Sky Watch Friday


This is a twig of my son's ornamental crab-apple tree. It has purple-red new leaves, deep reddish-pink flowers, and now some small purplish apples. There's one on this twig, but you need to look closely!
It looks lovely against the sky.
For more sky photos, visit the Sky Watch Site.

Those are really nice colors on the leaves. Is it fall or autumn where you live? Or, is this just the normal leaf color?

Nice photography.

It was a bit hard to see. But in the larger picture it couldn't be missed.

The colors on the leaves are so cute! The sky behind gives the apple tree a great background!

The leaves are lovely, but does that mean that summer is almost over? I hope not! My pictures are of a mackerel sky before the storm. I invite you to come see. - Margy
