Speechless Sunday- looking for blue sky?

By

The Haband House in Eatonton.  I got to see the interior of this home built in 1844 on a tour of homes a couple of years ago and it's just delightful.  I took this photo this spring just as the trees were begining to leaf out.  Today is drizzly, overcast and gray and I was in search of some blue sky.  Found it and wanted to share it with you.

I just took some photos of a listing and the sky was so blue!  Looked like a postcard.  Great photo btw as it is raining down here in San Antonio too (or it sure looks like i)

Tammy, I too am longing for rich blue skies and not the haze that comes with high humidity. We are having no rain just hazy skies.

Does that mean you're getting a little cooler?  If you ever want to see blue AND water -- your background to your blog is wonderful.  I always love to see the photos you take!!

John and Irma- and must be all the places in between too.  Just spoke to a client moving here from Houston and he said it rained on him for hours while driving this way today.

Debbie- we get that sometimes too

Carla- yes yes yes it's cooler.  Today the high just barely got to 80 and the weather predicts 66 for the low tonight.  I love love love that.  It hasn't been below 71 at my house in weeks.

Tammy, I love the blue skies as well. We, too, have been having unbelievably beautiful weather. This along with rain has made the grass grow like crazy. Be well.

Tammy - Our blue skies have been few and far between lately, hopefully this week is nothing but sunshine.

Hi Tammy, I would have loved to tour the Haband house, too. I can only imagine how spectacular the interior is ... it's hubby and my dream to one day own a historic property again.

As far as the rain goes .. yep, pretty much a whole day affair. We were travelling home and my kids joked that our get-away cabin is sad that we are leaving it!

Hi Tammy-

It's amazing how a little blue sky can really light up one's day.  Well, that and the fantasy of living in a spectacular home like that.

Tammy,

A beautiful piece of blue sky it is!  We fortunately get tons of blue sky here in El Dorado Hills and all the inland areas of CA during the summers but I can never get enough of it!  Thanks for sharing!!!

Cal- thanks.  And we've had a lot of HOT so the rain cooling it down was appreciated.

Michelle- for some reason your comment made me start singing I never promised you a rose garden in my head

Andrea- it is beautiful inside too

Sara- It's beautiful, but not sure I would want the maintenance costs of an old home.

DeeDee- you don't have June gloom in your part of sunny California.  Been to visit my in laws twice in June, turns out fall is a much better time to visit.

Love the look of that house with the really blue sky.  It reminds me of Tara. . .Just before the war:-)

Tammy, what a perfect sky to have behind any house shot!  And this one looks like a special house.
