View From the Patio

This is what I woke up to this morning. I ran outside to snap a photo before the pinks and blues faded into a sunny almost spring day.

See you later in the day, if you click on the photos they enlarge.



  1. Very nice sunrise pictures! Those cold mornings produce some good ones!

  2. Dave,

    It was so lovely I didn't notice the cold on my bare feet!


  3. i have been admiring these last few day of sunrises. so glad you noticed too! it was freezing this morning though! had to watch from inside the house.

  4. Tina,

    I didn't notice but later when I went outside fully dressed I wondered if the temperature had dropped. I was so distracted by the beauty. Glad you saw it too.


  5. Gail ... great pictures !
    I love sunrises .. the colour of the sky is amazing .. and I didn't notice the cold when I was taking pictures those mornings either .. we are just so in love with how the sky looks !
    I even stepped barefoot in the snow to grab Sophie when she put her paws on the deck .. now that is a little crazy .. haha

  6. Joy,

    I never let my cat outside, too many coyotes and a busy street...so I would probably run barefoot in the snow, too.

    I do love the sky.


  7. Gorgeous! It's a shame, but I'm usulayy so busy running around getting the kids ready for school I forget to stop and take the time to notice the beauty in nature.

  8. cinj,

    We are empty nesters and have the time again. Though, I miss having my son around.

    I don't want to give you any bromides about how you will have time in the future.... but I want to acknowledge that parenting takes a lot of sacrifice.

    Your kids are lucky you are so involved in their lives.
