Sky Watch Friday #42

Sky Watch Friday is doing really well. Please check out the site and link in if you wish to participate. There were over 380 people last week with beautiful Sky photos. You can link in from my side bar or at the start of this post.

Just last week we had snow but a week in Ohio can cause some big changes. The trees are starting to flower and Spring beauty abounds with this red blossom tree.
This white blossom shows it beauty in the sky. You can see some of the other trees are yet to bud.
There are some great skies if you go and visit.

I hope we are done with snow...beautiful flowering trees...and a beautiful sky ...

Tarolino said...

What a wonderful combination. Spring is just a marvellous time. The sky even looks prettier when being accompanied by such blooms. They look like Lilac trees but you call them white blossom.

Oz Girl said...

Wow, the trees are really beautiful. I always loved the flowering trees this time of year in Ohio. Looks like you guys are getting a pretty good soaking today! ;-) We got almost 3" of rain on Saturday; the horse pens are STILL mucky!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Great photographs. I guess that we don't have cherry blosssoms here in OK. I don't know why not. Our loss.

Kathy said...

Fluffy clouds always make a nice back drop. I think most of our flowering trees have all gotten their leaves on them now here. Hope you have a great Friday. =)

Great SWF photos and the contrasts are lovely. I left Ontario today having seen my first leafed trees in Toronto and am now on Haida Gwaii where it is always green! Thank you for sharing and have a great weekend.

I was amazed at how much the trees had flowered just over the course of 24 hours from Sat. to Sunday last weekend. Your pictures of the blossoms against our beautiful spring sky are wonderful!

Twisted Fencepost said...

Funny how a a few miles and a couple of states make a difference in when the seasons change. Here, most everything is leaved out.

Carver said...

Wonderful signs of spring against the sky.

Beautiful pictures, Tom. It looks as if spring has arrived in Ohio.

I do like blossoms against the sky, especially a crisp clear sky like this.
