SkyWatch Friday: Blooms, clouds, blue


When I drove up my driveway the other day and glanced at the side of my house, the blue sky was so vivid it made me pull out my camera.

On an overcast day my dogwood tree was blowing back and forth.

The way the dogwoods branches mingle with the oak tree branches make it hard to tell where one starts and the other stops, although the dogwood is much shorter and smaller than the oak.

I have a cherry tree variety which has very small blossoms.

The dogwood on the left reaches across my driveway to the oak on the right.

You take the most beautiful nature shots. Your skid, flowers, and just landscapes in general are always memorable. You really do have that magic touch and eye for just the right moment to push the shutter. genie

Your spring yard blooms are still gorgeous!
The sky above your house was indeed a deep lovely blue.

All your spring blooms are so beautiful against the blue sky. Last year when we got back to Oregon there were still Dogwoods in bloom. I hope for that again.

Pat said...

That is a stunning deep blue sky! And all the flowering trees at your house and the neighborhood are just lovely. I love the dogwood blossoms. We have them here, too, in the northern California foothills. There's a saying here in the foothills, "Spring's not here until there's snow on the dogwoods." I think that means snow on the dogwood blossoms.

Rajesh said...

Wonderful shots. The flowery trees look great against the sky.

Gillian Olson said...

Love all these shots, you have some beautiful trees. I can't believe the dogwood is in flower already.

You've made a wonderful spring post of it, Carver. It's great to see all the lovely flowers and the friendly blue sky.
Overhere we had the same weather during the last weeks, but since yesterday it's cloudy and much colder again.
