365 Nature – Day 160

In 2016 I’m doing a 365 Nature project. Each day of the year I will post something here about nature. It may be any format, a photo, video, audio, sketch or entry from my nature journal. It could be a written piece. Each day I will connect to nature in some way and share it here by the end of that day. You can keep up-to-date by subscribing to the RSS feed or be notified by email. See all the 365 Nature posts.

June is also 30 Days Wild and I’m participating again this year.


A return to blissful cool weather and clouds today was most welcomed by me. We just had the second warmest first week of June since the 1890’s and it was in the 80’s and 90’s. Yesterday and today we’ve had some pretty great clouds and it’s been a long time since I shared cloud photos. It’s been well over a week since I even took a photo of clouds and the last really good cloudy days were the end of May. Now the wind is picking up and it looks like we may get some rain, actual rain. It’ll be very much appreciated by my garden which seems to stay constantly dry lately, no matter how much I water it.
