Sky Watch - Post 84

Nothing but blue skies do I see!
 
A hint of fall is in the air here in Arkansas, with temps falling into the 50's at night. A bit of color is showing in the leaves of the crepe myrtle in my yard; I thought it made a nice contrast to the uninterrupted blue of the sky today.
Sky Watch was created by Dot and is now brought to you by our friends Imac, Klaus, Sandy and Tom. Visit the Sky Watch Friday home page anytime after 7:30 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time on Thursdays to see sky photos from around the world.

Wow, those colors are nice. We're having the same weather--but rain is badly needed.

Great shot, Pat!

Lucky, lucky, lucky to have blue skies shining on you!

Great photo with sharp, vivid, even brilliant, colors, Pat!

Are you and I the only ones *singing* the caption? (the second line of a long-ago popular song called "Blue Skies")

Let's hope not!

At first I yhought it was red birds sitting in the tree,but then I read what you had written,and realiced that it was the leaves that had that beautiful red colour. Wonderful photo!

I needed a good pick-me-up and this photo did it! I loved the "blue skies" writings you added to it! The red against the blue sky is great!
