Hope On The Horizon


After days of leaden skies, fog and a full night and day of rain ....
tonight's sunset indicates there is hope on the horizon for a better day.

The large "puffy" balls in the bare oak trees are mistletoe,
which is there year round, but barely visible once the trees leaf out.






I'm joining Blue Monday with Smiling Sally

  2. Those are lovely shots. My husband was taking sky shots today because he said it was the most beautiful sky he had seen all winter. Yours is, too.

    Happy Blue Monday...

  27. Thank you all for your lovely comments! I can take no credit for the beauty Mother Nature provides and all the credit for the photos should go to my camera! LOL

    Deborah Kay, please feel free to use any of the images. :-)

    CANDACE - You stopped me in my tracks! Thought I must have posted under some ID that I had long ago forgotten! I can count on about three fingers the number of fellow owners of the name "Candace" spelled with 2 a's that I've met in my lifetime!
