SkyWatch Friday: Varied sky shots

The purple band of color behind the tree at sunset reminds me of a mountain.

 Below the jets were drawing on the sky.

 I frequently see birds on the branch tips of the tree below.
 We've had many days where the sky is gray until sunset and then the colors and shapes burst out.
 I like the silhouettes of birds that I see at the end of the day.
Most of my sunset shots are taken from my bedroom window.
Especially this time of the year I get better sunset angles from inside than when I go outside.
It's different in the summer when the best sunset shots around my house are taken from the street.
I use the term sunset loosely because it's the colorful sky I can capture from home not so much the sun itself going down.
 From home the sun itself is hidden by trees before it changes colors.
 I see a heart and a kite shape in the sky below.
 The next shot was one I took from my driveway facing east while the sun was going down in the west.
 The clouds have been great this winter.
 I love cotton ball clouds against a blue sky, a statement I make on my blog frequently.
I keep thinking I'll try captions in between shots but that takes me longer than rambling sentences.
 I love the sky reflected in the lake.
 The gulls like to line up on the bridge railing.
 We even had one day over the past seven with a solid blue sky.
 The little warbler below was keeping an eye on me.
 It's looking more and more like spring.
Every time I see flowers I photograph them because we had a string of warm days but it's turning cold again and most of the early flowers won't last long.
We usually have our last frost date in April so not too long before we'll be past the freeze thaw pattern.
