Yesterday began as a dreary, overcast, rainy day that later moved to a state of melancholy, as far as the prevailing mood of the sky was concerned.
Mother Nature was neither ecstatic nor gloomy. She couldn't quite make up her mind. She was somewhere in between.
I know that feeling well.
For much of the day yesterday I debated--thanks to the indecisive weather--whether to do what I had originally intended, which was take pictures, grill hamburgers and plant tomatoes, not necessarily in that order. But when I awoke to a brief rain shower followed by some rather ominous looking clouds that didn't know whether they were coming, going, lingering, loitering, or setting up shop for a while--well I wasn't sure what to do with myself.

Just as the bulk of the day was behind us, the clouds lifted and the sun shone jubilantly over everything as if to make up for all the lost time earlier in the day.
This shot below, from the base of the locust tree in my back yard, shows that jubilation. And it was right about this time I decided to plant my tomatoes, which is a story for another day.
But they're in the ground.

What did you do yesterday?
