Lovely photographs Linda, and thanks for the warm wishes to us bloggers in the snow.
looks wonderful and warm!Cold here but no snow!
Thank you Linda for those warm photos. Although it is supposed to be summer here in NZ, it has been very cold with chilly winds and hail, so thanks for bringing sunshine down this way too!Happy New Year to you and Gary!P, L, & Ginger the cat
Linda that beautiful geese photo at the top looks like a PAINTING!! Usually it's the other way around -you really artfully captured a lovely moment!!
Great photos & thanks for the warmth -- never got above 25 degrees here today! (Love the circle photo)
Nice photos. I love that lamp post.
Thank you for the lovely shots and thoughts. I do feel warmer.
Thank you for posting the beautiful pics. It's -20 here this morning.
Hi Kitty, thanks, I wouldn't mind being in the snow if I was in your cozy cabin, but I am sure it has it's drawbacks.Hi Meredith, thanks, even though we are warmer in temperature, the fog has set in and it is very damp but I can't complain compared to what others are experiencing.Hi Peter, thanks, I knew you were close to your summer, but even that can be hard to deal with sometimes. We are at the mercy of mother nature so much of the time even with our modern conveniences. Happy New Year to you, Laura and Ginger.Hi Judy, thanks, I hope it warms up for everyone soon. Lots of these photos have such inspiration for clay work I find.Hi Cindy, thanks, I was just looking at that lamp photo again and thinking it would make a great pot, art deco inspired.Hi Patti, thanks, when I posted this and saw your photos and the geese you had I thought we were on the same wave length.Hi Betsy, thanks and welcome, boy that is cold, best to have a cup of tea and sit by the heater when it is that cold, I think.
Thank you for your lovely photos and warm wishes! Ahhhh…my sister and I use to have a pet grey goose she named Honky Tonk. What is the picture of the holes?
hi linda, glad you're warm!
Hi Jewels, thanks, what a great name for a goose. I understand that geese can make great watch geese alerting folks to someone entering their property. The piece with the holes was on the back of a piece of equipment. Gary and I were trying to figure out what it was. We were thinking it could have been a seeder or some type of planter, but none of it seemed logical.Hi Jim, thanks, hope the weather changes for a lot of folks soon.
Linda..those Canada geese look way to comfortable in that warm California water. :).no wonder they head south in the winter..well, that and it is toooo 'blinkedy/blank' cold up here!:) and...great photos!Take care on your travels.T.
Heartwarming post! Your lovely photos make me feel relaxed! It was the first time I saw Canada geese! Thank you for sharing! Love the contrast of color; white and green in the fourth photo!
Hi Trish, thanks, yes, I guess the birds are smart. They call people who move south in their RVs snowbirds - must be where they get that name.Hi Sapphire, thanks, did you notice that the photo shows right through the window on the other side and a tree in the distance? I love windows and doors, they are somehow thought provoking to me.
Linda, great shots, esp liked the window one and the Church(?). In my day job I am an architect esp churches, designed 90+.
Hi Max, thanks, what a great job you have. The windows are from a building and not a church although they definitely look gothic or what should be in a church to me too. I didn't write down what the building was from, but it was relocated to the museum grounds from somewhere else. I have another church photo in my photo archives from a church in Shanika in Oregon that I just love that has windows similar to these. In my estimation, churches have some of the best architecture in the world. You should post some of yours on your blog I would love to see them.
I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
