Finally!





I think we could be seeing spring in the mountains. There is talk of snow on Saturday, but I'm going to play Scarlett O'Hara and "think about that another day." Most of the giant icicles, two stories high, have fallen off the condo and scared Lucy all they're going to this year.  I am so ready for spring weather that is above 40 degrees.

I will be away from my blog for a bit. I know from your pictures that many parts of the country are experiencing an explosion of color, with blogging friends from afar enjoying fall color. Now it's time for me to find some of my own. While it's warming up, the ground is still mostly white.

Have a great weekend, everyone.

And a great weekend to YOU, Nancy. I am sure you will be doing whatever with camera in hand, right? I look forward to seeing your shining face back in my Reader soon... Have a great time off!

the ground around here is white as well (well, a white sandy beach)

Enjoy the break. I really do miss the spring in Kansas... it is spectacular to see the life

Grandma Nina said...

That white stuff is beautiful, but I know what it's like to want it gone already. We thought we had summer here already. 80 degrees yesterday and now it's snowing today. Go figure! Have a good weekend

I'm trying to accept the "lion" as well as the "lamb" of any season, but give me the endless summers of the Islands anyday! Take care and enjoy every moment, Nancy.

Liquide sunshine finally melting into light, making bright body, mind and soul, of nature and humankind as well.
Wishing you all the very best.

Such a spectacular photo, dear Nancy...and it looks just stunning with the colors of your blog! Hope you are having a lovely weekend...and that spring comes to you soon as well!! Love you, Janine XO

Andre said...

Isn't it amazing that we live on the same planet? Where I live we have had a drought for two months, so hot and so severe that we are not sure of water in the taps for the next day....
Great pictures and love the icicles !

Sylvia said...

Spring, finally! So beautiful; enjoy it.

Reya Mellicker said...

Hope that you find a warm spot, that is blooming with the sights of Spring. I could not bear having winter weather, in April! Cheers!

Rain said...

Spring this year has been a blessing for me, having such a sucky winter! It's quite pleasant here these days. Enjoy the weather Nancy! :))

Crossing my fingers for some sunshine!
I have stepped away from my blog, too. I think it's healthy. :)

Boomka said...

I tell you Nan, I went south for a long weekend and it was 87 when i left ny, it was hot down south and I come home to 56. 56? Come on man give me some spring. And then I come to your blog and you've got icicles. How dare you with your icicles! No to them. NO!

Anil P said...

Picture postcard beauty. Such serenity in the silence of the cold.

Enjoy the break.

Sniffles and Smiles said...
