Sky Watch Friday

I saw this over at The Blessed Country Mom and thought I'd join in this week with Sky Watch Friday.

I took these in the furthest part of our backyard, affectionately referred to as 'The Back 40'. The leaves were just coming in on the poplar trees - note the stark difference between the dead/dying weeping willow:
Notice the location of the dead/dying weeping willow - as large branches have fallen off over the winter, we were lucky that not one of those branches landed on my greenhouse:
Only one tiny cloud was lazily floating in the sky that day:
As I was taking the pictures, an airplane flew overhead - it was cool to see it against the clear blue sky:
And as it flew away, it looked like one of the scattered pieces of that former puffy cloud:

That willow looks very close to the green house! We have a huge willow in our backyard that we love, but it takes a lot of maintenance. What a clear, blue sky!

I'm so jealous, I've always wanted a green house.
Have a great weekend.

Wow, those branches just missed your greenhouse. I would love one of those but then I think I'd always be in there.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day my friend.

How beautiful! One of these days we'll be sitting out in the backyard, sipping our slightly intoxicating cool beverages and looking at that sky while we tell funny stories to each other and just have fun being friends! :)

What a vivid and empty blue sky! We've had nothing but rain rain rain lately so I would love a little empty blue sky!

I swear, if there's a no meme out there, you're sure to find it! LOL!

These pictures are amazing, but I hope you're planning on having that tree cut down this year. If it falls on your greenhouse, it's toast!

Justine :o )

Beautiful blue sky, I love it. What a cool idea. Although that willow is a little scary looking.

Casey said...

That tree looks like it's giving me the finger. What did I ever do to it?

Debbie said...

We had a willow die last year from the drought. Such a sad death.
