SkyWatch - "Early one morning, just as the day was dawning . . .S


striking light effect that does not
reach the clouds yet


a few minutes later
and the clouds are revealed in all their glory


This afternoon I lay on my back on the lawn and
studied the grey, cloudy skies
I have not done so since I was a child.

I'll be doing so again often.

Linking with SkyWatch

with many thanks to all who keep the meme going

  14. Both are amazing! When we were children, my brother and I used to lay down on the grass and look for shapes in the clouds. Fun times.

  15. Wonderful photos. Contemplating the skies while have full contact with the earth is what I call green therapy. And it works for all of us.

  24. A good reminder - to lay on the lawn & watch the sky.
    I look forward to mild days ahead & to do just that.
    Beautiful skies, Arija. The sun made it's way out of the clouds here this evening after a week of constant cold dark rain. Not only did the birds & frogs sing.. I did too!

  30. For watercress soup, sweat a chopped onion in a small amount of butter until the onion is transparent, then add a medium sized chopped potato, a chopped bunch of watercress, less the really tough lower stalks, half a pint of chicken stock (or veggie stock) and half a pint of milk. Cover and simmer for about twenty minutes, then put through the liquidiser. Just before serving add a generous amount of single cream (you could do this by swirling it on to the top of each bowl, which is what I do). Season to suit your taste - enjoy.
