Our 80 degree weather with sunshine vanished. We had one day and night of rain and cool temps — back into the 50s. Then yesterday was a cloudy cool day. But I enjoyed the beauty of the clouds and will share them with you. Most often our days are filled with bright blue skies.
I’ve decided cloudy days are beautiful and they add a nice contrast to our regular sunshine. I want it to warm up though so I can jump back into the pool and swim laps.
Do you like sunny or cloudy days more? Why? Do you think a sunny day makes you feel more hopeful or happier?
Sunny skies are wonderful, but the clouds do temper the heat and I like that. It’s interesting to look at the pictures you post of your area. It makes me stop for a moment every time. The skies are the same no matter what but then I look down and there is no green grass and no pine trees!
It’s so different than Western WA where I grew up!
It would take me quite a while to get used to cactus in the front yard.
The woodpeckers burrow into the saguaros and make nests. We have a family of woodpeckers living in our yard.
We’ve had a couple of cloudy days recently too. Clouds make the sky more interesting.
You’re right, it’s more interesting. Although I don’t like the cold we’re having now.
I don’t know about the weather where you are but here we don’t want the summer to arrive too soon as it stays a long time 😂
Sunny days are my favorite, but in the summer I do appreciate a cloudy day once in a while.
We have sun the majority of the days. So cloudy days are “weather” to us.
Ahh. That sounds lovely.
I took a picture similar to your first one last week but it was the sunset not the sunrise. We had rain that day. Not sure why sunny days seem happier than cloudy days. Maybe because you can be more open while cloudy days tend to be colder so you’re bundled up? Great photos! The sky is so expressive.
I wake up more hopeful on a bright sunny day. Although I like a rainy day when I get to bundle up like you say and stay inside.
Sunny day totally makes me feel better. However, when it’s really hot out I’m ok with cloudy…
I think sunny days uplift my mood, too. Growing up in the PNW, we’d celebrate and take a day off in college on the first sunny day in Spring.
I love all the four seasons and the weather that comes with them..although it is easier to complain on a cloudy day :)..do you need to water the cacti?
There’s a sprinkler system that drips on the plants. I’m not sure if the cacti get water or not! Good question.
Clouds here in Florida procreate at an enormously fast rate. If you are on the beach and see a small one, time to pack up and go home, because you are about 15 minutes away from a “Noah’s Ark” moment.
Wow. That does sound exciting though.
You misspelled ” exciting”, it is spelled “t-e-r-r-i-f-y-i-n-g” when the roads flood so fast your car becomes a catamaran.
I’m a big fan of clouds. Bright blue skies are nice but clouds add character.
That’s a good way of putting it. 🙂
