Sunrise

Now and then I am blessed to catch a sunrise. This is one from a few days ago. 






We continue to have odd weather. It hailed again.This is the 2nd time in a week.


The hail looked like snow. I couldn't believe it but speaking to a cousin of mine just yesterday I learned it was snowing where she lives. It is rather late in the season for that. While we were talking on the phone I saw one reporter from her city (Edmonton) bringing the news of their recent provincial elections. The snow was falling and blowing wildly about him. Brrr.


The hail did a bit of damage to my garden plants.  I didn't realize that until I uploaded these (and other photos) and saw the damaged  leaves.
 I think they will be hardy enough to get beyond it.



I apologize to my readers if you haven't seen me much this week. I'm recovering from a nasty bout of food poisoning. I seem to be on the mend.

How was your week? 

Joining in with Skywatch Friday this week.
Have a look there for more awesome skies from all over the world.

  1. Sorry to hear about the food poisoning--that does not sound fun! Unusual weather seems to be getting so common it could become the norm. Glad your plants were not too damaged by the hail. Your captures of the sunrise are beautiful!

  3. Very pretty sunset! A friend just posted pictures of Colorado Springs. They had a huge hail storm today, that also accumulated and looked like snow. They got about 2 inches. Crazy!
    I love your photo of the raindrops on the hosta.

    1. Thank you for your kind words, Anne. Those are actually birds in a few of the sunrise photos. I like to capture birds in the morning when I can. They seem to be more plentiful before all the humans come out :-)

  6. Our weather is going straight to summer. I can remember the hostas taking quite a beating from a late spring freeze and having a wonderful summer and fall in spite of it.

  26. Hi Joyful, This afternoon I'm catching up on my favorite blogs and just found your fine sunrise photos in this post and the Baboons in Kenya (May 8). I like all the photos! You sure have a nice view out to the eastern ridge of mountains, for catching the nice sunrise. Now, I am so sorry to hear about the food poisoning! Dang, I've had that a couple times over the years ... the last time was many years ago but I remember how bad the pain was. Bless your heart! Hope you are fully back to normal soon if not already! Re previous posts: I went back and looked again at your post of May 3rd to review plans for Baby Fidelis. I had wrongly thought the party was last weekend but see it is actually happening today ... sure hope they got the funds they needed! Lastly, your Baboon photos are fascinating ... I'll bet they are an unusual appearance on Eileen's meme. Thanks for sharing all ... take good care and be well! :-)
