Gaze up at the sky!

Did you ever lay in the grass as a child looking up at the summer sky? Did you find shapes and figures in the clouds? The sky lately has been so pretty here in Holland that it brings back those feelings of being a child and gazing up into that summer sky. Clouds are often overlooked in our busy days and they are so beautiful. Take a few minutes today to go outside and look up at the clouds. This is a photo I took of the clouds as we were out enjoying nature on Sunday.

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time. ~John Lubbock

What a beautiful photo! I do so love the clouds, and your quote to go with the photo is wonderful! :o)
Do you like the moon too? I love it and am always take pictures of the day moon and night moon. :o) I'm sure you must like them too, as I feel we have several things in common, Heidi!
Blessings,
Janice

I still like to watch to clouds and make pictures out of them. The quote you chose is so appropriate! ♥
