WISPS

That's what I saw in my sky last night.

Wisps.

Of clouds.

Back down here on terra firma, I received a couple of pictures by email from the BRD.


They show some spectacular blooms on a flowering cactus.

It's amazing that a plant this prickly could produce such beautiful blossoms.


How's your imagination?

Is that a face peeking out from behind that center flower?

If so, what does it mean?

MY Arizona Diamondbacks completed a three-game sweep of the Colorado Rockies this afternoon.


That follows a sweep of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Which followed a sweep of the San Francisco Giants.

The Diamondbacks have now won 10 games in a row for the first time since 2003.

The numbers keep rising from that tragic flood in Texas and Louisiana.

It's looking more and more like we may get involved in another war with North Korea.

Sometimes it's just better to watch the wisps of cloud in the sky.

Yes - the sky is so soothing - even when it's stormy. That lovely cactus reminds me that I want to be sure to get one for our yard next year - a lot of yards had some with yellow blooms & I thought they were fabulous!

That is a long, drawn out halloween pumpkin face. :)

Congrats on the D-backs! Pretty impressive!

Clouds it is! A much better weekend subject to concentrate on.

You've got me thinking about wisps, blooms and sweeps which could mostly be wiped out with floods and war -- using my imagination -- or is that closer to reality? I'll just go back to gazing at the clouds -- maybe there will be some faces there.

I'd much rather watch wisps of clouds in the sky than the evening news.
