Cloudy Skies

I was sitting down to do my Bible study lesson for tonight's cell group, and it was John 15:1-11.  These are the verses where Jesus said He was the vine, and we are the branches.  That reminded me I hadn't posted for awhile, and when I realized today is Thursday here, but Friday will soon begin in other parts of the world, I decided to go out and take some photos for SkyWatch Friday.  To see skies from all over the world, click on the SkyWatch button in the sidebar.

It's overcast, with rain expected soon.  I got some plants put in this morning before the morning shower.  It did not last long, though, so if it doesn't rain more, I'll need to get out and water the new plants.

I like to take photos of plants with the sky in the background.  The sky blends in with the blog's background in this one.  This is a clematis vine.

 We had to have the tree in the front yard cut down this spring.  The view from the porch is different.

This clematis does not climb, so it needs to be tied up to the porch railing.

Facing north, the sky is more visible without the tree, but it is not a sunny day.

I am thankful for the rain, even though it meant my sky was not much to look at.
