Sky Watch #14



Hello, Fellow Sky Watchers.

Before it closed for the season, I made one more visit to Leaming's Run Gardens in Cape May Court House, NJ. Here are just a few of the photos I took, which show you the beautiful sky above us that day. As always, click on the pictures to enlarge.



Sometimes I enjoyed looking up through the trees.



And sometimes I enjoyed a view of the sky reflected in the water.



Everything at Leaming's Run is lovely, reflected in the water.


























And sometimes, the view seen across the lawn, with the sky above, is just as lovely.




Here are some berries, hanging from an arbor.



Please visit the Sky Watch site, and thank our hosts, Tom, Sandy, Klaus, and Imac, and visit some of the others from around the world, who have posted their photographs today.

hi bobbie,

thanks for visiting It Strikes Me Funny. you left a very interesting comment that has me thinking.

your photo with the reflected sky reminded me of an unusual one a friend directed me to today; it's at the very bottom of her blog at:

Gorgeous as always, almost makes me want to head your way. We're both so fortunate to live in such beautiful places, but then we all have access to the same sky, don't we? Enjoy!

Good for you, Bobbie! I love the bridge and the gazebo!

Arija said...

I bet you had a lovely day in that garden and came away with some nice shots as well.

All inviting but especially appealing to me are the ones with reflections. For some reason I always thought reflections had a magical quality about them when I was child, and I still feel that way whenever I see beautiful ones in the water. Its kind of like allowing yourself to be in a make believe world for just a few moments. Happy Skywatch Friday!

Enigma said...

Beautiful....I particularly like the clouds in the trees. It just makes you stop and stare, doesn't it?

Deborah Godin said...

Lovely sky and water photos - wil you visit there in winter, too? Beautiful spot anyway, I love reflections.

fishing guy said...

Bobbie: What a really neat walk through a beautiful place, you captured it so very well. With so many great options it's hard to choose a favorite, nicely done.

lovely sky watch love the reflections !

Jim said...

Hi Bobbie, Leaming's Run Gardens are really pretty. Too bad it has to close in the winter, we just aren't used to those closings down here.
I found a bear laying on a fan for today. You might like it.
Happy SkyWatching!

Jim said...

Sorry, but I went back and you'd been peeking in at my bear on the fan. Thank you for your nice comment.
Happy SkyWatching!

Hey Bobbie-2! Love your photos! I was at the planetarium with my two youngest children today (school holiday). We were looking at a giant model of the earth hanging from the ceiling with "real-time" weather conditions projected on it. It was amazing to look at it and realize that we are all under the same blue sky! And then low and behold here you are showing me your lovely sky...awesome!

Indrani said...

Wonderful shots, all different and beautiful! :)

Bobbie in Hawaii said...

They're all very pretty, but I like the ones with the gazebo and the little footbridge the best.

Your photos are the most eloquent little spots of beauty. They need no words

Tootie said...

I liked all the photos, especially the one with the berries.

nonizamboni said...

Great, peaceful photos, Bobbie--and don't great minds think alike with the reflection photos? :O)
p.s. I like your side bar, you know, 'that one'!

Cap May is very pretty.

Very beautiful! I love sky reflections in water! Happy SkyWatching!

storyteller said...

What a LOVELY place with gorgeous views. I appreciate you sharing and enjoyed all the views … though my favorite was the 3rd today. I’ve shared ‘pink clouds on blue skies’ (and a bit of haiku) at Sacred Ruminations ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Salty said...

Lovely sky shots! I love how you framed the sky with the trees, great job!

Lily Hydrangea said...

your skywatch photos are so pretty Bobbie! I really really love the one with the bridge.
I just read what you wrote about awards in your last post. So true,I feel the same way & I couldn't have said it better.
which also made me notice you put me on your must reads list, which makes me think how fortunate I am to have someone as interesting as you find my blog interesting enough to want to read it every day! What a compliment, Thank you Bobbie.
