The Skies ....

A wee bit of dramatic pink in both the skies of Thursday and Friday .. it is HOT and dry and no rain that was forecasted actually happened ... now isn't that a big SURPRISE ???
Look way down in this picture to see that shot of pink before it disappears !
The morning moon was out .. I almost missed her ;-)
This morning another shot of pink with a little wobbly jet stream thrown in for good measure.
See ?
I love this time in the morning .. it is just me and the girls and all those crickets chirping away : )
This morning's moon ... very bright and a bit shy
I have to confess that I bought two plants for the garden yesterday .. I am going through withdrawal caused by my favorite store not having any Halloween treasures in it yet .. why???

Now that you mention it, I haven't seen any Halloween yet either!

Halloween?! Joy, haven't you looked at your counter? There's still 72 days before Halloween! LOL, I'm still trying to hang on to what's left of our pseudo-summer. The weatherman says it's to be 27 degrees today but it feels like a balmy 15 out there with all those dark grey clouds. *sigh* perhaps I should start the countdown to next spring?

You always capture the most beautiful skies! Lovely!
BTW, the dollar store is full of Halloween stuff.

Joy, the pink is good, but the last picture's moon looks like a piece of Mozzarella and makes me suffer since I don't have any in my refrigereator!

I love those sky and moon photos.
My favorites the pinkish skies.

Helloo Eileen girl .. I think there is some in general stores but my favourite is Home Sense because they usually have vintage looking Halloween .. but nothing yet so I am a bit disappointed .. BUT!! I will keep checking !

Hello there Marguerite! LOL hey I think I ran across a garden blog that has actually done that .. now I will go crazy trying to figure out what blog that was ;-)
I was just out in the garden in my flaming night ware doing a bit of dead heading and watering .. we are getting DRY again darn it .. rain please make a visit SOON !
