SkyWatch Friday: Speckled with clouds and blue speckled with leaves

Halloween morning was quite beautiful with blue skies speckled with clouds but it ended up pouring down rain on the tricker treaters that night. The temperatures dropped below freezing too but by then it had stopped raining.

It rained so hard that I had some fairy princesses run inside my house when I opened the door. The parent who was at the bottom of the steps under an umbrella was scandalized and hollered at the children not to run into my house. The children very sensibly replied, but it's raining. I gave them some candy and off they went.
We also had some all blue sky days with the leaves providing the speckled look.
I like the way leaves can make patterns against the sky much as clouds do.

Our clouds looked just like that the other day, and I commented to my husband about them how I really liked how they looked.

Awesome shots, shame about the weather for the children but I am sure they still managed to get a haul of sweeties to eat. Love the skies and the autumnal colours, have a great weekend:)

These are the prettiest blue skies I have seen tonight. They are yummy. A gal treat for the eyes. They do no t look like they could have ever carried any rain. genie

Beautiful leafy patterns against the blue skies (before it started to rain obviously). Loved the image of the little princesses dashing inside. (It ALWAYS seemed to rain on Halloween when our kids were little).
