The blue of heaven is larger than the clouds.

Love this picture! It reminds me how big and endless the sky is and how we are just one of many planets in the Universe! I love the tree also that stands alone! Love it!

Purdy picture, Marshy! Golden definitely does sound better than brown. I really love it when the hills are green and Teletubby-ish! :) Miss you and love you so much!
