Sky is blue in contrast with the image posted below. Folks in Chicago say "If you don't like the weather just wait awhile, it will change." And so it does.

Hibiscus inside greenhouse, Chicago Botanical Gardens. Image shot through frosted window just a couple of weeks ago. Notice the grey sky, trees in background, and how dreary winter can be in contrast with the bright red color of the flower.
