I remembered to take some photos for SkyWatch Friday this morning, while the sun was in the east.  I'm in garden mode these days, so included flowers in the pics.

The clematis, 'Purpurea Plena Elegans' is one of my favorite blooms right now.

The tall plant right next to the fence is rattlesnake master.  It prefers more sun and a dryer soil than what it gets, but has done fine the 2 years it's been there.  The purple next to it is a delphinium, and yarrow is in the background.  Oh, and the sky is nice and blue to the south.

There were some nice fluffy clouds to the north, peering through the yarrow and a neighboring tree.

To see skies from all over the world, click on the SkyWatch Friday button in the sidebar.  Have a great weekend!
