This has absolutely nothing to do with gardening – I just liked the way the kites seemed to be flying so companionably together. It was taken last week on one of the hottest days ever recorded in Seattle, around sunset at Golden Gardens beach, which was packed with folks in search of the slightest cool breeze.

Today is 7/8/09 by the UK/European (and other? just not US) reckoning. If you happen to read this before noonish, you can try to remind yourself to note the time at 12:34:56 (7.8.09) for some mild numeric amusement. If you want to take a photo at that moment and post it on your blog, VegPlotting, one of my UK garden blog cronies, is curious about what people are up to at that exact moment in time, worldwide. You can leave her a comment here and she’ll link to your post.

I took this from the ferry that runs between Vashon Island in Puget Sound and Seattle, WA. It looked like the sky had sprung a leak and the sun was shooting through. Since it was taking place over the water and the backlit Olympic Mountain range, it made for an enchanting ride home.

In the sky over Seattle, a clash of the titans, tree vs. clouds:

Tree vs. clouds

And the winner is… clouds!

I just can’t seem to resist putting a tree in my sky shots. I know there are plenty of great sky views with no trees in them, but I seem not to look up unless I’m examining branches, a canopy, leaves, twig-borne flower petals, or other arborific views.

Seattle Sky through trees, 3/17/09

Wispy clouds seen from below a giant monkey puzzle tree in Seattle, WA, USA.

My first one was a sky-through-trees pic too. Hm, a theme or just a lame coincidence? To see what the sky has been doing around the world this week, visit the Skywatch Friday site.

Happy Friday (and first day of spring for some of us)!
