When we look up from our garden to the woods, in a northerly direction, we observe a strange phenomenon… the sky is bluer than anywhere else. This was about a week ago…
Whatever the weather, there is so often a patch of blue up there!
There is a German saying “aus heiterem Himmel” (out of the clear sky), meaning out of nowhere, suddenly, “out of the blue“. But the word “heiter” usually means cheerful, or light-hearted.
I also like the expression “pie in the sky“, but then I’m obsessed with food… 😉
Other expressions regarding the sky:
The sky’s the limit
Red sky at night, shepherd’s delight; Red sky at morning, shepherd’s warning
Reach for the sky
Can you think of any more?
