MORE pictures? Why YES!

It’s been a great weekend for pictures! This morning a frost came up all of a sudden, just a little one that rimed the edges of fallen leaves and gilded the edge of sunrise.IMG_8080.JPGIMG_8085.JPGIMG_8085.JPGIMG_8083.JPGIMG_8081.JPG

Time for Sky

I’ve not posted here in ages…and I’ve had SO many new sky pictures thanks to the new phone. (HOW did we ever get along without those insidious buggers?!) I’m toooo lazy to look up when each picture was taken, but they were all local to central Massachusetts over the last several months.

See the tiny little sunbow there in the middle of the sky? It was so wicked awesome!

If I was a meteorologist, I could tell you the name of these clouds. I call them cotton puffs, and they were just starting to pink up at sunset…a really neat sky.

Just after the leaves fell, we had a rash of pink-washed sunsets. The clouds turned purple-gray and the sky simply glowed with the pearly light.IMG_7926.JPG

This was the November 2016 “Supermoon”, the moon passing at it’s closest perihelion to earth–won’t happen again for another 18 years.IMG_7920.JPG

A little bit of virga in the upper  foreground and stunning striated clouds below as I sat in traffic on my way to work. It’s not always bad to be forced to sit and be still. IMG_7902.JPG

Just a pretty evening…IMG_7893.JPG

Awesome sky (again, sitting in traffic) on 11/11/16. IMG_7577.JPG

One of the most gorgeous colored sunsets we’ve seen in a while.IMG_7813.JPG

My favorite Japanese Maple in full Autumn color and the intense blue sky behind makes for a really incredible fall vignette.IMG_7666.JPGAnother ‘capture’ of the amazing 11/11/16 sunset on my way home from Maine.IMG_7662.JPG

And then it was over, the sun sinking fast in the west, and the dark still glowed for a while afterwards.

for today:

The snow falls gently

 painting the colored pansies.

Purple turns to white.

and for yesterday:

Bitter north wind blows

mittens forgotten at home–

April, where is Spring?

Haiku #5

Dank raw day outside

mom and kids huddle in coats

tulips break the soil

Sun peeking through clouds

delightfully wrong forecast.

Crocus yearn upwards.

Springtime rite commenced.
