Really tempting to just sit and stare when nature throws a scene like this all over the morning horizon.

Click the link for Sky Watch Friday to see what bloggers from all over the world have found in their sky to share with us this week.
You know I am fascinated by colours and have to share the news that Tattered Angels has a competition (random draw) guessing the names of their colours “Nickname of a large city and I have many songs written about me” how easy is that one?  Guaranteed good fun click the link and pick your colours.
