When you live in a country with little rain, there is a lot of cloud watching that happens. The BOM (Bureau of Meteorology) is my most visited website and it’s used to work out what I’m going to wear, whether or not I hang the washing outside and if I water the plants. You see I put an enormous amount of trust in the inexact science of weather predicting. Did you know my blog name is an homage to meteorology? True story. So it probably doesn’t surprise you to know that, without exaggeration, my father has kept a log of every inch of rain that has fallen in the 2 townships he has resided in over the last 40+ years. This may explain a little of my fascination.
I also love cloud motifs (and snowflakes and rain drops..) and I have recently been drawn back to them. They haven’t changed much since I added clouds to the sky of my childhood drawings. I really can’t go past their fluffy, irregular shapes.
Oh look, it’s cloudy outside – fingers crossed we’ll get some rain.
My cloudy finds are all via Etsy:
