I Spy Blue Skies

blue skies of spring

blue skies of spring

blue skies of spring

blue skies of spring

blue skies of spring

blue skies of spring

blue skies of spring

A light exists in spring
Not present on the year
At any other period-
When March is scarcely here
A color stands abroad
On solitary fields
That science cannot overtake
But human nature feels.
~Emily Dickinson

I love the beautiful blooms of spring, but I also love the gorgeous blue skies that show up when spring arrives...somehow they're cleaner, purer, and more sun-kissed than any of the skies of winter. Today I'm sharing some of the blue sky photos I've captured in the last week or two, and I'm also linking up to Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday. For the final image above, I used her "Sybil" texture at Color Burn/92%.

Has spring finally arrived where you are? Don't forget to look up and take in the beautiful, blue sky! Thanks so much for stopping by.

    Still gloomy most of the days here in Scotland, but I am hopeful. Or deluded, LOL!
