SWF>>>Backyard Skies

I am linking my post up with  Skywatch Friday  and NF Winged







One of my Goldfinches looking up at the sky



I love see the pink an blue sky and our trees are towering above our roof.


These are actually skies from two nights ago. Lately we are having mostly clear skies, so I can not really complain. I do enjoy watching the sky.
