Sky Show

When the sun tries to overpower the drizzly rain, the combat between the elements can certainly leave a beautiful sky show. The overwhelming expanse of layered clouds dwarfed the magnificent mountain with a maze of powerful white swirls and grey cotton balls.

The contrast in cloud layers provided no clues in predicting tomorrow’s weather. The low, yellowish clouds suggest rain, but the higher, ribbed clouds tell me it must have been blowing a gale in the upper atmosphere. It looks like there’s a high-flying ‘plane in the upper, righthand corner of the photo too.

A few minutes later, the setting sun added another dimension of interest to the clouds, with a yellow glow attempting to pierce the thick cottonwool layers.

After getting through my end-of-week work related chores on the computer this morning, I spent most of the afternoon beginning an update on my blog. I now have a new domain name, provided by WordPress – I also updated my “About” page. Does anyone else ever think to update the details on their blog? I find that over the years, things change – my thoughts mainly – so I need to rewrite the synopsis of my blog. If anyone cares to read the new page, it can be found here.

When I took the dogs out for a walk in the garden at around sunset, besides the magical sky show, I discovered that the plants I recued from a pile of rubble outside our yard last weekend all seem to have taken well to their new homes. I didn’t hold out much hope for the petunia, so planted it straight into the ground in a sheltered area under a frangipani tree, and even it looks happy.

I think Eliza identified this plant as a type of periwinkle. I hope it continues to thrive in its new location. πŸ™‚

    1. Oh, it’s the link above that says “Welcome to My World”! I should have mentioned that, sorry Frank. :/
      The sky is anything but boring these days at our place, ever-changing, as you say. πŸ™‚


  1. The second picture is very dramatic! I enjoyed reading the new synopsis of your blog, a thorough and interesting introduction to your world. I reorganized my blog sometime last summer, I think, and decided to do away with an about page and just put a very short introduction in the sidebar, summing up the basics. Seemed like my inner minimalist trying to assert itself. πŸ™‚ It’s so interesting all the different kinds of about pages personal bloggers create.

    1. Your “inner minimalist” – I like that! πŸ™‚
      I enjoy reading “about” any new bloggers that I come across, and I agree with you, the introductions are wide and varied. πŸ™‚


    1. I have just the place to plant my saved vincas too, Eliza. I have read that they are a good ground cover, so I will plant them, when the weather cools slightly, in a sloping garden that I can see from the front rooms of my house. πŸ™‚
