SkyWatch Friday

For this week's SkyWatch Friday I am sharing three photos I took while driving back through my neighborhood. I love looking at all the fall colors. This tree has been begging to be photographed on each pass. Today was the day to park my car and my first two photos are of the same tree.

This house is a couple of streets up from mine. There is a real nice family in this house. I don't know them but when the weather is good I often see mom and dad outside with their children. I'm very happy that the skies were again a brilliant blue with lovely clouds so that I could share them today. Ever since I took these photos only a few days ago, it's been rather cloudy and a lot colder, and it's now pouring down with rain, but then after all it is November.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Thank you Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy and Sylvia for hosting SkyWatch Friday.

You're right Denise, that tree has been begging to be photographed and I'm glad you finally gave in. So pretty with the fall colors and the green in the center. Nice neighborhood you live in there.

It's so nice to see the autumn colours. They are mostly gone from here now.

It's nice to see a couple pictures of your neighborhood. It rained most of the day today; it was chilly too. The *S* word is in our forecast for the weekend.

It is that time of year when we must keep the camera handy. The good shots are fleeting as the weather keeps changing.

I love the tree! =)

Strawberry Jam Anne said...

I agree Denise - such a beautiful tree deserves to be photographed. Perfect shape and glorious autumn colours against the pretty blue skies. Hope you have a lovely weekend. A x

Jean said...

Nice eye! The tree is very lovely.

ladyfi said...

What a marvellous tree! Superb against the blue sky.

Kay said...

I agree! That is a gorgeous tree. The house has such a (almost) typical American house look. All it needs is a white picket fence. Very beautiful!

What a gorgeous sky and a lovely neighbourhood.

Great Fall photographs. This is the season for taking pictures.

diane said...

You'll have to keep looking at this post to see the blue skies when you only have grey skies. It is fun seeing your neighbourhood.

Mary said...

Looks like a great neighborhood. That tree was worth stopping to photograph. Send that rain our way! Once again we got no more than a drizzle last night.

Patty said...

Have a fantastic week-end. We may see a few snow flakes, but of course nothing will stick. Yesterday we had rain and hail.

Kim, USA said...

Hi Denise, is the last photo your house? Love it! Happy weekend!

I would say, that is a perfect tree,the shape and the colour are beautiful.
If you do not mind me asking,what is the name of the foliage in your header picture ?? it is lovely,I wonder if it it would grow here,or is it only a fair weather shrub.?

The Fall colors and those trees are so special. Like you I am constantly looking at all the gorgeous Autumn colors.
