A View of Contrasts-Skywatch Friday

We have had a very hot week her in souther Ontario breaking all the records for highs.  We are not complaining but it is unusual to have this hot at this time of the year.   I took this photo this afternoon on my way home from the gym.  I just like the dark green foliage with the blue sky and fluffy white clouds.   More great sky photos can be found here.
 For our American friends I hope that you enjoy your Memorial Day weekend and that is just as spectacular as Victoria Day weekend that Canadian had last weekend.   
Blogger is not putting my pictures where I want them again. Grrrr!

What a gorgeous capture, Valerie! Great composition! I, too, love the dark green colors, the blue sky and lovely clouds! Looks like a perfect summer day! We could use a little of your warm temps!! Spring came very early and then I think it said, Oops, we're too early, and brought back the gray, chilly, wet days we were expecting in February and got flowers instead????? Weird weather year! Have a wonderful weekend!

That's a beautiful sky and it does look great over the dark green foliage.
Thank heavens for air conditioners!
I may be doing a rain dance any day now - care to join me?

The deep, rich green that has exploded this past week, providing shade has been most welcome!
Has been too hot here, hopefully tomorrow we will get a less humid day. Love the shot, stunning.

The transition of the cold to warm weather produces beautiful clouds. These are really pretty!

Enjoy your weekend!

Valerie, this is such a lovely photo and so cool and peaceful looking. I am surprised you have such beautiful contrast and little haze dispite the heat. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend.

Hot and yet very calm and gorgeous.
A beautiful summery picture - May can be so lovely with the greens still fresh and abundant.
A gorgeous landscape of green earth and bluest sky!

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
