Aliens must have landed in our yard during the thunderstorms we've been having. Seriously. Well, seriously about the thunderstorms. They've been horrible! Huge thunderboomers and torrential downpours have punctuated the past three days. One of the days we had to head to the basement because there were tornado sightings within 15 miles of our house, and the weather channel said they were moving in our direction. I think they're over now, and apparently there was no damage anywhere in the area.

The alien thing? Check out these funky little mushrooms that sprouted in the mulch by our back deck.





And if those aren't strange enough, those same little aliens were nice enough to plant some pretty purple flowers.



Ya gotta love it when creatures from other planets visit, right? :-)

Oh, but aren't those little aliens so pretty. I love the way the mushrooms look like flowers. Glad the weather didn't get you. I look at the news and see all of those that did get hit and I feel for them.
