To help me appreciate the fact that it isn't cold enough to snow again, I decided to show you a bit of my world when it is covered with snow!  Take note of the expression on the seagulls face and you'll see the general response to snow in the northwest!
Have a wonderful, beautiful week! 

Winter is nature's way of saying, "Up yours."   Robert Byrne

To shorten winter, borrow some money due in spring.  W.J. Vogel

Beautiful snow collage, Sylvia... Every time I think it is too warm to snow here, we get more cold weather!!!! We can't relax until about the middle of April...

We are home from our 2nd trip is a month--and both of us have colds.. Yuk! Guess it will be REST for this upcoming week for both of us.

Hugs,
Betsy

Ha ha -- I love that gull. (I wonder why he doesn't fly south with us other snowbirds ;>)...oh I know, because then he wouldn't get back to the PNW in time to enjoy the beautiful spring. (Not that I'm speaking personally or anything!)

I feel for the seagull huddled in the cold. The snow is pretty in pictures but too close for comfort. We had a snowfall that lasted a several hours a few days ago. It soon melted but at this very moment I am sitting at the computer and watching a very cold wind bend trees outside my window. Mother Nature will not be pushed into early spring this year.

Vita Stunder said...

Oh Sylvia, the expression on the seagulls face is amazing!

Have a great week :)

Winter sure is pretty but it will be nice to see flowers soon.

Rajesh said...

Wonderful winter shots. I can feel the cold.

Carver said...

The seagull's expression is great. Pretty snow shots.

Good quotes :-)
No more white stuff for us too I hope.

Snap said...

Oh, my! I bet you are glad it isn't snowing! The photos are lovely. Poor seagull!

George said...

Your world looks beautiful covered in snow, but I think I agree with the seagull when it comes to that white stuff.

Leovi said...

I love those beautiful pictures with a beautiful atsmósfera winter light delicious, exquisite mosaic. Greetings.

Al said...

Thanks for the reminder, as we're in our snowiest month (April is our second-snowiest). But I do like the snow, and these photos too. I hope you and Sam have a wonderful week.

Hi Sylvia, I love the quotes! And the look on the seagulls face is very much like mine when I see snow. I love it in photos though, your snow is beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Kay L. Davies said...

I love the look on the seagull's face, Sylvia. I'm betting that seagull's name is Robert Byrne.
Your world looks the way our probably should but doesn't. It isn't warm here, though. It's above freezing, however, with plenty of sunshine, so we can't complain.

My son’s children have really enjoyed your snow this year. It looks so pretty in the pictures. genie

Gaelyn said...

Glad for you it doesn't look like that now. You're probably watching the crocus bloom.

SandyCarlson said...

These are just incredible!

lotusleaf said...

Vogel had a clever way of shortening winter! In these parts, we long to shorten the summer:(

magiceye said...

brrr
beautifully captured!

Martha Z said...

About now we'll take precipitation in any for and it looks like maybe we will get it.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Hey Sylvia, that looks really cold.

We are supposed to get to over 80 this week. Too warm too soon. First snake sighting reported out in the woods.

Ebie said...

Wow! That's a thick volume of snow! We need your melted snow to water our fields!

But on the other hand, love the wintry white photos!

Indrani said...

The sea gull seems to be utterly disappointed. Great pictures.

ladyfi said...

Wonderful snow shots! I do love winter...

Wish the world was as beautiful as you show it Sylvia.

I have to agree - the gull does not look best pleased at all!

Nice set of pictures to remind me of snow.

Have a nice week.

Liz said...

Great post Sylvia. Love the quotes!

JM said...

What a wonderful 'white' mosaic! And what a contrast to our winter... it's the hottest and driest in the last 80 years! If it doesn't rain soon, this year will be hell!

I don't particularly like snow but they are gorgeous to look at. So thanks for the photos that I can admire from hot weather. :)

Gattina said...

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
