More Sunset Clouds

I should just call my blog "Pewaukee Clouds" because we've had so many unusual and colorful clouds illuminated by our sunsets lately. These two photos were snapped with my cell phone out of the side window of our car (while my husband was driving!) on the way home from a local restaurant.  Almost looks like an explosion of fire in the distance.

Billowing Clouds

While driving home from work the other day, there were white clouds billowing up in the distance.  Behind me the sky was threatening to storm, and you could see the contrast reflected in the glass towers ahead.

Clematis Bloom

I've been playing around with "Instagram" features recently and liked how this one turned out.  It's a clematis flower bloom from our patio.  The vine is doing quite nicely this year. Happy Summer!

SkyWatch Friday: Sundown Road

Sorry - I meant to post this yesterday (Friday!) - but finally got a chance to it today.  This was view was taken at sunset from the Ryan St. overpass, looking west over Highway 16 in Pewaukee.

June Theme Day -The Beauty of Decay: Shrek!

Life and beauty spring from the depths of decay.  An old dead tree stump is the host to these budding shelf mushrooms.  They remind me of the ogre Shrek, with his two little horn-like ears on the top of his head!

No Soup for You!

Our local Sendik's grocery store is selling the soup made famous by the original "soup nazi" who was mocked in the Seinfeld series. I haven't tried it yet (they are rather pricey), but there are several varieties and they all sound pretty good.
