I Admit it....I'm Cloudaholic!

Yes, I love clouds and I make a point to notice them everyday. They never disappoint me in their beauty and ability to morph into wonderful shapes and colors.
I love when they tower over my home and dare anyone to mess with me.
I love when they demand to be noticed. Really....who could ignore  clouds like these?
I love when they resemble a bag of cottonballs that someone tossed into the sky.
I love when you see animals in their formations. Anyone see a turkey or an elephant?
I love when they are generous enough to let the sun peek through to give us encouragement for a bright and better day.
I love when they provide the perfect backdrop for a cool photo. Although I doubt the captain was happy about flying into this approaching storm.
I love how clouds know when to step back and let the birds get to where they are going.
I love when my clouds look as if someone put a torch to them.
I love how the blanket my hills.
Most of all I love how they add so much softness and wonder to my life.
Take time today to look to the sky, mine is filled with rain clouds today..but it's needed so it's all good!
So much is happening in this fast paced and hectic world. We need to stop once in a while and look around at the beauty of this planet and let it replenish our faith in life.
Until next time...be kind and stay creative.

Gorgeous clouds and great pictures. I too love clouds. I sit in my yard swing and watch them move and see what all I can see in them. Clouds are amazing. Loved this post and the pictures. Hugs

God Bless America! Your Clouds are wonderful, each and every one. Of course, who does not love to look at the clouds. I have always loved watching them float by while lying on the grass. Your rolling hills are gorgeous too. Are those your fences?...speechless
BlessYa

I love them too. I remember warm sunny summer days when I was little, laying on the ground and staring at the clouds, seeing shapes and animals and all sorts of things in them. When I see shafts of sunlight coming down out of the clouds I always think of God:>)

What stunning photos Janet. Every one of them different.
Just think, some countries hardly ever see a cloud. How boring. Here in Scotland we see PLENTY.

Those pics are so pretty! I took a picture once when the clouds parted to form a heart of blue sky in the middle - you would have loved it :)

Janet - the clouds are absolutely gorgeous. Nature is a wonderful thing.

I've been gone but wanted to let you know that I loved the post on the rummage sale. I must not have a discerning eye, because the 'few' times I have gone, I find only junk - I mean really junk. OK, my kids say I'm a snob but I'll try again.

Hugs - Marie
