Mt. Rainier and Lenticular Clouds - Dec. 2008 copyright: JMM

Clouds & Flowers

Another reward for dealing with winter are the moody skies and neat clouds.  


Every now and then when I see a puffy, domed cloud, my brain still registers it as Mt. Rainier.







Nice to see the dogwood again


No idea....assuming azalea.

The rhodies at my mom's house look great.  I sure miss all the ones I had in my yard in Washington.





This one is one of my faves.


This particular rhodie has very fragrant flowers.  Most don't.

They smell sweet but not overpoweringly so.
