Sky Watch Friday!

Time to share your skies, the beauty over your world, the clouds, the colors! Sky Watch is hosted each week by  the Sky Watch team of  Sandy and I. And this week as every week, we remember Klaus and know that he joins us in spirit! Join us and the many people from all over the world who share theirs with us each week! 
Our weather is really crappy, but spring is on the way in spite of that -- trees are blooming, budding out and there are patches of color scattered everywhere! Hope to get some beautiful skies soon to go with the colors!  Enjoy your weekend!!

I love your big ole lofty clouds. I love the quote about just living your life. I love that.

Have a great day Sylvia. Another day over 80 here. Most years Tulsa is chilly in March.

It's nice to say skies are ever wonderful over Puget Sound, and they are if you like the wet stuff as I do, but your images today are, as always, beautiful!

Colours in the fourth picture are lovely, but I think I like your fluff in picture two the best! Have a great weekend.

Al said...

Lovely skies, even if they are from the archives. I'd love to see some flowers against your grey skies, as we have the opposite - no flowers for a while yet, but plenty of blue skies. I hope you and Sam have a great weekend, give him a pat from Socks and me.

Theanne said...

Fantastic range of skies. Have a nice weekend. I plan to.

Sylvia, Hope your weather improves. Definitely, Spring is "in the air". I'm anxious for some pretty flowers to start blooming so I can take pics. Lovely puffy clouds in your pics--great shots. As always, your quotes are well worth remembering. Have a terrific weekend. Mickie :)

I like the big billowing (cumulous?) clouds in the second photo and the last one is a gorgeous sunset with the silhouetted trees in the foreground. Have a great weekend, Sylvia. We've been having rail all week and it's supposed to continue through the weekend, but that's a good thing for CA!

R1 said...

Those are clouds you could float away on!

Mary Howell Cromer said...

I learned a new word this week and I shall use it with your cloud images. They are lovely, flouncey puffs of happiness. Anything that Albert Schweitzer had to say, was always so rich! Have a Happy weekend Sylvia~

Judy said...

I love the last shot - maybe I am just not ready for blue skies, but feel the need for more colour???

NatureFootstep said...

Is this spring skies now? They all look great.

Stewart M said...

Hi there like the last picture and quote.

Splendid Little Stars said...

lovely skies and quotes! I especially like the first quote--something to seriously ponder.

The weather here has been mostly rainy or rainy-looking, but warm. Bulbs are bursting forth and the trees are budding out. So it's cheerful, nonetheless.

Max-e said...

Hi Sylvia, a nice set of skies for SFW. Thanks for your visits and comments and I hope you have a great weekend.

Kay said...

Our skies are so cloudy and gray over here in Hawaii that it's uplifting to see your gorgeous blue skies. Have a great weekend, Sylvia!

SandyCarlson said...

There's some delightful drama in those skies!

NixBlog said...

What delightful skies, all of them! The last one is my fave in this lot!

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
