I'm sick of winter!

I took these photos of the sky over the Como Park conservatory in St. Paul at noon today, SO

let the record show that on this date the sun came out and the sky was blue for one solid day--an event not witnessed for at least 7 days beforehand. I can prove it by the photo below of the Capitol in St. Paul that I took last week. That was the only day that week the sun was out too. For more beautiful sky views and less whiny commentary from fellow photographers, visit SkyWatch Friday. Happy weekend!

The old cathedrals are good,
but the great blue dome that
hangs over everything is better.

You certainly captured some beautiful blue sky, made even more impressive over the dome.

I understand how you feel about winter. But even for just a day, let us rejoice for the blue skies!

I'm happy for your sun, and the photos are superb. We visited the Como Park about 4-1/2 years ago when in MSP for a wedding. We got some great pictures of our 3-year-old there.

Wonderful photos! Love the blue sky! Yes, we need more of it. I enjoyed your "whiny" commentary, too.

Many years ago, the kids and I toured Como Park Zoo and Conservatory on one of our summer outings to the Twin Cities.

Lovely skies, and a lovely blog too! I laughed at Groucho's quote about reading. :) Carry on, and have a wonderful Sunday!
