gray sky watching


Spring never ceases to amaze me at how gracefully she pulls away from winter. The earth is all decked out in apple blossoms, wild mustard, green leafy trees; yet, there's that heavy April-showers cloud lurking. I took this photo on the last day of April because of just that lovely contrast.
See more beautiful skies from all over our dear planet at Skywatch Friday.

It looks like your sky is getting dark but the green trees and grass does makes it more beautiful scene. Happy weekend!

Hi Noni !
Over here it is the same thing. That is the reason why I'll post something else...

Beautiful photo with that tender springtime green, the blossoms and the bits of yellow - is it gorse?

The silver sky is a great backdrop for the colours of spring.

beautiuful view...it is so delightful to witness the shifting from season to season...how wonderful to be able to slow down enough to pay attention...not everyone does that...they miss so much.

The Pope was in Turin last Sunday, a great day, very uplifting. He said Mass in the piazza San Carlo, then visited the Shroud in the Cathedral and in the evening he met the young people.
Happy weekend, Noni!
