Spring Skies

It's been a lovely few days in my little world. We have had mild temperatures and sunshine. While out yesterday mailing a birthday card to my brother I took the long way home and as I rounded a familiar curve along the ridge of the mountain I saw this tall brown grass that made a nice contrast to the lovely blue sky overhead. Usually there are horses in the field but there were none on this day. 
  
The evening of our seventy degree day Monday the sky was gorgeous. I had been in the kitchen and as I started to other parts of the house I could see a soft pink glow coming through the windows and falling on the curtains. Grabbed the camera and went outside. The best part of sunsets doesn't last long. The colors were brilliant. I can't ask for better than to stand in my front yard and see this spectacular view.

The colors became more subdued as the sun sank. (Believe it or not my garden fence is barely visible in the lower left of this photo. )

Your skies look like Kansas skies--lots of "pink" lately. I looked again at your "robin" that is not a robin at all. Still hope Spring is near. Mickie ;)

Beautiful sunset! It is amazing how quickly the come on and then are just gone. I love to be out at the strip pits for them...sometimes the sky will look just drab and then, all of a sudden there is so much beauty it takes your breath away.
