leaves of spring



































most trees around here have their leaves out by now which is great, unless you're allergic. yesterday I was walking my dog on main street and someone driving by in their car sneezed so loud you could hear it from the sidewalk.
if you'd like to see more skies from all around the world or if you'd like to add your own sky, please visit the skywatch friday meme, thanks to klaus and his team, sandy, wren, fishing guy, and sylvia.

Wonderful photo. Lots of sneezes here also, along with the rain and hail.

Sneezes travel at 60mph, so be careful to turn your head as soon as your hear one!

Stunning photo. Isn't spring fun?

Linda said...

The sun is coaxing all those leaves out - you can just see them growing day by day.

That must have been a loud sneeze.
