  3. Lovely photos! We are having some unusually cold weather here in north Florida this week. Not as cold as you are though!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Cold but pretty - it reminds me of the North Shore on Long Island where I lived many years ago. Good luck with your storm, I wish we'd get at least one good snow this winter!

    Yes, it looks chilly! That sunset is all too familiar on this side of the pond... low and silvery; tho' for the past three days, haven't seen the hills, never mind the sun, so thick the fog! It's always a joy to see it from your side... Happy week to you! YAM xx

  6. what glorious photos-you have such a good eye Carol! Lovely angels. i was wondering what they were calling for up your way. here we are looking at anything from 12" to over 24-yikes!! yes, what happened to our warmer days with the promise of Spring? Stay warm, and I'm sure you'll have Zoe all bundled up too:)

  7. Stay warm. We are a little seasonally cool here but it looks like you are going to have a blizzard.
    I love doves myself. The cooing is wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Wonderful scenes as always Carol. I especially liked the tree in monochrome today. AND the sky and dove.

    Of course it goes without saying the sweet fur baby and your sketches are eye catching. :o)

    ReplyDelete
  9. Stunning sceneries! And the dove is very cute :-) We have Mourning Doves around here, too.
    I imagine your area is covered with snow now. Stay warm and safe!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I feel like that Mourning Dove looks...cold. Indeed where did our normally warmer month of March go?? February seemed to have sucked all the warm air from March. I hope you have power and have no ill affects from the blizzard. Hang on to your hat.

  11. Lovely shots, especially that chilly sunset.

    ReplyDelete
  12. The puffed up dove gives a good sense of the cold! Hopefully, the warmth of spring will wrap winter in a big hug sooner rather than later.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I had a fund conversation with my granddaughter. She saw a mourning dove in the afternoon and suggested it should be an afternoon dove!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Lovely photos, do you ever go exploring around the rocks?

    ReplyDelete
  15. From the photos your weather does look so much better than last week Carol. I think it is truly warming up so I hope you don't get that snow storm that is taking place down in New York It was on Sky news.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Love your photos...we've had an Arctic style winter this year on the west coast (Vancouver Canada) and we're all anxious for spring to make an appearance. We see crocuses sprouting but then we get a dump of snow! SNOW???? In MARCH??? Hurry up springtime!

  22. I was just looking at your lovely photos and thinking how quickly the snow had gone, happy days for you, and then of course the killer line about expected foot of snow. Yikes. Wishing you a warmer week to come.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  25. those rocks in the first image look like bowling balls from being washed around by the waves.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hello Carol, it does look frigid in Cape Ann but you took such beautiful shots of the ocean and trees and birds and warmed my heart with your lovely haiku!
    Best wishes!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I'm loving your series of angels, Carol. Awww so sweet and each have that feeling of connecting with the previous illustration. Well done. :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Hello, That dove!!! Are they pigeons? I also call them Mourning Doves. They mate for life. One year a pair built a nest right outside my kitchen door. I don't think they knew how much traffic there would be. Unfortunately, they did not return the following year.

  57. Go away winter! I like 'jetty' picture, because it gives warmth to my heart :) ok, ok, winter tree picture is beautiful too.

    ReplyDelete
  58. You need to finish that one angel to keep you warm. (I know I'm reading this late -- I hope you and the pup and the angels all stayed cozy through the storm.) I do love your scenery -- but it does look too cold for March.

    ReplyDelete
  59. spring is a fickle lover this year my friend! stay warm and know the dreams of flowers become more real with every passing day! xo
