SkyWatch Friday - Welcoming fall and blue skies

Winter is coming and the weather is changing, with the afternoons still hot, but not unbearable, and the nights turning colder. It is already dropping down into the upper 40s-low 50s here. With the change in season comes an anticipation not unlike what I felt as a kid in the Midwest, with summer approaching. I love winter in the desert and am looking forward to it. The weather today was absolutely perfect. I took some pictures of the incredible blue sky. The first is my Cholla, then a neighbors Cyprus, the third is looking up into my Olive tree, and the last one is looking through the babies hanging from my Spider Plant.

Oh these are really neat! I like the one looking through the spider plant babies! We saw these cyprus trees around in southern california when we were out there...they are so pretty!

Your first photo is a great contrast between white puffy clouds and a densely spiny cactus.

I love the curtains in front of your skies, especially the first rather prickly one.

These are all beautiful but my favorite is the Cypress. So glad you liked the Pheasant Hunting post ... I will stay in touch with you too. Have a great day. As a matter of fact, we are moving all of our potted plants in today ... I think there are about 90 and some are pretty huge. xoxo.
