Icy fruits ..

Yesterday's snowfall was light enough to just make things pretty ... not like the three or four or eight feet of snow falling in the US Northeast region as part of Storm Juno 2015.

It's our lava table (a fond reminder of our life in Sicily) shows off the dusting ... it really does seem like granulated sugar has been sprinkled over it ...

Love the granada (pomegranate) ~

Boston Blizzard 2015

Comments from the posting:

Published on Jan 28, 2015
A time lapse of the 2015 Boston blizzard from 3 pm on January 26 to 8 am on January 28, 2015.

The video was created from 5,000 images, recorded at 30-second intervals on a GoPro.

The snowlapse was recorded on a roof in Back Bay Boston. For reference, the tall building on the far left is the Hancock Tower. The building in the distance in the middle is the Westin Copley Plaza and the illuminated "The" is from the roof of The Lenox Hotel.

Impressive to watch the snow level rise as time goes by ... sometimes I wished I lived in the in New England or the Mid-Atlantic states, just because of all the wonderful historical and cultural opportunities ... then I see something like this and think... maybe I'd rather not.   Holly

Spring is coming ....

It may be snowy here ... but my tulips are starting to peek out of the ground ... Spring is on its way!

Do you see any signs of the coming season in your corner of the world?

It's snowy ... it's not ... it's .. winter in Germany

 Started snowing a few days ago ...

Then it cleared up and the snow all melted away ... but ....

Yesterday ... it snowed again... a little

Well .. since it was only a little, it looked pretty and didn't take long to clear the walkways in compliance with German law ...

Our sun from Thailand sports a new hair style in his place under the tree....

A light dusting on one of our potted plants on the terrace ..... while the needles of our rosemary bush on the slope caught some flakes as well...
Definitely winter in southern Germany!

What is it like in your corner of the world?

Say what?

 DH and I saw these at the Deutsches Technical Museum in Munich recently ... 
just have to wonder who would use "Dummy" guides for these ...
