Skywatch Friday

For the most part this week it has been fairly sunny with just a few clouds in the sky.

The weather people keep saying we will have some rain. I am ever hopeful since our garden could use some more rain. This blanket of clouds that came rolling in gave us a half inch of rain. It felt good. The grass responded by growing greener.

For more Skywatching all over the world go here. Have a great weekend.

  2. We had rain Tuesday night and we needed it. It made a huge difference in my seedlings coming up. I was just about to get all the hoses out. Lovely shots! ~Brooke

  5. Lisa - what lovely blooms you have there against the blue sky. I think that blanket of clouds stopped here first as we finally got .42 inches of rain here, too. What a relief. But it will be 39 tomorrow night and the garden and plants will be very chilly ... brrr. Have a good weekend.

  6. Dear Lisa,
    Looks as if Spring is in full swing at your house. I love seeing the blooming trees again.
    I am waiting on a snow storm to come....
    Nice you had some rain.

  15. Boy are we getting the rain... it has been raining since Wednesday, with only a few breaks here and there. Today, we're expecting storms and 25-30mph wind gusts. But, the grass and flowers (and birds) are in heaven.

  19. Wow! Look at those clouds! The clouds over here dropped a couple of inches or so of snow. It's okay, though... I think. It shouldn't last long. Just makes Spring that much sweeter! Did you get your rain?? :-)

  20. What a wonderful sky photo - I love those looming clouds! We have had quite a bit of rain over the last couple of days, and the plants have put a spurt of growth on.

  21. Beatiful photos!!! I hope you got the rain you were wishing for. We've had plenty, thanky. Today is cold after the front went through, almost like winter.

  22. Lovely skies!! You know I am always in the car when I see beautiful skies, and I can never photograph them without causing a pile-up.

    I guess the act of driving gives me more time to think about the sky.
