Rural Thursday With Watercolor Skies

"Why DID  the chicken cross the road?"
(I couldn't have planned this shot.)  :)
Sitting in the Jeep at the Tractor Supply Store while Hubby ran in to buy some bird seed I noticed the  clouds above the round bale feeders at the other end of the parking lot. The sky was filled with  beautifully fluffy clouds that were lightly shaded with gray - just like a watercolor painting.
Another view without the feeders.
Linking to Rural Thursday and Skywatch.

Really like your chicken shot. Hard to believe that here are still places with free range chickens. They like to pick up grit on the roads.

Hi Carletta, beautiful skies! Cool sighting of the chickens, and what are they doing in the road. Happy Skywatching and have a great weekend!

Love everything about this post...smiling at the wonderful cloudy skies, laughing at the chickens and your caption, and even loving that your husband runs in to the farm/home store while you wait in the car. (I do that too, with either camera or Kindle)
