Peek a Blue!

Clouds, fog, wind, rain, sleet, snow...

The weather has been less than inspiring so far this month.
A peek of blue is welcome even for just a few moments.


Streamers blow off the lake
bringing snow showers and flurries in their path...
here they are and there they go.

Snow falls behind the red barn but as I drive closer, it disappears.

Peek a BLUE, I see you...
Please get larger and stay a lot longer!

    First comment this time!Dad and I were really impressed with these "Peek a Blue" pictures. It is something we rarely see. The tropical skies are either a cloudless blue or almost completely black and gray except for the incredible sunsets. These shots are excellent as were your spring birds.
    Our first house (barn) swallows arrived back today - 3 days early. The males come a claim the nest 2 - 3 weeks before the females.

  4. Ruth, I am in total agreement, the weather has been less then favorable so far. The past couple of days have been extremely cold and it's back to layering clothes.
    I do like the peek a blue pictures...makes one wonder what is behind the clouds...I hope it's sunshine and the "peek" gets bigger soon.

  24. We saw the sun all day today. Even though it barely got to 20 degrees, the wind wasn't blowing and it seemed like a really nice day. A warm-up is predicted for the weekend, so I'll be sending some nicer weather your way Ruth!
