Colorful day

Today it is dark and gloomy and raining - like it's been all week.  But yesterday!  Yesterday was an odd duck of a day!

The sky turned a funny color. 

Temps were in the 50s for a while and look what happened.  The sky flowed down to the water in the birdbath and it got all loose and wobbly and the birds couldn't walk on it.  They'd land and get all wet.  So funny! LOL

Finally the sky made its way to the ground!  See see! The myrtle isn't just green anymore!

It was unnerving.  Today the gloom has reclaimed it own so it's a good thing I had the sense to take pics yesterday to document it all.  Otherwise I'm sure no one would believe such a fantastic tale. :-/

Oh Spring - where is thy smile???

  1. Hi Kris,

    Thanks for visiting my blog...I'm glad you enjoyed it!

    I'm enjoying looking at yours too, as I'm a perennial lover.

  2. Hi Kris,
    I love the reflections in your bird bath. It has been hard waiting for our favorite spring weather.

    I read something Kylee said on her blog that made me feel better. She said now that we've had a few blooms, we will keep having some until next winter.

    My word verification is, "spidally". I know it's not a word, but it should be. :o)

  3. Alica - don't miss my other blog pages (top of sidebar). I have a need to categorize things. LOL Glad you visited. :-D

    Sue - Oh, let's hope Kylee's on to something. LOL Spidally? Maybe something spindly fell into a web? ;-D

  4. I think everyone's weather has been very strange so far.

    Last week we were too cold; yesterday it was 86° and may hit 90° by Sunday. Of course, severe weather won't be far behind.

    It seems to me most of my things are almost in a holding pattern with little growth. We do need rain.

  5. Glenda - yeah, plants (and planters) alike are dazed and confused by the weather. Climate change is going to make for some very challenging gardening from now on....


Thank you for visiting. I appreciate your notes, comments and questions and will try to reply to each one! :-)
