Hi think the weather Gods knew all along ...the message just didn't get through to the weather Gurus down below....

A beautifully pregnant sky...

happy days

That is a pleasant mistake! I cannot believe those clouds. AMAZING!! The photo is powerful! I can't even imagine seeing those with my own eyes!

Elisabeth said...

Those weather gods appear to be at war in this dazzling picture, Steven. Thanks.

jinksy said...

But I bet that made the rain gods laugh inside their clouds!

delwyn - i was able to watch this sky move across the hills and grow in bulk and intricacy - much like a pregnant woman!! steven

steven said...

hi jenny - i was able to take several photographs but i liked this one for it's shading and also for the way it captured what it felt like. steven

steven said...

hi elisabeth - it was a bit windy but otherwise quiet. i stood by the edge of a field of corn - still very young. i love watching clouds moving. storm clouds especially. steven

steven said...

jinksy - they do what they do and that's all there is to it right!!! steven

The year is turning. Time for rain. The snow queen must now return to the south pole for the northern hemisphere's summer.

Steven yes about the similarities in Linda Sue's vacation place and the Summerhouse. Both are just one step to the left of the usual, both of them are little pieces of fairyland here in our reality.

Damn you are good.

You do so much with 'simple words' stated simply ~~ with the 'complex variety' too.

hope said...

We could use a little of that right now! It's so windy right now, we look like a photo from the Dust Bowl era.

Hmmm, maybe I'll print your picture and go hold it up to the sky, so it'll get the right idea. :)

steven said...

reya - i am brought to wonder when i see structures like the one you shared and the ones that linda sue shared, what might be the effect if that was commonplace? how might that affect the psyche of innocent passersby? steven

steven said...

helen - i can see what you are saying and then also there's your role in the relationship - you do so much with the 'simple words' and with the 'complex' variety that i share also. without your creative insightful mind, the words go nowhere. so thankyou! steven

steven said...

hope - it's been very windy here for two weeks but it's not dust bowl like just yet. very green actually. however, the rain this weekend will be a real gift to people on wells, the farmers, the gardners and then those of us who love nothing better than to sit by the window reading and listening to the rain. steven

We had some of that rainy stuff, too. But snow! NO! It's lilac time. No snow allowed, I say.

This has surely been an interesting season, Steven. Hope you and your loved ones are doing well. I'm not around as much lately, but it's not because I don't care. Just so busy lately and am going on a trip (business)-so takes me out again. Every time I come here, I always feel better.

steven said...

bee i am right with you. it's alright to rain but i'm done witht he snow. but the i'm only saying that in my head 'cause the weather gods do as they please as you know. steven

steven said...

boomer - a visit once in a while is just as lovely as every day. i am glad to see you up and around. busy. that's a good thing. steven

snow?? for mayday i'd rather have the rain! which i am having, in fact, and the "lawn" is sniggering because it knows it will not be mowed.
have a good one!
