I love June!

And I love the beautiful blue skies we have here in Florida!

Every afternoon we have big clouds billow up and sometimes we even have a little shower.

Peek out my kitchen window.

June here so far is shaping up to be rather chilly. Cloudy and cool and windy today. Love the billowing clouds. Here they are the precursor to a thunderstorm.

I really enjoy Florida skies in the summer. Especially after an afternoon shower. The sunsets are gorgeous then.

Your pictures are very pretty.

Gorgeous day in New York, too. "What is so rare as a day in June? Then, if ever, come perfect days." Wishing you a perfect day!

I love pure white clouds against a deep blue sky, no storms in sight. Have a great week my friend xx

What white and fluffy clouds these are, Diane. I don't know if I mentioned or not, but I have a thing for the clouds, so you can imagine what a delightful post this was for me. Sometimes when I look at the clouds, I try to see faces in them......and most of the time, I do. hehehe

What a beautiful view outside your window.

love,

Beautiful blue skies, they do make one happy. I like June because the peonies bloom, and they're my favourite flower in the garden.
See you at Donna's for stormy weather.

Hello Diane

Your photos are fabulous and I love the clouds in summertime in Florida. I have almost crashed my car by cloud gazing.

Beautiful sky and clouds. My 16 year old grandson is heading to Flordia, West Palm Beach to visit with hid Dad on Subday. Hope he has some beautiful weather while he is there. Here's looking to a new week ahead.

Vee said...

Those clouds are stunning! Do you lie on your back and watch them float by? That was one of my favorite childhood things to do.

LindyLou Mac said...

Lovely photos, we have been having sunshine and heavy showers here in Wales as well! I am hoping to take part in the personal photo challenge if I can get organised.

BeachGypsy said...

thank you for inviting me to the "fence party". !! I had no idea these things existed!---the parties and the photo challenges, etc! I am just trying to learn about them and how to take part. It is FUN!!

Diane Writes said...

Can I just invite myself to your home, namemate? I badly need such relaxing greenery and very quiet environment. Everything looks perfect for me. I just need a great read in your home with the perfect view.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

Have a great week :)

Mother Nature sure knows how to put on a beautiful show!

sanda said...

Lovely pictures. Florida clouds are definitely different from the ones where I live. The Stormy Weather photos should be great.

Montanagirl said...

Not sure how I missed this post! Such beautiful skies - great job!!

Carla from The River said...

Love your cloud photos. My son Sam loves to look at the clouds too. He talks about them often. ;-)

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Florida does have some awesome clouds! I remember that from our visit there years ago. Beautiful captures!

Deb~Paxton Valley Folk Art said...

Beautiful cloud photos, I do love a good storm!

Marie said...

Really gorgeous skies! Our rainclouds haven't started forming yet...soon we will have daily rains as well.

Donna said...

Oh wow! Thank you so much for giving the photo challenge a plug! I hope that participants are happily discovering that you can take some interesting photos even when you don't have blue skies and sunshine. Love these cloud photos!

NanaDiana said...

You know, Diane, I think Florida has some of the most beautiful cloud formations I have ever seen in my life. When we lived on the coast there it would cloud up and rain like crazy at the same time everyday during rainy season. I loved it...and afterwards the sun would come out and everything would look green and lush.

Those are wonderful photos, Diane! xo Diana

Sam I Am...... said...

I love clouds and your pictures are gorgeous. Where are the cats you made? If I run across that book I'll copy the instructs and send to you now that I have ink in my printer again! LOL!

Susan Clayton said...

Wonderful cloud pictures!

Nancy said...

Wow! Gorgeous photos, Diane. My artist husband would love those clouds. They are the kind he likes to put in his paintings. :) ~ Nancy

We were in Grand Island last week - it's between Eustis and Leesburg.
We both also commented on the beautiful clouds.
