SkyWatch Friday

Bits of a greying sky through the branches of a very tall Tulip Poplar planted by George Washington in 1785. Mt. Vernon

To see skies from all over the world, visit SKYLEY

Happy Skywatching!


  1. That is one old tree. Nice to have a date to know how long it has been admired.

  2. What a grand old tree, and such an important part of our nation's history!


    Which sky for you?
    One that is blue?
    Or do you prefer
    A sky that’s demure?

    A sky in grey
    Is soft, they say,
    And not everyone
    Likes the blinding sun.

    Perhaps a sky
    Through which geese fly
    To winter havens
    Away from ravens?

    A rain-swept sky
    That seems to cry?
    O quickly choose one
    Before day is done!

  6. And here I thought Washington only planted cherry trees!

  7. This series keeps getting better and better. I’m loving it. Your shot of the tree is drop dead gorgeous....great capture. Hope you get a kick out of my Sunday Bridges post this week. All I can say is, Buddy scared me to death. Thanks heaven he made it back to me safe and sound! Hope you have a drier Sunday than what we are experiencing here. I need to go out and shoot all the water rushing down Kerrs Creek under our bridge....SPOOKY and VERY LOUD!

  8. Great shot. We love tulip populars.
