Amazing Nature

I awoke to this stunning sunrise on Wednesday morning.  I grabbed my camera and rushed out on to the porch to capture the clouds before they dispersed.  The sky looked as though it was on fire and the skeletal  trees could make one think that the leaves had been burnt away.  The scene set before me was as though Monet had painted the sky just for me that morning.  Nature and its beauty continues to lift and inspire me each day.

I am also inspired and lifted by the amount of people that want to be part of my Bloggers Beads Necklace (see previous post). Thank you to those of you that have sent beads to me so far and for all of the thought you have put into choosing them for me.  Don't worry if you haven't sent beads to me yet.  There is still time.  I am going to leave this open for about a month to give my friends from overseas time to send them to me.  Don't forget that I will draw a name from all the participants and send the winner something I have made.

It has just gone 3.30 in the afternoon.  A watery sun is shining.  Birds are singing.  Spring IS on its way.

Stunning sky, I like the lamp too. Spring is coming but don't forget that we haven't really had winter yet, this morning was a timely reminder with the frost. Good to know that you are getting beads for all over.
