Thursday Thoughts – In My Windows – Vårvinter

A short visit in my windows – because now the sun is shining in! Spring is knocking on the door, and this time of the year we call ”vårvinter”, a word for the season in between – between winter and spring. The name translated would be ”spring winter” in English. If you have another/the proper word for it, please tell me!

Windows – my glass house still wears its roses with pride, but in my home spring is exploding in every corner and every colour…

We are grateful to see the light coming back, lifting us up from the darkest season. Fortunately, I love all seasons and would not be without any of them! My favourite is spring, with Life returning. The cranes are calling, and the tits and finches are fighting already…Yesterday a flock of skylarks were sighted in the fields south of my home. Welcome!

Thursday’s Special: Pick a Word in February

Time for Paula’s Pick a Word again!






Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #136 – Alphabet Challenge, Letter S

Let’s go with the letter ”S” for the alphabet challenge, says Patti. It could be…snow, sun, smile, shadow, shoes, or conceptual ideas like silent, slow, serene, etc.

There is another alphabet, whispering from every leaf, singing from every river, shimmering from every sky.
― Dejan Stojanovic

So, let’s start with a Summerhouse Sunset…and then travel South for some more S’s…before coming Safely back again.

Now, this week we invite you to share images that feature a subject starting with the letter S. Or, capture an image that illustrates a concept with the letter S, such as serene, somber or silent.  In your post, include a link to Patti’s original post and use the Lens-Artists tag so that everyone can find your post in the WP Reader.
Last week, we were inspired by Sheetal’s marvelous challenge, ” Glimpse into Your World” Starting in India, your posts took us all around the world. Thank you for sharing the places, people, and things that make you happy – and made us happy too.
Next week, I, Ann-Christine, will be hosting Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #137, so be sure to pay me a visit and hopefully join in.  In the meantime, have a lovely, creative week and please – stay safe and warm!

Thursday Thoughts – Hiking Vedema

I guess this was maybe the last lasting snow this year – a beautiful day for us and the dogs. Start in soft sun and finish in the cold of the evening. Put on your warmest clothes and come along!
