Well thats a very neat 'make do' - in spite of the weather. Very nice photos! Now I wonder if thats the very same storm the weather off is threatening us with tonight and tomorrow. It sounds like a whole bag of tricks - the nastiest part will be the freezing rain. Well, wait and see. ATB!
When the weather gives you ice--make ice cream. Or snow cones. Or wait a few minutes and it will change. Hope things are warming up there. Blasted cold here. And windy. But (knock on wood) no earthquakes.
Maureen-Ha! Actually they were gray (or grey, or your new spelling which I like-greay....although I know you meant to say "great" and I thank you for that) before I tinkered them heavily in Photoshop. I took three of the photos around 5:30 pm when I got home from work so there was just no contrast to them at all when I looked at them on the computer. I took the photo of the ice on the kerria the next day when it was very gloomy outdoors. Isn't that an interesting ice formation though? There were a lot of things flash frozen while thawing. There was a big icicle rope of hanging ice off a window---somehow it had slumped off the sill and then froze fast. Pretty cool. Couldn't get a good enough picture of that one though.Mental- Yes. But I know spring will happen soon. And then it will snow again. But I know crocuses will be coming up soon and they look very pretty in bloom, even when their bottom halves are under snow. :-)Rusty-There's a new storm starting that is going on right now. That must be the one that's in your thoughts. It's very dark outdoors (it's around 4 pm) and it just thundered....and lightninged (is that a word?) so I will probably have to get off this computer soon and watch what happens. "Bag of tricks" is right!!!!Leenie-Everything but earthquakes down here. :-/ I don't mind earthquakes but I only experienced the non-damaging ones when I lived in San Francisco. I had some friends from S.F. visit years ago and they were amused to see that my house was not bolted to the foundation. :-/Okay, time to go because it's either sleeting or hailing out there with the lightning....and the thunder. Yeezus (as my Norwegian relatives would say). I guess I got my wish for some different sort of weather than the one I was complaining about.
It was a little freaky last night here too. But itsa gonna be beautiful this week Maria. Point that vehicle toward Aussie Acres!
Maria, I researched your site today and saw all the lovely photos--miss you. Love, Mom
