Sky Watch Friday - Post 29

We CAN have blue skies here! I got the proof earlier this week, before the rain (again.) Yesterday was a no rain day, also, but the sky was so unclouded it was not very interesting, Sky Watch-wise, anyway.
Sky Watch Friday (which actually starts on Thursday evening, Greenwich Mean Time (England), is hosted by Tom Wiggers at Welcome to Wiggers World. Please visit his blog to see wonderful sky photos from around the world! It's worth the time.

The trees in front of the sky makes the sky interesting!

Lovely weekend to you from Norway.

Countrygirl said...

Hoorah! Those blue skies remind me of being a kid, laying in the grass and making shapes out of the clouds.

Sandpiper said...

Looks like a gorgeous day, Pat!

fishing guy said...

That was a nice day to capture the Blue Sky.

That looks so clear. Love the photos.

RuneE said...

Me again: Thank yoy for a quick answer! I have learned something new, and that is always nice. I must I admit that I imagined some form of French-type wine-making...

Excellent photo with a very beautiful sky and colors expetaculares, congratulations.

the sky is imitating the trees

Pretty Life Online said...

great catch for SWF! the twinkling sky seemed to throbs off to one body, timed for a common pulse. Mine's up too hope you can drop by.

Brenda said...

Wow! When we visited southwest Missouri for two weeks ending a week a go, my daugthers said on more than one occasion, "Why isn't the sky blue?" Too bad they couldn't have seen the beautiful sky in your picture!

George Townboy said...

Great shot!! Love those cloudy skies!

Ida said...

Beautiful.
Enjoy the good weather. :)

It's so nice to see the blue sky.

Really clear and sharply focused sky.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

The sky in your photo has amazing depth. Stunning!

Ruth Hull Chatlien said...

That's beautiful. That's what I always think of as a classic June sky.

Kay said...

Great shot! We had blue skies here, too. However, I fear thunderstorms tomorrow for our house sale.....sigh...

Louis la Vache said...

It is interesting how some parts of the country are drenched, and California is in drought!

Fine blue sky you posted here!

Skies like this makes me smile :)

Nice sky shot. So glad you had blue skies! The white clouds contrast nicely with the blue sky and green trees.

Lovely sky and clouds. I agree, no clouds makes an uninteresting sky :)

Hahhaaa, I never thought of completely blue skies being a 'curse' until posting for skywatch ;) Gorgeous clouds!

A lovely sky - makes you want a breath of that fresh air.

An absolutely gorgeous Arkansas sky. B. Roan

The Texican said...

Hello Arkansas, You should be getting out of the Nadie season. Good to see some blue skies shining on you. Pappy

luna miranda said...

you've captured one perfect day in Arkansas.:)

John said...

Excellent capture!

Teresa said...

Love the fluffy clouds! It looks like you took this picture from my yard!

eyestothesky said...

Very nice! It looks like a beautiful day!

TSannie said...

Darn, Pat - I could have sworn i commented already! Sorry about that!

Love your picture - you had a blue sky with the intensity I did here in CT when I took my SWF photo. My Missouri parents have said blue MO skies have been scarce this spring! Stay safe in all those storms.

Clouds are just wonderful!

Small City Scenes said...

Beautiful sky. Clouds are always great. We have been having cold and rainy weather and yesterday was beautiful and to us warm (64) so of course today it is raining again. MB

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Ahhh..but did you see the moon in the cloudless sky yesterday? I didn't know what GMT meant....now I do. Have a super great Friday and weekend. :)

Dick said...

Nice shot for SWF

Dragonstar said...

Quite a contrast between this sky and your last one! We can have lovely skies like this, too - honest!

Kathiesbirds said...

Puffy clouds, blue skies, lush green trees, MMN,mmn, mmn! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Dave Coulter said...

I hope you have blue skies all summer! :)

Carole said...

So pretty!

Mental P Mama said...

A nice break for you--terrible weather be gone!

Ramblings of a Villas Girl said...

When you have nothing but rain for so long, we forget what the blue sky and white fluffy clouds look like. When they finally appear, it makes us appreciate it even more. Beautiful photo.

marley said...

Glad you got some sun. I like your shot :)

Willard said...

Nice sky capture! I read your previous post and liked it too!
Ole Abe got a lot of peoples attention with that yarn about running naked in the corn!

Jennifer Robin said...

Beautiful sky, I love the green against the blue. Thanks for your visit to Robin's Woods and the lovely compliment!

Absolutely Beautiful!

Knitting Mania said...

Great sky going on there. Thanks for stopping by, my first time participating in SWF. So much fun, to see different photo's from all over the world...Amazing.

Nice to meet you!

Gattina said...

That's strange ! the view in your picture looks very similar to the view I have from our living room ! and the sky with these fluffy clouds too ! That's amazing because we live so far away from each other !
Sorry I forgot to put the link to my photoblog on my main blog. It is http://gattina-keyholepictures.blogspot.com/

D Herrod said...

Nice

Pietro said...

Very nice view for Sky Watch!

Lew said...

I love the deep blue sky with fluffy, white clouds. When it gets hot here (4 days above 95 this week), we get a lot of haze which detracts from the sky. Thanks for visiting my Sky Watch.

Marvin said...

A beautiful Skywatch sky, Pat, but I know you are getting more of those thunderstorms this evening. They have already passed through our part of the state, but seem to be intensifying to our south. Stay safe and dry.

Lovely bright blue sky. I do hope you get to see some more of it!

lv2scpbk said...

Looks like a nice clear sky.

Dottie said...

Lovely photo! Thanks for stopping by my place. I also do rubber stamping!

Kutuharju said...

Nice contrast, nice colors. I think you are quite right, blue skies is a bit (just a bit) boring to watch. This is interesting.

Louis la Vache said...

Flag Day.

becky voyles said...

Thanks for your kind comments on my Indiana sunset.

Fugazi said...

Summer-sky with disney-like clouds. I like it:)

Thanks for visiting my site. I would not take a bus load of teenagers anywhere on my own but it is part of my job and I do like having a roof over my head, a car to drive, and food to eat. I love your site. I'm making you one of my favs. Be blessed. JC

Kahshe Cottager said...

After the long and dark winter we had this year, a view of blue sky through the trees is very appealing to me!

A perfect sky!
