I'll be seeing you..










Color. Our eyes look for it and rejoice. 
We are having a mild winter by past experience. Still...
Heaven help those in the East...

Lovely photographs of your Oregon spot. Enjoy your pleasant winter.

Those are delightful pictures, Rosaria.

I'm delighted you're having a mild winter. We've not been having much of the -40 weather this year, and we've less snow that last year. But it's not quite what i would call mild.

Blessings and Bear hugs!

What? The Great Lakes have now made it possible to walk across the border to Canada, no tolls or customs.

Yes color. I fresh white snow can be beautiful. But after while the monochromatic drabness sets in here in Gopherland. And the cold. I look for drifts of color in the landscape. The red twigged dogwood. The bright red highbush cranberry shrubs. The cardinals at my feeders. And wait for spring...:)

Your photos are really lovely and tranquil. Glad you are having a mild winter.
Wish we could say the same about a mild winter.
I expect I will end up with web feet soon, if it rains anymore!

What a gorgeous array of photos showing the slow transition from a misty winter to a colorful promise of spring! Thanks for much for this study in peace and tranquility!

Lately, I have been walking the same old streets in Woodland Hills I used to, thinking of you and our young kids then. Decades have passed, but the pictures are still pretty fresh in front of my eyes. Emotions, oh emotions!

I think every area has it's beauty and it's challenges. We've had a cold, nasty Winter..last year we had it easier...that's the way it goes but I never tire of seeing the change of seasons and I'm really looking forward to the first look of Spring. Thanks for sharing your beautiful part of the world!

Is that bright light caused by sunshine?
I seem to remember it . . . . .

It looks just beautiful! I'd like to come until our snow disappears.

Hi Rosaria .. it's such a lovely part of the world with so many shades and lights ..

The weather here is mild too - yet we're under water .. thankfully I'm not but many parts of the country are ...

Today is sunny - bliss! Cheers Hilary

We are having a cold winter in Texas. I have covered my plants so much, I think it has now become fruitless. Will have to begin anew come Spring.

I am ready for Spring. I think. Probably means, however, that I will have to shave my legs. Shorts and all.

Such beautiful shots. I spent a month visiting family and friends in the South - my roots - in Jan. I've never been so cold in my life. Started in Tampa, next to Columbus and Atlanta, then to New Orleans. Couldn't even get to Houston because New Orleans bridges were iced and I didn't make my flight. Still, it was a great trip, visiting friends of 40 - 50 years, still managed to gain 8 lbs eating great Southern food. Now back on salads!

and the Midwest. Two days without power her in Bluff Country. Snowdrifts beyond belief, roads blocked for day in our rural area. We should stayed another month in Florida....:)

Some very lovely photos here, Rosaria. Colourful indeed.
