Photographers and Poets Tuesday

Winter on Cape Ann, MA
Freezing, frozen, fair weather sky and more.....






Here at A Creative Harbor and it being February that means Winter in all its glory. It is a good time to be creative, to work around the cold, ice, snow and wind. Have a fancy teapot or two to have a warm cup of tea to delight the inner body and spirit. In the mosaic photos above ~


the upper left is "Ice on the Rocks" ~
upper right ~ 'Fancy Some Tea?' ~
lower left ~ 'Fair weather Sky'
lower right ~ 'Have another Ice on the Rocks'

In New England, one learns to go 'with the flow' as 'they' say.


For Carpe Diem Haiku ~ prompt 'wisdom'

  5. Great winter photos. I can feel the chill from the nature in my bones, and then becoming warm again, by the help of a hot cup of tea.
    I have learned to love my life, even if I don't understand it.

  6. How true your haiku! When I lived in New England many years ago the saying was, "If you don't like the weather , wait a minute!"

  18. testing ~ seems if I use my name and Google to comment it doesn't link to my blog but to google plus and I don't want to use the page as I have more people in my circles under my name than under my blog page ~ I am confused ~ any replies appreciated ^_^

  19. I wish I understood Google+ better. Actually I haven't really tried...just seems like one more thing to complicate my life.
    Your images of Ice on the Rocks (love the title)are very intriguing. Nature has so many beautiful surprises for us every day. Our winter is already drawing to a close here in Texas. We had a mild one so I've been able to keep doors and windows open as I paint. Extreme heat makes it pretty impossible to do that in the summer.

  34. Carol, I had a customer remind me of the benefits of snow as I complained about our recent blizzard the other day. She wisely reminded me that we live in the great lake state and we had a drought this summer so the snow is sorely needed to replenish our lakes. So I will agree with you; it is a good time to regroup and tend to our creative side within our homes.

  39. Nothing like a hot pot of tea and cake on a cold day. I look forward to the snow if we have fair weather skies like that. Our weather is fluctuated by 9 degrees at the moment, very strange, snow one day and disappeared the next.
