that same ole' sky


Two different views of the same sky from inside the botanical gardens I visited in St. Paul last week. On the left is a bird's eye view from the new rainforest exhibit called Tropical Encounters.
The sky's reflection falls on a lovely fountain statue is from the Sunken Garden's winter flower show.
See more sky views here.
Happy Friday!

Woa! That last picture caught me by surprise......I thought it was a skinny dipper at first glance! See, I have no artistic gifting at all!!!

Poor lass she'll catch her death of clod like that. Beautiful images. Can't help think about Manx myths when I see her.

Beautiful takes on the theme, Noni. Nice to have access to such a fine botanical garden as that, especially in winter. Have a great weekend!
