More Contrasts

I am looking back to summer, when we enjoyed lots of colour…it is all so WHITE now! These were taken in our yard today , and  back in the summer, from approximately the same vantage point. I am joining in with Mary’s Mosaic Monday.

Hi Millie,
Sounds like maybe you are longing for warmer climes, is it time to take off for Arizona yet? I'm sure you are looking forward to the warmer weather!
Your place looks lovely even with all of the snow. Be sure to stay safe in the snow now.
Hugs, Cindy

We have pansies in the yard that are in bloom, but we've had to put frost blankets out to protect them. The cold got our banana trees which were gorgeous. They will come back, I hope, but I hate it when they freeze.

Your yard is beautiful in both seasons, Millie :-)

Waiting, is how I see the winter photos. Spring will be here soon, right? Take care and enjoy your week.

You'll appreciate spring and summer all the more for the snow and cold you've had this year. But oh, it's such a long time to wait.

Hi Millie,
I am so looking forward to green lawns and flowers! Here in Atlantic Canada we have been getting storm after storm. Spring can't come soon enough for me! Your maid of honor tarts look wonderful! Would love the recipe. Hope you have a lovely weekend.

Blessings,
Sandi
