Sunset was looming and we needed some bread and vegetables, so off to the grocery store we scurried. Along the way we passed this flower-decorated mail box sitting in a tiny field of flowers. It was very pretty, but there are lots of painted mail boxes here in Bend and lots of pretty flowers.

As we walked along Debbie was shocked at how overwhelming the clouds were; they were looming like some sort of gigantic orange and black monster charging out of the darkening sky.

This monster cloud hangs over Bend, and directly over us.

I aim my camera at the monster, but what can I do in the face of such towering power, except cower and snap a quick picture, and scurrying off to our secure little home.

Life in Bend isn’t all sunshine and roses;
Sometimes it’s clouds and hollyhocks.
