Thursday Morning Sky Photos

It was cloudy when I first went out with my camera this morning, but as time went by, the sun came out, and the clouds turned white and fluffy.  I took lots of photos of some of my favorite subjects against the sky for SkyWatch Friday.  To see skies from all over the world, or find out how to post yours, click on the link in my sidebar.

The middle flower buds are rough goldenrod.  Baptisia and false sunflowers are on the other side of the fence.

This light pole is not so pretty, and it doesn't even work, but it stays up, because my father-in-law put it up, and it reminds us of him.  The morning glories are on their march to the top.

There are all kinds of obstacles to a clear view from my yard.  The birds sure love to perch on the wires.

If I look straight up, I can see unobstructed clouds.

The tree across the street, on the right, is almost finished blooming.

I went out later in the morning to take closer photos so the blooms would show, but they are still hard to see.

I used my zoom to get a better view of something pretty in the sky.

While out, I thought this hibiscus looked nice with the sky in the background.

This posts at 1:30 my time, and somewhere in the world, it's Friday.  Have a great weekend!
