SkyWatch - Odd, dynamic, promising?


Summer is gone and has sprung straight into winter
the electric blanket pre-heats my bed
the heater is stoked
we have already had a frost 
and my tomatoes get covered at night 
in case they still have a chance to ripen


the sky was fun to watch and very fast moving


streaming past or bubbling up like boiling water


a vague hope still burned but still no rain
. . . almost three months now
and  frost dries out the soil even more


hope you are all well
and also that I could get to blogging again
and start catching up on all your doings.

  14. No rain and frost already??? You do tend to have wet winter's over there though don't you? Our summer is when we often have most rain. Love your captures of the clouds, very dramatic.

  15. Like the changing skies but do wish those beautiful clouds would bring you rain. I hope the cooler weather is kind to you health wise.

  16. That certainly is a dramatic sky event, and the analogy of a kettle of boiling water is a good one. Very elemental.
    Wishing you rain. And autumn!

  17. Oh my goodness that is harsh to jump from one season and skip another....here we are still waiting for spring as winter will not release its grasp.

  22. Beautiful skies, but too bad they didn't contain any rain. Our snow is melting early and with a lower winter snowpack thatn normal we'll be looking for rain soon too to keep the wildfires down this summer.

  23. Such a terrible tease those billowing clouds are and how frustrating not to get the much needed rain.

  24. Our Winter still lingers and I think I need an electric blanket too. The skies are just wonderful, full of great movement. Hugs to you~

  25. A beautiful collection of cloud&sky photoes!

  26. Nice clouds. I gave up our tomatoes this weekend - removed and soil dug over. Always a bit of a marker for the turning of the year.

    I think your answer to the nationality question is a classic.

  27. Looks cold! winter was late leaving here this year, but signs of spring are appearing.

  28. Hello, hello!!! How happy I was to see you again! Your clouds are magnificent. It's no wonder that you spend so much time gazing at nature. It's so wondrous in your part of the world. Ahhh, then again, maybe it's not necessarily your part of the world, but you who brings wonder to it. xoxoxo

  31. such gorgeous sky photographs! Each one.
    so you enter autumn and we enter spring. always an interesting thing.
    please email me with your choice of photographs, or if you prefer a greeting card from my shop. It is my pleasure to send you one! I believe you can respond to this comment as an email to me. thank you so much for identifying the flowers.... i really tried and could not find them. They are not common. Perhaps a garden plant gone wild? Lovely Easter to you.
