We've had warm days and beautiful skies with these wonderful cumulonimbus clouds for a spectacular September. We're going into another hot weekend with temps in the 90s. This is what it looks like in SoCal. How is it where you are? For more pretty views, visit Skywatch Friday

We planted a baby Crepe Myrtle tree near our pond in the front yard and as you can see in the last picture, they can reach for the sky. So, grow baby grow. Hoping to provide shade someday.
