Because I'm unwilling to let go of spring and summer, today's post will be a continuation including a surprise snow shower we had a few days ago! Those big white splashes are NOT a camera problem, they are the HUGE snowflakes we had! I was happy to see them go once I had gotten a shot of them!
Have a wonderful, beautiful week!
Blogger is having one of it's junky days and I can't leave a comment on most blogs -- instead I get a message urging me to join Blogspot???? I'll keep trying.

I like that! Thanks for your visit and kind comment. I wish you a great week. Next week I will be away to visit Dina in Jerusalem.

This is the season when Winter and Spring do battle. Spring will win but it might take a while.

ladyfi said...

Wonderful shots - love that last one! I want to soar with those birds too.

TexWisGirl said...

kanak7 said...

Wonderful shots! Love the flowers and the snowflakes!!

Pat Tillett said...

Very nice! I guess when you live in a area with real seasons, it can be a real battle between winter and spring. It's a good thing spring always wins!

Mama Zen said...

Those are huge snowflakes!

Hello There, Since I've been away from blogging for a week, I have alot of catching up to do. We had a wonderful trip to Arkansas --but it's great to visit with my blog friends. Hope things are going well with you.

I always love your photos and quotes. That beach one called my name today --since it's COLD here... I'm SO ready for spring!!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

Hi Sylvia, what a contrast of photos, gray and cold, compared to the color of the flowers, then heat, blue and sea, of course I'll take the latter, sea and more sea.
Greetings. -

Your snow picture is very nice, but I prefer the other pictures. It's very windy and cold here today -- I'm ready for warm Spring breezes.

hannah said...

Hello Sylvia,
Your world looks nice and warm today. Colourful too.
Thank you for being part of the team.

We have had some very nice spring days now and I am starting to wake up from the long winter :)
Like your words and photos Sylvia :)
Have a great week!

So far winter is still here; great post. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

snowfall followed by a sunny beach? A peculiar world indeed.
I hope Blogger will get better soon. Maybe it has got a cold. ;(

EG Wow said...

I'm so sorry Blogger is having a bad day! I sure hope it's not spoiling your fun!!

Vita Stunder said...

Awesome series!

Have a great week!

Snap said...

Huge snow flakes! I'll take the gorgeous flowers or the beach please! Lovely shots!

Pam said...

Those snow flakes are huge and I don't blame you for wanting them gone. No slipping and sliding for you and your pooches.
Love the spring photos.

Be well and Happy, Sylvia.
cheers :)

Hi Sylvia, I love how you went from the big snow flakes to the gorgeous flowers. That is how our winter has been, cold and warm. Your photos are all lovely and the scenery is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing, have a lovely week!

Arija said...

I do hope we get at least some snow in the air in our fast approaching winter. Autumn chill id most definitely here already.
Love your summer scenes and soon it will be upon you once again. As we get older, the months just fly past.

Thank you for your kind and caring words of comfort my friend.

Andrea said...

Lovely photos and quotes you got there. In reality, i wish you can send here some cold you have been overwhelmed with for so long.We are just starting our dry season, very hot and humid, and our temperature soared abnormally to 34.5C last weekend! That is scary when we reach April, nobody might be brave enough to get out of the buildings. Even at night it is so suddenly hot at home. So we will be grateful for some cold winds to come!

EcoRover said...

You are truly the Queen of Memes, and do it well. Blogger drives me nuts sometimes too--having an episode now where I can type a comment but the "post" or "publish" button doesn't show.

Rajesh said...

Wonderful views from your world. Those flowers are gorgeous.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Lovely -- first quick glance I thought you were continuing summer (beautiful Pacific Northwest summer) and then I remembered that first picture and the white spots,and I was sitting there trying to figure out what they were when I thought to myself ("doh, read the words, you idiot").... aha! I find I do that quite a bit on your posts. I'm so eager to look at your beautiful photos, I don't read the words until after I've gazed at them for a while. (That's just the opposite of what I do most of the time! A testimony to your beautiful photography!)

SandyCarlson said...

Utterly gorgeous, one and all. You made my evening. Thank you, dear Sylvia.

Cher said...

sorry to hear about that, Sylvia. mine seems to work fine. have a great Tuesday anyway! :)

jewaicious said...

What beautiful captures, each so different, visually. I like the varied presentations of weather.

The floral capture is gorgeous, and the ocean scenes...calming and lovely.

Linda Reeder said...

There is much wisdom in your quotes this evening, and quite the juxtaposition in seasonal photos!

Lee Spangler said...

It feels like a good time to be reminded of warmth by seeing your Summer pix. Great quotes always need to remember how much I like your blog

Lew said...

Very nice! Looks like you have four seasons there.

Randi said...

Hi Sylvia, I love the first shot with the big snow flakes. I have lots of snow here in winter, but I have never seen these big ones. I love your quotes!

Dianne said...

Beautiful cottage flowers... Have a wonderful week Sylvia and keep clicking.

Ebie said...

Hahaha, those snow flakes look like hail or chalk.

Yeah, the weather is weird. Today its 80 degrees and it will be 30 degrees cooler in the next days.

Enjoy your day!

Leovi said...

I love the contrast of the snow in the first and the other hot photos. Beautiful flowers. Greetings.

Indrani said...

What a wonderful mix of colors, snow and water! Great post.

Stewart M said...

Splendid set of shots - and the snow flakes are big!

CameraCruise said...

Beautiful shots, love the flowers!
Wish you a beautiful day.
Greetings Mette

JM said...

Contrasting images! First the snow and then a splash of beautiful colours and a summer feeling.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

All beautiful images Sylvia, but love the first one the best mainly because it's so darn hot here in Perth that the sight of snow would be just fantastic! Can you believe we're almost half way through the week again!

Anna said...

Hi Sylvia, what a lovely photo's and my favorite is the one with the flower... I love the colors and I can smell the Heliotroop over here... ;-))
Greetings from Holland,
Anna :-))

NixBlog said...

Lovely images, Sylvia. The Spring flowers are just amazing! Hope Spring is not too far off in your part of the world.
