Laughing and Crying Out Loud with Earth

Happy Flowers in Flower boxes at local Artisan Shop

Sometimes, Earth needs a good laugh,
Sometimes, she starts to cry...

{wisps of rain or snow, seen trailing from clouds, that evaporate before reaching the earth}

{Photos of Virga taken on my way home from work.}

Virga subsides and tears dry.

~ Now turn that little pout around ~


Now, Earth,
you're giggling!
Thank you, Lord,
for this amazing planet we enjoy.
Dear Family and Friends,
~ Have a happy, happy weekend ~

Enjoy it All


Thank you to our Sky Watch Friday hosts:

There's been a lot of crying and pouting here in SW Ohio, but this morning the sun IS shining!!!
Lovely post Maria!

Diana said...

Well I never knew that was called Virga! I do believe I have a photo of it on my last post! I learned something new this morning, thank you Maria. And thank you for the earthly laughter,it is most definitely contagious! Love Di ♥

Oh Maria...these images are amazing. Last night our weather was having one major temper tantrum...our power was even out for awhile. I need some smiles today..our sweet grade ones are going to the zoo today...all the animals will be huddled away...rain boots will be mucky and umbrellas will be turned inside out by the wind...sigh!
Have a great day at home...hope all is well with you and I don't have to worry about your Dr. appointment.

hugs hugs and more hugs. xoxoxo

I love to giggle and I guess the earth is like us...some days we cry and some days we giggle...I love to laugh! Come say hi :D

Rosie said...

Yes, the earth is changeable and that is her beauty...there is a little PMS happening today though...gorgeous photos... Have the very best Rosie

Virga is so difficult to photograph well. I oftentake pics of virga over Lake Champlain and The Adirondack Mountains, but contrast seems to be a constant challenge re posting them to the web.

Thanks for your post.

Oh Maria that is so very romantic...and how exciting to live in France!!! Where abouts?...I would just love to go either to France or Italy. My son has done some extensive travelling abroad {lucky boy}, and I shall use some of his photos in later on Rosie
