SkyWatch Friday: New Life Springs up against the Sky

I love this time of the year when everything outdoors seems so fresh and new.
It's been a mix of weather where I live in terms of rainy, cloudy, sunny.
I like the variety of spring days.
Hopefully we're past any hard freezes and we probably are.
In the part of NC where I live our average last frost day is around mid April.
Even on our rainy days the sky has started to be colored with green leaves and flowers.     skywatDSCN5867
We've also had some blue skies which are nice.
The shots are a jumbled mix.
They were all taken over the past six days.
Hard to decide which shots to use this week.
I tend to take more pictures during the changing seasons.
Particularly in the spring and then fall it seems like the changes happen on a daily basis.
The amount of blue sky shots are misleading. There were more pictures I liked on the sunny days.
The sky is hidden by the trees in some of these shots but that's the way it is when I look up this time of the year.

The skies are wonderful and the last two shots of the dogwood are my absolutely favorites...I would frame them if they were mine! I love sharing in your seasonal change, because I don't experience this one!

Wonderful spring shots, Carver, I love alle those blossoms and the fresh green trees under the clear blue sky.
Overhere spring is late, but in some days we'll have the first blossoms in our garden too, I hope.
