This is me today

There are pros and cons to flying into an airport that is surrounded by thunderstorms. On the positive side you get to see some really great, angry clouds. You also get to see heavy rain from a unique perspective -- the "wall" of water was really quite impressive, especially as the plane flew around it, giving be a view from different sides. I also saw that the rain was not falling from the cloud that was overhead, as it was coming from the bottom of the storm at about a 45 degree angle. Really cool stuff!

On the negative side, airplanes don't take off when those storms are around, so connecting flights get a little bit delayed. And by "a little bit" I mean five hours. So I got home at 2:15 AM, and very little sleep was enjoyed. I'm feeling and looking like the photo above right now.


Although I suppose I'll be feeling a bit more like this in a couple of hours:

Both of these shots are from one of the most unique planters that I've ever seen, in one of the gardens on the weekend's Garden Bloggers Fling tour in Portland. Wonderful stuff, perfectly describing me today.

I loved that planter. It was perfect for the garden where we saw it. Heck, I wouldn't mind having it myself!

Glad to know you made it home, albeit very late.

I love the images...I can relate! I really enjoyed meeting you irl at the GBFling. Maybe you will have one in St. Louis someday. I am still thinking to take a road trip to see the Missouri Botanical Gardens. Hope to see you in Toronto!

Bummer, I'm sorry to hear your flight was a mess. I do know that rain business though, having flown into Seattle and Portland many a time. Still amazed that you all were here!
