    1. Kiitos, Anne! :)
      Kuva on muutaman kilometrin päässä sijaitsevan pienen "kosken" yläpuolelta. Meidän kapea lahtemme on vielä kokonaan jäässä.

  10. Kauniit pilvet ja lumikuuro! Onko mahdollista, että pikkuherukka on jo kehittänyt noin muhkeat silmut - upeaa?!

    1. Kiitos, Pirkko!
      Pikkuherukka on tosiaan talvenkestävä ja avaa reippaasti silmujaan aivan ensimmäisenä, ihana kasvi. :)

  22. I was excited to see the lake thawing and then the ominous clouds appeared. I love this shot of them.
    With spring buds, delicious chocolates and a perfect yellow rose, I think your week finished on a high.

  31. Oh chocolate! Also love the clouds and the rose though!
    Am so happy you gave suggestions for the bird house, because you said the birds need to feel safe -I think that's the issue! There are a few very aggressive squirrels around, and a few loud blue Jays and crows!
    It's almost Sunday, so a gentle reminder for SEASONS - link up Sunday-Wednesday Have a great week ahead -please take it easy, blogging needs to be fun)

  32. Love that first shot of the ice leaving the lake. Beautiful :) And I'm impressed that you got above the clouds! Were you on a mountain top or in a plane? Spring is arriving to you at long last. We spent lots of time outdoors today with a warm sun encouraging little buds to come out ... another week like this and we may see some blossoms.

  33. Thank you all for your lovely comments! My photos don't do justice to the beauty of nature, but I hope they can at least a little bit convey the happiness we feel seeing the signs of the emerging spring.
