I had been moaning and groaning about what gorgeous areas some of the other bloggers live in and the vistas they see .. like Carol from Flower Hill Farm , Kate from High Altitude Gardening, Jodie from Bloomwriter (Nova Scotia always has an edge for me : ) to name just a few.
In any case .. since it had been a while with not seeing gorgeous skies I had been feeling sorry for myself .. that happens in between the absolute drive myself into the ground it is finally garden time !!!
This morning reminded me how lucky I truly am to see such amazing skies .. so I took picture after picture because it changes so quickly it overwhelms me.
My neighbor's pear tree .. so straight and tall as if some one drew it that way for me to use it as an anchor for these pictures : )
The colours were more vibrant than the camera picked up and my heart was beating so hard and fast .. these are the times I don't give a HOOT about what the neighbors think of me .. IF anyone is up as early as I am seeing me dance on my deck ?
That impossible GLOW of the sun so slowly making its way west as I am tracking how far east it is finally rising at .. it is key to some of my photos because I can catch an amazing fireball just about May ... hopefully .. in that pine tree to the left .. which I love as equally as the pear : )
There are layers upon layers of colour cloaking the sky .. some thin like see through veils .. some dark and smudgy ? .. I see it all and it totally blows me away.
The clouds were closing fast again .. I was pleading with them not to advance , but do they listen to me ?
The stark tree branches are great contrasts to the soft clouds .
See the smudgy clouds taking over the show .. I can't fault them for lack of drama .. they are beautiful !
So there was my show that morning .. I watch every morning for any detail I can pick up with a sunrise .. I can't believe there are people that don't see how amazing this whole process is .. this is my second love to my first with gardening ... oops ... husband and son are in there too .. and of course the "girls" .. I am very lucky indeed : )
Alas .... the dark side wins this time .. but it won't be long before those long sunny mornings and days take over and we are deep in our garden thoughts : )
