SkyWatch - Surprise from Heaven

Light through scattered clouds

well, with just a little bit more cloud

resolving into nothing much

when, half inch hailstones smashed into the tulips 
and lilac at it's best
that's spring for you, when something is perfect, boom

half an hour later, they were fluffy and innocent

like a fluffy monster swimming on a lake of clear water

or a pink iceberg.

Ah, the vagaries of weather!

OUR WORLD, Nature Notes & Wild Bird Wednesday - Demolition Squad, Sulphur-crested Cockatoos

A big, big thank you to all me blog friends for their kindness
and support during my recent bereavement .

Now it is time to concentrate on another year successfully 
completed and enjoy the day.

As soon as the sun was up, my demolition squad arrived
and had a good look at the job on hand

C'm on man, time to get started!

Hard Yakka but somebody's gotta to do it

Hey Mabel, look at me!!!

Oh yeah? See how much I've done at this end!

It may be hard work but it is kinda fun!

TODAY'S FLOWERS, Weekend Flowers & Floral Friday - Spring in Full Force

Spring has busted out all over while I wasn't looking

The crabapple 'Floribunda', that sparingly flowered all winter
surprised me with more blossom than ever

my deep pink flowering almond thought it was boring so it 
added some pink sports!

The oak just had to get in the act and it looks like wi'll have
a great crop of acorns for the pigs to enjoy

and yippee! I have masses and masses of tulips.
I'll show you more next time.

SkyWatch - An odd sky

Driving down to town to collect my husband's ashes
with my soul slightly tattered around the edges,

I was heading right for this odd looking sky

I turned a corner out of a tiny town and stopped on a rise
to see what was going on.

It really seemed like riding a rolling surf,
just a bit different to anything I had seen before.

Do check out the wonder of the skies around the world!

SkyWatch - Hope

Though lately the skies have been grey and 
I have been a little out of focus

the afterglow is starting to come through again

sometimes it fades a little but I know there is colour in life 
and one day soon it will be as bright as ever.
