Kate’s Friday Fun: Yard Art

This poor dog finally rusted away

Some yard art says a bit about the occupants maybe…..

Greeted by a happy smile

The sky song for Hammad’s Weekend Sky #11

The rains have certainly arrived. It has been so tropical. Hot steamy days and them torrential rain in the late afternoon. Some days it has rained all day. I was hoping for a nice cloudy photo this morning as earlier it was blue skies. I couldn’t pick which one so here is two views this morning

What did you prefer? More trees or more sky? I still can’t make up my mind.
