Through the kitchen window

Today the weather has been typical “August Holiday Weather”. Clouds varying from light, white, whispy feathers to deep dark threatening, almost anvil topped, storm clouds.  All blown across the sky by a moderate western wind and in between odd patches of blue and streaming sunshine.

One such patch of sun caught my eye as it lit  up the garden rosemary and shone through the vine leaves that hang over the kitchen window.

About rosemary. Did you know that it will only grow in a garden where a woman wears the trousers? I keep trying to kill it off! It currently stands almost as tall as me. Oh well, i early spring it provides nectar for the few bees that we still have.

    New Mexico’s best feature are the blue skies with white fluffy clouds. ( In the “olden days” skies were shockingly bright blue.) Every time you see the clouds you are sure they are more beautiful than any other time.

    Today however, late afternoon, the sky is grey & we’ve had lightening strikes & thunder close together!

    Love your pic & description.

    Nice catch! I love the play of light on shrubs and trees at different times of the day.

    Nice picture. All I get to see from the kitchen window is the fence that separates us from the neighbors!

    Oh, Magpie, now I have something to cry about! What a beautiful view – it’s perfect.

    Miss my garden so much.
