Smile! The world is a beautiful place (^_^)


Only seven weeks into 2015, and this weekend I already found flowers to photograph. Crazy! This winter’s no winter.

  1. LUCKY YOU, finding flowers, Cee! Seriously, are you disappointed? We have about 3 feet of snow here and it is ZERO degrees outside. I am drooling over your flower and panting for March to be here. *sighs* Love, Amy

    • Thanks Amy, and don’t worry, spring is coming soon! Yes, to be honest I’m a bit disappointed, I feel a bit cheated since we didn’t get any winter at all over here. It feels more like a loooong autumn (and not the beautiful, colorful one). Btw, congrats on the 3k, well deserved! πŸ™‚

      • *blushing* Aw, thank you, Cee. I honestly don’t know how the numbers got so high. Yes I do work very hard, yet to see how many come to Petals, stuns me. As for Spring I saw a sure sign of one today, even though we still have three feet of snow on the ground. A COON was hanging on my bird feeder, eating bird seed. He is out from hibernation, and as I looked, I said WHAT? because the cold and snow just did not add up with a coon coming out already. Hmmmm …. Now that I will take as YAY Spring is just around the corner and I will see those gorgeous early bulbs I planted. *preparing to buy Liquid Fence to ward off the critters!*

  3. We have snowdrops and daffodils and winter jasmine in bloom here in North Carolina. but snow is atlas forecast for tonight, so we might finally have some winter. These are beautiful photos, Calee!

  6. Definitely not winter!

    • Nope! Feels more like we’re having the longest autumn ever.. Now just waiting for spring. πŸ™‚

  7. Thanks for the lovely peak into the future! Your image of the white teardrop flower is gorgeous. Your comment about winter is interesting – we’re having record cold, with no end in sight. This afternoon I was photographing a Red Squirrel sitting on top of a post in minus 25 degrees F wind chill.

    • Thanks Nick! Weather is crazy all over, either super cold and snowy or not cold at all.. I love the pictures you took of that squirrel, especially the one where he peeks up from the snow tunnel. πŸ™‚

  8. You’re a bit ahead of us in moving towards spring, but I hope to be able to take some flower shots too in another month or too. Unlike some parts of the United States, we are not covered in snow, but it was bitterly cold (about minus 12 C) and very windy today. Your beautiful flower shots, Camilla, help to warm me up.

    • Thanks Mike! I look forward to your upcoming flower shots, but I must admit I’m quite thrilled over your bird shots πŸ˜€

  9. Beautiful. I love the water droplets too. We didn’t have a real winter either.

    • Thanks, dear Wendy! πŸ™‚ No real winter, but let’s hope for a real spring.

  10. Oh wow Calee, these are wonderful. Is Spring really out there – my daffodil buds (5 as of today) are ready to open (32 degrees on Tuesday might kill them – oh no!).

    February 16, 2015 at 3:14 AM

    • Thanks a lot, Mary! I do hope your buds make it, tell them to just hold out a few more weeks…. πŸ™‚

      • Have a wonderful break!

  11. So beautiful Camilla. It has been a very strange winter here so far too. Very mild indeed!

    • Thanks Adrian! Weather’s crazy, today we actually had four seasons in one day..! πŸ™‚ I wonder what season we’ll have tomorrow.. πŸ˜‰

      February 21, 2015 at 7:14 PM

    In this neck of the woods things are definitely different weather-wise: yesterday the temperature was -4F/-20C and windy – pretty chilly! πŸ˜‰
