The clouds have been wonderful today - fleecy, white against a blue sky through to grey, dark and brooding. And in the mix a cloud took on the shape of a nose-diving aeroplane - at least it looked that way to me.
Clouds and wind = sky patterns.
There was blue sky
Then there came clouds
It rained hard this afternoon as Melbourne’s recent run of warm autumnal days moved towards more normal autumn weather. In the transition there was thunder, hail, loud heavy rainfall. It’s winter woollies time tonight.
It’s truly a fine autumn, blue sky days, fleecy white clouds from time to time, and that balmy stillness as the heat of summer with it’s particular style of energy begins to ease out letting the plants begin to wind down. Soon the leaves of this tree with change colours, and begin to fall as the tree begins to rest and reserve it’s energies over the coming winter in readiness for a spring.
The last of the tomato crop is slowly ripening and proving good eating. The mandarins are rapidly filling out and I’m looking for the first hint of the gorgeous orange skin to show. There is so much blossom on the lime and the lemon and the bees are busy about their work of ensuring those blooms pollinate and become new fruit.
It’s a good time of year to prepare for a winter project to keep creativity awake. I will miss daylight saving time and those extra hours of daylight, but it’s also nice to be in a warm place, making something beautiful - a crochet rug, or some embroidery, or perhaps a short story that I’m happy about.
Meanwhile I rather like sitting out on the deck and imagining images and shapes in those fleecy clouds overhead.
Up up and away with the cloud people today, blown along by the winds, creating wonderful textures and patterns against the gloriously blue skies. Lot cooler up there than it is at ground level today.
The sky has become a map full of cloud islands.
I enjoy gazing up at the clouds and imagining the shapes within - apparently so do many others and here’s six photographs of what others have seen:
