Haiku Sky Watch - December Inspirations


ALMOST


Rain showers Monday
followed by wind & sunshine...
debris on the ground

lovely skies above
... today more much needed rain
gently falling down



snow-covered mountains
in the distance behind more
palm trees near the beach

Thought for Today
"Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather." John Ruskin

Oh my these are gorgous shots especially after all that rain. I love Palm trees. I like seeing pictures from your part of the world.
PS It's 14ยบ here today and snowing!
We got 8" last night. More to come.
Have a great day.

The palm trees look so sturdy, yet apparently are as vulnerable as everything else. Great shots and words of wisdom.

We too are loving the much needed rain. We get so little as you do. What a joy to see it coming down.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

Your photos are very beautiful.

Rebecca said...

Holy cow, are those grapefruits? Amazing the tree can hold them all.

Akelamalu said...

Lovely words to go with the great pictures. :)

Carly said...

You are so lucky to have the great weather and palm trees, but still have snow covered mountains in the background.

That's a really COOOOOL video at the top - I've gotta send that to my mom, she'll love it.

The land of beautiful skies! :)

Dimple said...

I like your thought for today especially; that's the attitude I need when it's snowing and I have to drive 10 miles to town.

Your photos and words as always are inspirational (on this and all of your blogs). I have read that John Ruskin quote before and try to take it to heart (about the different kinds of good weather). But sometimes it is hard!

Sunshine, rain and snow...what more can I ask for?

Beautiful ruminating moments to contemplate with gratefulness. :)

Jeanne Selep said...

Beautiful as usual. I also love your morning glory shot from earlier.

there are morning glories in Borneo and New Zealand, but I have not seen such lovely flowers bunched together like your photo.
