Early morning beauty........................

At 7:30 this morning the skies were so beautiful.......when DH picked up his paper at the end of the driveway, he hurried back up and told me to come outside quickly with the camera.  He was right, the low cloud bank beyond the houses down the street looked almost like a mountain range, the golden clouds puffy 
like a soft duvet gently falling lower and enveloping the landscape.

Now, just over an hour later - and yes, I should be in the kitchen baking another batch of cookies - the rain is tippling down and the sun is nonexistent. Not complaining though because I'm hearing stories of terrible weather conditions in other parts of the country, and especially in Eastern Canada where I have dear blog friends. You know who you are, you know I'm hoping you are OK, but know that power is out in many places and you may be 
unable to communicate. Stay safe and remember we are thinking of you.


  1. Hello Mary

    Thanks for popping by, noticed your comment as I did a very brief xmas post.
    Hope you had a lovely thanksgiving and have a great xmas.
    Haven't posted for a while with the house, just resigned from one of my jobs, weekends away etc.
    It was my birthday last week and Andy bought me a lovely new camera, so will be back blogging very soon :-)

  2. Oh wow! Those pictures are absolutely gorgeous! Love the way you have framed them, too. Best wishes, Tammy

  3. Hi Mary, I'm here and so far we are okay. We've had ice pellets and freezing rain for 3 days now and the trees are getting heavier looking but so far the power is still on. Thanks for thinking of us up here! We appreciate it. Your morning sky photos are just gorgeous. I love the soft gold and grey in the clouds and sky and they make a stunning mosaic. Have a great day!

  4. These are spectacular sky photos! What a nice present from God!

  5. Hope you have a wonderful holiday!

  6. Stunning photos - we have partly cloudy skies - but not spectacular at the moment - but quiet and pleasant - which is nice in its own way.

  7. Beautiful photos Mary. Seems like this winter we have had quite a bit of rain, but it makes for some great pics!


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
