictures.

The tornado sirens never went off, but it sure looked like they could have!
We didn't go to the gym until around 9:30 that night as we wanted to wait until they passed.
I thought I would share 2 more pictures of my garden as well. I didn't even know that I had these big white lillies (at least I think that's what they are) until I went out to get the hose the other day.
I have no clue what this one is, though. Anyone know? Whatever it is, it sure is pretty! I love the pink edges with the yellow & white.

That's all for now.....gonna go relax before I head to bed as we just got back from swimming at the gym a little while ago.

Have a great week :)

Thank you for the award Benita! Love all your photos! I love storm pictures but we are not situated in a good spot to get any nice ones! I agree with Sue, the second flowers are gladiolas.

Congrats on the new clothes. I like fitting in a smaller size but then you are afraid to get too many because you are soon out of them too. Congrats on the awards. And your storm clouds look very angry. Great photos. Have a GREAT weekend..
