Sky Watch!

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 led by Yogi, Sandy and Sylvia. 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!  http://skyley.blogspot.com/ 
 The first ten days I was in Portland it RAINED!!! and the skies were gray, gray, gray!! When we finally had some sunshine it was in the middle of the week, no way for me to get around other than around the back yard!! It was good to see the blue, but obviously no wide view!!

You've had enough rain right now! Hope you get to see more of those blue skies.

JM said...

Not a wide view but a lot of beautiful greens to cheer you up.

But just look at all those beautiful trees Sylvia, what wonderfully green spot your new apartment is in..

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

It looks like great views from the back yard.

TexWisGirl said...

gonna miss your mountain views, but so glad you're settled.

Steffi said...

Hi Sylvia, I do believe you've had more sunshine in Portland than I have here in south Florida- where the sun shines most of the time.
Thanks for sharing your bits and pieces of beautiful sunny skies- it brightened my day!

Blue sky is the same everywhere! :-) We've finally had 3 days of sunshine too but they say we're now in for thunderstorms...

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Pouring rain here in Florida today (tropical storm warnings). I wish I was in Oregon, where at least the rain isn't scary.

I'm so glad you're back in blogland.

HansHB said...

Great sky in your photos!

Tara R. said...

Some of your best views are from your own back porch. Lovely blue skies, after so much rain and gloom.

Karen said...

I like your view Sylvia! That's what I love about skywatching, no matter where you are, just look up and it's there!

Joe Todd said...

Thanks Sylvia

Betsy Adams said...

Hope you get some sunshine for awhile. We are having another rainy day here today.. Seems like we've had an over-abundance of rain (for us) this spring. BUT--I'd rather have the rain than drought (which we have had before several times)...

Nice sky photos --and I can't wait to see more of your area.

Hugs,
Betsy

Beautiful Skies. Happy SWF.

NatureFootstep said...

at least you found some nice blue skies. I hope everything will turn out great.

afanja said...

I'm glad you've had some blue skies above your new home. I think your view is about as wide as mine in our garden. I hope you get used to it soon and will happy with it as much as possible.

Penelope Postcards said...

I see that all that rain has produced an awful lot of green to contrast with the blue skies. :)

Pat said...

Looks like the rain has made the air crisp and clear. The colors are all so vibrant! Have a fun, relaxing weekend, Sylvia!

Terrebel said...

When it never rains you'll never be able to really enjoy the sunshine, Sylvia! Have a great weekend!

Terrence looks at the sky

Jack said...

That is a tough start, Sylvia. The only way from here is UP!

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

Isn't the greenery of the tree a beautiful sight! Hooray spring!
Cheers from Cottage Country!

Al said...

It looks like a pretty yard. I can't imagine 10 days of rain in a row. I hope you're settling in to your new place, and have a great weekend.

Ann, Chen Jie Xue 陈洁雪 said...

Jacques Prévert is right, we can't be happy all the time.

Kusum Sanu said...

Happiness is like blue sky, there is some grey-time to!

magiceye said...

Beautiful shots!!

Meghana Hassan said...

The blue and white sky and the lush green trees, just a wonderful combo...Happy SWF...

Arija said...

As long as you can look up and see a patch of blue, the world is all right. Beautiful as your grand views were, it is best to be contented with what we have and enjoy the memories.
Well, Portland is known for it's copious rain, but so was Seattle.
I like your private view of heaven . . .

Karen said...

Glad you have some blue skies to show us, lovely shots and I like the second quote, very true.

Mridula said...

Lovely skies Sylvia. I have traveling so much that I have been missing sky watches. By end of June, I think things will settle down a bit. Enjoy your new place and the skies.

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.
