Thanksgiving, Sky and A Parrot Flower

26 Nov


We celebrate Thanksgiving at our house in honour of all our family and friends, including blogger friends, in America – in Georgia, Hawaii, Arizona, Washington State, Vermont and Massachusetts and elsewhere.  We have cooked a mini turkey (a chicken!) tonight and served it with some sides using recipes from family in Atlanta.

The sky this afternoon was very dramatic – I think its called a Mackerel Sky.

Our neighbour has the most amazing Strelitzia that reaches to the ceiling in her conservatory and it has five flowers! They are remarkable.

Strelitzia, also known as Bird of Paradise

      Thank you. The sky was amazing. Have a look at Heyjude, in the comments. She captured the same sky a bit later with a wonderful sunset. 🙂

    That certainly is a mackerel sky and I have a photo tomorrow of it at sunset! Incredible!
