Through the Lens Week 46

'Let children walk with nature, let them see the beautiful blendings and communions of death, life and their joyous inseparable unity.'
~ John Muir


We are linked this week with these creative bloggers:





Since we haven't been able to get out except to the deck my photos today are 'right in front of nose' ~ This is the hardest winter in a long time for New England.





'Muse Dog and Ice on door ~ She came speedily in needless to say. Brrrr!
Cape Ann MA





Pretty ice on our storm door ~ Snow, bitter cold and more snow predicted. Fun ~ no!





As you probably can tell by my posts ~ N ~ is for NO MORE SNOW ~ New England has had more than its fair share of  nature's  snow dance on Cape Ann MA, please.





Haiku expressing need for sun and no more winter!





Wishing you best in each day. xo

  1. For those of us who don't get to see snow in our own environment, the prospect of lots of it does evoke images of much fun and beauty, but I can understand that, when it is constant and restricts everyday activities, the novelty soon wears off! Hope you're managing to keep warm.

  6. Carol, do you need to scoop out a place for your doggie to go to do his business? I can remember doing that when we lived in the North. So sorry for all the snow you have gotten this winter. You must be getting pretty tired of it!

  10. I knew I'd see snow on your blog today, and it is pretty (even if you don't want to see any more). Have a great week - try to stay warm. And get ready for your next storm!

  11. oh I do feel for you Carol!!! We have it bad -but nothing like the amounts of that stuff you have been getting hit with. Even though it does make for some beautiful photos I know that you, like me, are ready to take springtime pics:)

  19. It's pretty but also very frustrating! I hope all that snow doesn't thaw at once and cause flooding!

  26. Carol, I am a first-time visitor who saw your comment about New England winter on Mari's blog and wanted to find out where you are living. We are recent to this area and living in Nashua, NH.\ as of Nov. Our native state is NJ and we spent 12 years on the VA eastern shore deciding to leave because we "missed" winter and snow. We still enjoy it, but wish it would have come in smaller doses and not one storm after another. Nashua got about 5 feet total accumulation from recent storms. Please stop in for a visit as we have posted some snow pics on our blog too.

  27. Hi Carol, I suggest you call Fed X and have them air lift some of the white stuff to the Rocky Mountain Woman ok? I have prayed for all of you snowed in. It would be ok if it was not so darn dangerous. I am guessing you are tired of it and could use a little color in your lives! I do love the photos though, thanks for sharing.

  28. Oh may for you and all NE - what a trail with all that snow and coooooollllldddddddd! All that snow in front of your nose-wink - is pretty but I hear yeah -- enough! Keep safe.
    Hugs

  29. I wish you could send us some! We are in bad shape this year and snow is our main source of water in the summer.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ohh! snowflakes! the wonders of how these ice crystals are beautifully crafted :D
    Stay safe and warm.

    ReplyDelete
  31. B-r-r-r! We got snow but not enough to make us snowed in.

    ReplyDelete
  32. You make a snowstorm look so pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Your frosty images are beautiful but I can tell you've had enough! Hoping that sunshine and blue skies come your way soon.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Book a holiday to Australia!! Although if it's any consolation we are having a colder than normal summer so it's just lovely here... Your photos are beautiful. Keep warm and looking for those positives in your long, hard winter :)

  36. Guess this is the hardest part of living in a Resort, Carol.
    I loved those snows when they came to New Hampshire.
    Please keep Art nice and warm, she is just a little doggy.

  37. love the first quote! hope you get some sunshine soon!

  38. The frosty pictures from the door are great. I did the same thing a few years ago. I liked mine, but yours turned out better. I'll try again on a cold day.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hello Carol! Your photos are lovely!
    We are buried in snow and ice, too. It's beautiful but sometimes a little bit tiring...
    We composed some kinds of Haiku poems at school, years ago.
    Yours is so inspiring that perhaps I need to try it again sometimes. Looks like fun!
    Stay warm! :)

  40. Each morning when I watch the news, it's all about snow, snow, snow! I can't imagine. I hope it's over for you really soon! Keep warm!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh boy! I love that first shot.

    ReplyDelete
  42. You've been hit hard with snow! How does doggie like it?!
    My cats feel differently. Daisy, the smallest, is out there watching the bird feeder. Dratted squirrels!!!

  43. I love the icy blue and the snow pattern in that first shot. Today we have temps not reaching 40 and a wind chill-highly unusual weather for here -the /d/e/e/p/ /s/o/u/t/h. Sunday it will be 70.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Yes, NE has really been hit and I hope it is finished. Love the photo with the sky!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm baaaaack. Just wanted to say that my grandchildren and I met the nicest girls from Tulane at one of the parades. They made sure my grandchildren got most all of their plush throws and a lot of the beads (and no flashing their fronts, either.). They were all on the volleyball team.
    Go Pelicans!

  46. You guys need a snow break and a big thaw!

  47. Harsh winters can be hard! Take care!
    Great series of pics.

  48. Your icy photos are beautiful, but they make me very cold. Hopefully spring arrives soon.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Very interesting photos. Some of the photos of snow send a chill up my spine.

    Excellent quote. If children are taught to enjoy nature, the world will be a safe place to live in. Modern man is destroying nature on the pretext of development. Global warming, truant rains, changing temperature are the end result of mindless destruction of nature.

    Best wishes

  50. So many snowflakes that you can't possibly count them all!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I so hope some warmth comes your way soon... your photos are glorious, but I know at what a cost this heavy amount of snow is to you all... I am glad that you got a glimpse of sun, it radiates from your haiku!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Oh the loveliness of those beautiful crystals. Diamonds that soon, we all hope, will melt away, but also remembered when the sun is so hot and the tea is iced. Have a wonderful weekend!! Thank you for your visit!
