~WINTER'S GRAND FINALE...


~Old Man WINTER letting us know
He isn't finished yet!
March came in like a lion~8" of snow & ice!


~There is SNOW on my Daffodils...:(

Do you see Winter..?
Look C l o s e r ...
I can see Spring~
Being disguised by Winter~Rose leaf buds
in cased in ice & daffodils peeking through
the snow ...
Sweetly reminding me
Spring is on the way!! :)


~Cat's Ice Sculpture Garden~


~As Beautiful as you are~Winter~ Go Away~
It's time for Spring!! :)

Winter grand finale?
Not here in Toronto, it is bitter cold.
But we missed the massive snow storm making lives miserable along the US East Coast.

Nice photos! And I second your caption on the last image – it's time for Spring!

Lovely ice photos. No signs of spring here just yet.

I don't know that I've ever seen nicer ice photos. So blue and sparkly! But yes, enough is enough. Let's have flowers!

Sorry I have been errant in my visits. I have had more on my plate than I could handle. You winter shots are great, although they look a little cold for me they are very beautiful. As usual your creativity and artistic ability are un equalled. I will try to keep up from now on.
Cheers

Hello Catherine!
Thanks for your visit and your comment in my blog.
Beautifull pictures in your blog. Where is the spring? I can not find him. Next days will be colder in Germany.

Hi Catherine,
thank you to you for your nice entry in my BLOG. It are absolute collage artist-whole miraculous pictures which you take. A pleasure for the eye. Dear greeting from the probably warmer Rheinhessen in Germany.

Hi Cat...gorgeous photos as always. As much as I dislike the winter, I do find ice magical to look at and photograph.

I do hope this is winter's big goodbye and that soon, spring will usher itself in.

Dear Cat,
Winter did show his stuff!
The ice is very beautiful but like you I am ready for spring!
Stay warm. Soon, very soon Spring will come and stay!

Great work with winter's last blast, hopefully!

The snow missed me here in Pa but we sure did start the week cold 9 deg Monday morning and then today we hit 70; typical March weather.

Barbara said...

Wow, that really looks wintery (and so cold). Is it an optical illusion ;-) !! I guess not, but I am sure this ice will disappear pretty soon!

Beautiful pictures Cat, but I'm hoping winter is done with us, it was a long and cold one and I'm looking forward to spring in all its glory.
