Sky Watch Friday


'February Gold' cyclamineus daffodils along the edge of the yard looking northeast across the firebreak on Wednesday. This is a squirrel's eye view. I lay prone to take the photo.

It rained all day today and the satellite was out for most of the day.

Dottie said...

Ok.. it's sky watch, but I can't help but look at the pretty daffodils! No sign of those pretty flowers around here...too much snow!

Andrée said...

I was going to say "lucky you" for having flowers so early. But a firebreak? That sounds dangerous, ominous, scary. I hope all is alright. My Sky Watch is here. Thank you.

These are wonderful. I wonder what it's like to be a small animal and to look up and see countless suns!

You are so lucky to have some beautiful color in your yard so early we will be lucky to see anything for at least another month or more

Hi,
A beautiful shot! I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets into unusual positions to take a photo. I once lay on my back in our local woods to photograph the sun through the branches of the trees.A chap walking past gave me a most peculiar look!

Thank you for visiting....your picture makes me long for spring even more. we are still under 6 feet of snow. I am not a gardener.....black thumb of death have I....but I did put some bulbs down last fall. should be interesting to see if I failed at even that task! May i link your blog? rosemary

I appreciate your squirrels eye view. It is fun to try photos from odd angles and can produce some very interesting results. :)

RuneE said...

That's the way to do it! Loved it!

Dirty Knees said...

The squirrels in your neighbourhood are mighty lucky to have such a lovely view!

Mike said...

I love them. We have lots here now but they have been VERY early this year.

Beautiful pic, Jean. Lying down to take pics of plants/flowers can sometimes be the only way to get up close and capture their full beauty without having to zoom.
