A Beautiful Morning


The weather yesterday was warm and sunny the temps  got up to +4 or 39°F which is what it is right now so far .  This time of year  temps this warm melt a lot of the snow  . When the temps rise and as the snow melts it gets damp and foggy  and as the temps lower over night you end up with a hoarfrost . It wasn’t a big hoarfrost but just enough to cover everything and make it look pretty and mysterious . So of course out I went in my jammies to take photos . The air was damp with a little chill in it bit the sun was rising and all the birds and critters were busy and the chatter from them all  that echoed in the air over the valley was wonderful .

                               Warning heavy on the photos .

              Still only a few photos here that I took lol ! I get snap happy and taken away in beauty like this lol

         A flock of Canada Geese flying by in the light of the sunrise as they head to the river  I love the sound of them honking as it echo's in the sky as they fly by .

                                A light mist over the valley as the sun rises gives off a very mysterious yet beautiful sight  !

             Miggs waiting to go for her walk .  So I packed up my camera  felt wonderfully refreshed  after  being outside as the sun was rising   seeing, hearing and capturing some of  the nature and beauty first thing this morning  . I then went in got dressed and we went for a nice walk !

                                               Later today it is to be  raining , but for now I will enjoy the sunshine ! .

                                                                         Until next time my friends !

Nature is wonderful, never tire of your photo's.

Spectacular photos, the hoarfrost is amazing.
We've got temps in the seventies today, sadly warmer weather brings tornados in the South, so we are under the dreaded watch.
Spring exciting.

The snow is coming down. It was thunder, lightening, rain and hail earlier today. Now they say snow and the winds. Just what we wanted. At least most of our snow was gone so we will have some place to put it if we get that much. I like your pictures. Have a wonderful day and enjoy the sunshine. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Hoarfrost looks amazing!

We're due for some snow this evening, possibly changing to freezing rain or rain, depending on what the temperatures do.

I hoar frost is so pretty. Lovely photos. I like the sunrise one. Still sunny here in Calgary but it's going to be much colder the next few days and snow on Saturday. (just a bit) :)

Your pictures are of course so very pretty!! I bet that you are glad that the snow is starting to melt rather than being added to, spring WILL come soon!! xx

Faye Henry said...

Lovely pics as always.. You are an early riser, eh? xo

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

Again, your photos are amazing and a perfect way to start the day--I hope the rain (that we're getting on Friday) hasn't and won't dampen the spirit of your day -- I have a feeling it didn't! :-)

I do hope those blue birds hang around as maybe Spring might actually arrive sooner rather than later!!

Great photos, especially the last one!
