Blue Skies

“Blue Skies”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana

It has been a La Nina winter.

Here in the South, that means warmer temperatures and dry conditions. So far, we have had consistently chilly/cold weather with little to no rain. Even though we have not had the moisture, we have had the clouds dominate every time a cold front comes through. Days of grey skies.

After even a few days with little or no sunshine, blue skies are a welcome sight, and they finally have shown up.



Blue skies means sunshine for plants to grow and bloom, warmer temperatures for working out in the garden, and bright light which always lifts the spirits.

Looking forward to more blue skies in 2012.

    Glad to see the sky has turned blue for you. Over here, I’m a little sick of the endless clear blue skies. It’s approaching the middle of our wet season and there’s not a grey cloud to be seen. I wouldn’t mind seeing some grey up there. We need some rain after a long dry season.

      Sounds like our past summer. I don’t think I have ever seen such a dry summer on top of a dry spring. Hope you get some rain soon.

    I’m with you, I’m looking for more blue skies in 2012. 2011 had too many gray ones.
