SkyWatch Friday

"The sky is the part of creation in which nature has done for the sake of pleasing man".
John Ruskin

It just so happens that today's Nature Quote of the Day fits perfectly with SkyWatch Friday. I love how the sky is framed by these showy daisies. I had been helping with a project of weeding this flower bed. It is quite large, and there were a lot of weeds. I stood up from my hunched over position and saw this scene. I thought it was a perfect opportunity for a SkyWatch photo.

It looks as if the flowers are all looking up to the beautiful sky and just like us skywatching as well.

It reminds me a little of the classic windows desktop background, except yours is much nicer. I never thought nature cared much about pleasing us, but seeing your photo, I'm willing to reconsider.

Are you kidding me?!?! You were weeding that? It is a mountain, not a flower bed! It looks great! You do amazing work! I love the beautiful piture, too! You should take it photography as a side job! I would totally buy a calendar of yours!

All I can say is Bautiful and I am breathless. It makes me want to lay down in the middle of them and take a nap or watch the clouds go by.
