March



Hello all! Here are my photos for this week's Sunlit Sunday and Mosaic Monday.  Thank you, Karen and Judith, for hosting!

This photo was taken last year in March and it's one of my favourites. The sun was going down and it started to snow. It was a magical moment.







Another sunset a year ago: the beautiful colours of the clouds reflected by the ice covering our beloved lake:










Some recent photos taken through a kitchen window:




This is a rowing boat, turned upside down. :)







This is a massive disappointment. :) These potted tulips are (supposed to be) 'Sweet Desire'. They should look completely different.











Have a beautiful new week!

  8. Upeita kevättalven pastellisävyjä noissa ylemmissä luontokuvissa! Ei voi kun taas kerran todeta, että kyllä luonto on kaunis ja parhaimmillaan juurikin taianomainen.

  10. Kauniisti kimmeltävät lumikiteet auringon loimussa! Pettymyskö - "Sweet Desire" - kuvien tulppanit ovat kuitenkin ihastuttavia?!

  19. Your sunrise shots are beautiful especially how you captured the sunrise on the water, Sara....and how it reflects on the snow, fabulous! Those tulips might be a bit of a disappointment but they are gorgeous none-the-less.

  20. As always Sara, your images just take my breath away!

    The tulips are lovely but disappointing for you they were wrongly labelled.

  21. What a beautiful pictures of nature and what a beautiful colors.
    And tulips may be disappointed because you expected something else, they're OK! They seem a little bit at a peony.
    Have a nice week!

    Love, Gerry

  22. Glad you told us what the snow-covered heap is - I would have never guessed it was a rowboat. The tulips are so pretty in spite of not being what you expected. Love that pink colour.

    Good Monday ;)

  26. The flowers are pretty and what gorgeous sunsets. You had a lovely snow, I see! :)

  27. Quite a bit of snow if the rowboat is completely covered. The tulips are pretty Sara even if they're not what was intended. I once purchased a hard to get plant and paid money appropriate to it only to find a plain jane instead in the pot. The nursery owner said people switch tags all the time, you'd think they could develop a better system...

  32. Gorgeous peaceful images.
    Your tulips are still very beautiful but it can be a little frustrating when you think you have bought something else. Do you know what they are called?
    Have a great week ahead with hugs from Prunella :)

  33. Snow and tulips - that is what I have today, too. Tulips to brighten the inside and snow falling outside.

  34. Like everyone else, I think your sunset shots are lovely. The view from your kitchen is interesting - the rowboat is in hiding.
    The tulips may be a disappointment to you, but they are nonetheless beautiful.

  38. I love your outdoor photography, Sarah, and the beautiful skies of winter. I'm sorry you're disappointed in them. I think they're very beautiful, but I understand that you had been anticipating different flowers.
