  1. I love those cold rainy days - perfect for snuggling under a blanket with a book or movie.

  2. Hello and Happy Valentine's Day tomorrow! I know you are weary of the rain, but I love that first photo. I so enjoy your photos for the different prompts. Your art for Valentine and Springtime are precious. Here in north Georgia, we are beginning to see a few blooms. So delightful to view a little color again!

  4. well , happy Valentine's Day to you too! And yes, come on angel of spring. Been thinking about you and the forecast in your neck of the woods. We were lucky compared to the many areas north of us. Hope Zoe is keeping warm indoors:)

    Have a good new week!

  7. It looks like a cold and nasty week, but you got some nice photos out of it. I won't tell you about all our sunshine and warm weather (over 60 even at my house) - instead I'll tell you about the snow we had on Sunday. Have a wonderful, warmer week!

    G'day Carol... from the Great Down Under Parts!!! Yes, have been travelling and mostly out of touch. Won't be back in my own place for another 3-4 weeks. Am ready for it. The heat here in OZ has been atypical and late, much like that blizzard you appear to be enduring your side. Love your angels. Sending Love of the Universal kind this Valentines! YAM xx

    Happy Valentines Day!
    Peace :)

  11. Shame about those raing, grey days Carol. Looks like you had a few good ones in-between. Stay positive with those pictures and sketches. We like.

  12. Cabin fever is not something to relish as I am sure you find it difficult to settle down and do other things if you haven't had your daily fix of a walk! Let's hope the sun shines down on you this week.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love the mood in that first shot.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Good morning and happy Valentine's Day. Your little angels are so sweet. Those gloomy days seem so long but soon there will be some sunshine to brighten your day. It is sunny and warm here. We need some rain if you can believe that. Highly unusual for this time of year. Take heart...be well...Peace...

  15. I so love your wintry lanscape, it's so charming ... and your baby, for sure, I'm sending many kisses to her !

    Enjoy the remainder of your week, sweet Carol

  17. Beautiful photos, Carol, but I think I love the sunrise picture best, probably because I'm far from being a sunrise person, so I only see sunrises vicariously.

  67. I enjoyed your weekly views and hope you get some relief from the rain soon. We had 15 inches of snow just a couple of weeks ago but it's all melted now and yesterday it was in the 60's! The weather will start getting better soon for both of us.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Lovely photos, as usual, Carol. I wish we had some rain here. The bit we got on Sunday was not enough. Your little Angels are so cute!
