Of clouds and spring activity

What a difference a couple of days can make. The photos below are of the light, scudding and rolling clouds of this morning.

Compare those with this photo taken on Monday morning - rolling but in a heavy ominous way.

©2016 Barry Smith -  Love the deep blue greys of this morning
The mornings are becoming lighter and the evidence of spring can be seen in the bursting buds, colours and the activity of bees and birds.

Seeds are shooting including the clump of pumpkins seedlings in our pumpkin patch. I dug six holes and threw clumps of seeds in thinking a couple would come forth - well I now have six clumps of seedings. I will thin the clumps to the strongest two plants.

I'm enjoying the light and cool of spring.


  1. sky change-marvelous. we're losing light here, but it's mild and beautiful this september.

  2. Lovely photos as usual Barry. Bet it's warmer than here.

  3. Glorious skies, Barry! Such wonderful flowers showing us that Spring really is here. Of course we'll soon have daylight saving to mess with the early mornings but I admit, I don't really mind...

  4. Still so interesting to me to be enjoying the coming of fall here, even as you immerse yourselves in spring. Lovely pics and those skies....just beautiful! Enjoy!

  5. Hi V, P, C & P (aka MBPW) - thanks for checking out the images of our space and commenting. V - it always makes me smile to think of us sharing our places. P - glad it is getting a little warmer. C - I'm already amazed that sunrise is at 5.41am - how can that be? P - it is a good thing that we can share different sides of the globe yet feel so close. All - go well. B
