Skywatch Friday No. 20


This is my first Skywatch Friday. I thought it might be fun to watch the sky around the oak tree in my front yard. I live in a house that was built by my uncles, dad, and grandfather. We grew up spending our holidays and many a summer day at my grandparent's house, it has been a sanctuary for the entire family. This tree was the first thing we would see when we got close to the house, it is a family landmark.
I thought that I would use the skies around the tree for Skywatch Friday for the next year. It will allow my family to enjoy the tree that has so much meaning to all of us.

Welcome to SWF. It seems we have something in common, a love of horses. I've had four in my lifetime even though I've always lived in the city. I can't have one now since my life has taken an unusual twist. You'll see if you come to take a look at my sunrise, sunset. -- Margy

It must be so wonderful to live in a place where so much of your family history surrounds you. What memories you must have.
Thanks for sharing the photo of the gorgeous tree.
