I LOVE A CLOUDY DAY....


Time again to link up with SUSAN at OUTDOOR WEDNESDAY..

This day was getting more cloudy by the second...
but the weatherperson said NO RAIN IN THE FORECAST...
*
...hoping.... hoping for rain...
I love rain...I love almost any kind of adverse weather..not tornadoes, tho.
All those beautiful, dark clouds...and NO RAIN !
but....inside I have flowers blooming..
that are supposed to be "resting" up for spring and summer...
hmmm...
*
My large southern windows act much like a greenhouse, I think.....
**
Maybe we will get the rains......next time.

Lovely photos you've taken of the cloudy day, BJness! That weather vane is delightful! I love it! Now those flowers didn't rest at all, did they? What a treat!
Thanks for popping in!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

What a beautiful blog you have! I love the photography, the mosaics, well everything, but most of all I like how you said "what's mine is yours" and people are welcome to copy! How generous! I haven't seen that anywhere on blogs!! Very nice!

Rain is my favorite weather! Everyone has been complaining about these storms we've been having in Southern California this week, but I'm loving it!

I messed up my post. I said that your photo's were just beautiful.

I said that Yellow Rose Arbor was right when she said that it was very generous of you to post that anyone was welcome to take anything from your blog. Now that is sweet. I have see that for a long time and always meant to say something to you about how nice that was.
Those pictures look totally professional to me! You did a great job. I seriously covet your camera!
Thank you for the sweet comment on my post of yesterday. :) I loved it.

I'll send some of our rain your way, we are swimming up here! Those weather veins are fun, very pretty photos!

Kathleen Grace said...

I love rainstorms, especially thunder and lightning, bur all we have right now is snow and cold. I can't wait for spring rain to tell me winter is over. Your geranium is so beautiful!

Beautiful shots of such moody weather! I love the weather vanes. And the cloud photo is wonderful. How nice to have that lovely flower blooming on such a gray day. Have a wonderful week. Kathy

Beautiful pictures of the sky and the flowers! You know I love sky pics:) Have a blessed day and I would love to send you some of our rain. We have had too much up here!

Love that you love cloudy weather and rain! It's great to see the beauty in all of nature! (I can only appreciate the rainy cloudy days once in a while, though!) :o)

Jo said...

Me too, I love when it rains but I sure love it when that beautiful big ole sun shines too.Great pics, and what a green thumb you have!

Treasia Stepp said...

Beautiful pictures you've taken. Not to fond of rain here but I'm one of those weird people that love the thrill of the tornadoes. LOL. The adrenaline gets to pumping high. I guess I am an adrenaline junkie.

Stacey said...

I bet you do wish for rain out West. We are supposed to be getting a serious snow and ice storm tonight and tomorrow. Are you? Just got back from filling up the gas tank and stocking up on groceries.

Sage said...

When I arrive at your place, I have to stop and admire that Header! Lovelypictures!
So nice for you to have pink flowers blooming in January.
Enjoy!

I think the Weather Person sometimes do a lot of guessing. We get a lot of rainstorms here in the Midwest. I love them, it really shows the power of the Almighty and how small we are. We just finished a big sunroom on the south of our home. Hopefully mine will be a greenhouse too.

Oh, I love looking at dark, bubbling clouds, and love the rain even more. Especially if it comes with wind, thunder and lightning!

Wow, your geraniums think it's spring!

Justine :o )

BJ...my dearest how have you been? I've missed you terribly! I'll be back to blogging in March but I'll be dropping by to visit all my friends.

Deanna :D

Gray skies here in Chicagoland too. I adore how you put a larger photo in the middle of the collage. Neat idea!

I love storms. Thunder and lightning. Blustery winds at the beach. Crashing waves. I love it all.
