Skywatch Friday

I opened my eyes tentatively this morning. Beyond the window the sky was pink, delicately pink.

It wasn't even six o'clock, and so my eyes closed lazily, but my mind said 'pink sky, pink sky'.....

And so I got up and here are the lovely pictures that were my reward.













The Sunflowers and I, nodding with wonderment at the early morning painters who make the dawn glow so beautifully...

What exquisite skies you found Hildred - well worth the early rising I should say.

Thank you for visiting, - our internet has been down so I haven't had the opportunity to see all your wonderful postings, - yet!

Dawn, and then sunrise (I think there is a difference) are truly lovely here and worth slipping out, even in one's nightgown, so you don't miss a moment.
