Sky Watch Over Holland Landing

In a thundering voice from the heavens...showers and lightning rolled in from the west over a farmer's field.

In the foreground, Queen Anne's lace has never been so happy. What a summer it has been for wildflowers! And why not? After all, several days ago the Greater Toronto Area broke it's previous July rainfall record.
