YOU CAPTURE - WEEK 6

Okay ..... as many around North America can attest to, this week's challenge was a bit of a toughie due to Mother Nature and her wish to not cooperate. I know for me, I am tired of that wet, icy white stuff and just itching to get out and be wrapped in the warmth of those sunshine rays (with sunscreen on of course).

So, sadly, my photos this week are not good, in fact are cheesy. Both were taken yesterday in a moment where the rain had just finished up to take away the snow. And yes, the snow is back on the ground this morning with a nice fresh layer of ice on it too. The good news is that we are supposed to hit the double digits next week .... sigh .... it can't come soon enough for me!!

Yes - I am hoping that Mother Nature will take the hint with my sidewalk chalk graffiti.



A shot of our backyard that we landscaped last year. We went from trees and mud to a nice open, grassy, fenced in play area. And from the looks of it, the sod looks like it is starting to green up nicely!

That's it folks! Head on over here, to see what others have captured or if you would like to join in on the fun too!!

You are hilarious! The angle of your yard shot is really cool too :)

I'm sure the snow will get the hint! Your command is very authoritative (what with sidewalk chalk and all). Cute photo. Yard looks like fun too!

I AGREE WITH YOU...SNOW GO AWAY! Did you have to lay on the grass to get that cool angle of your yard? Fun play area!

Erin said...

I agree with the sidewalk graffiti!

Simple yet effective. We're quite the opposite--Colorado had NO SNOW all winter so I'm relishing our recent blizzards, with more to come!

But make no mistake: I would never survive those long Canadian winters!

the grass is green-ing nicely

You can tell the snow to move south for a few weeks ;) I'll gladly take a bit of white, instead of the cat/dog/elephant style rain we've been getting.

the yard shot is neat!
