A Day for those who - Look Up !

“Clouds are just wisps of nature.” ― Anthony T. Hincks When I went out and saw this magnificent sky - it had to be shared with y'all. North Carolina has had [especially our area] more rain than we need [in my opinion] - After all, when one steps in the yard and the clay dirt goes squish - That is plenty - And all that rain and not one rainbow ! Yes, April showers and all that ... but we started in March - The flowers are blooming - Buds have popped out on all things - But, y'all get Our North Carolina - Because it was there in all the glory Mother Nature provided ! Happy White Puffy Thingys in Our Sky Day !
