Skies from Father's Day

In my Corner Garden blog, I posted some photos of the garden tour where people garden with wildlife in mind.  I want to post some photos from the tour that include the sky.  I had gotten a late start due to a thunderstorm.  It continued to rain off and on throughout the day.  It felt like the clouds and sun were having a bit of a battle.

This is how the skies looked a couple hours before I left.

These photos were taken from an acreage on the edge of our city.

As I was driving to my parents, another thunderstorm with huge lightening arrived in the area.  To see skies from all over the world, or find out how to post yours, click on the SkyWatch button in the sidebar.

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.

Night Sky for SWF

I couldn't remember if I had any photos on my camera, and remembered I hadn't posted for SkyWatch Friday, so I went out in the dark and took some photos, using my night setting.  One is passable for SWF.  Click on the button to see skies from all over the world, or find out how to post yours.

It's really spring, in case we weren't sure yet.  I'm so excited to see all the changes in the plants and flowers as the season progresses.  I thank God for the interests He's given me.
