Beautiful Blues and Blossoms

We had a wonderful break in the weather today. After two days of heavy rainfall the sun came out unexpectedly. The sky was a beautiful blue. The icing on the cake was the beautiful blossoms which I mentioned in this post as being several weeks too early. But I can certainly enjoy them now.

We are expecting more heavy rain throughout the next week. I imagine that will destroy a lot of the beautiful blossoms depicted in these photos. Hopefully there are still many trees in other parts of the city that haven't blossomed yet and I can enjoy another week.

 I've got a lot of catch up to do after being sidelined by a bad cold for the past two weeks. I'm not 100% over it but close enough. I'm relieved! I hope you have all a wonderful weekend full of fun things.

If you missed my post for Our World Tuesday you can catch it here.
The sky was definitely different.

I'm linking up with Skywatch Friday today.

  5. Hi Joyful, I love pictures of trees and pictures of sky, and especially, pictures that combine them. Very nice work here! Now that I've seen your pics I can tell you that our trees here in Seattle are on just about the same degree of bloom ... I will have to get some photos posted soon. With the amount of rain we've had in the Northwest (including Vancouver) I am expecting a truly beautiful spring and a very green start to our summer. I am sorry to hear that you were under the weather. We all miss you when you're not posting so it's good that you are on the mend and feeling better. Have a great weekend ahead!
