welcome to the month of March




Friday afternoon at 4:00 pm

Well, it's gone.
February, 2014 that is…..
short on days, long on snow storms and cold temperatures.

These photos were taken on Friday, late in the afternoon as the sun was lowering in the sky.  It was sunny, cold and windy.  One almost needs sunglasses when looking outside at the snowy landscape with the brilliant sun shining on it.

There were some interesting cloud formations before the sun set.
Some might just see clouds but I see beauty.


All in all, February was a great month as we were away for 2 weeks of it so we missed the worst of the bad weather.  :-)


Environment Canada is calling for a colder than normal March and we'll get lots more snow as well but, at least the days will be getting longer and the sun will be stronger, and spring will officially arrive in 20 days.  Something to look forward to.  :-)



And that was it….the sun setting on the last day of February.

Welcome to the month of March! 
What will be…will be.  

Maybe even these.

I am linking with Karen at My Little Home and Garden for
Sunlit Sunday.   I hope you will join us.

Have a great weekend!

Blessings,

Pamela


P.S.  It's -22 Celsius this morning but the sun is shining.
Wear sunglasses and warm clothes.

  3. GREAT job on your sky photos! So beautiful. We have minus 23 degrees (F.) this morning - supposed to be wind too, so we'll be here in our warm home.

    Have a wonderful day!

  5. Any spring that I'll be enjoying will be at other blogs because there's none of it where I am. I must create some artificial spring for the indoors just because I'm needing a good dose of it. Oh that final sunset of February was a corker! Courage! Onward! It's the only way to get to real spring. =D

  6. Stunning cloud formations, Pamela. It's kind of funny to think that you escaped the cold....in the middle of Alberta! I'm all for spring - then summer! It's cooler here again, but nothing like what you have. The light in the clouds is really amazing.

  7. Lovely photos of the clouds, Pam. The last one is stunning. No sun here today. We are getting some snow but the worst of the snow is supposed to go south of us. It's supposed to be cold here all week.
    Have a great weekend! Enjoy the sunshine

  9. Yes, Environment Canada is indeed calling for a colder than normal March. But you are right that the days are significantly longer now and that makes me smile. Lovely skies you're having!

  10. This is beautiful with the sun and snow. Let's hope that the weather improves as March warms up. I am bringing spring into my house with huge amounts of tulips and daffodils, at least my eyes and heart are warm xx

  11. I am enjoying all of your pictures with the different cloud formations. I have always loved to look upward and try to see objects made out of clouds. (I do it in the pool in the summer...on a raft.) It can be fascinating.

  12. Fabulous cloud captures! Such beautiful formations and lovely hints of colour! Cold and snowy here in Ontario for the next couple of weeks too.

  13. Looks lovely ... from behind a window in a warm room (or on my screen, down south). -22C - ouch ! Perhaps March will come in like a lion and go out like a lamb (there's always hope).

    Hope your ear has gotten better. Enjoy the rest of the weekend, and stay warm !

  14. Well, Pamela, our March beginning with a snow fall warning. We rarely get snow storms in March but this year we will pay for the beautiful weather we had in Jan. It's -1 C and snowing. The cloud pictures are definitely beautiful!

  15. Gorgeous photos . . .Love the final sunset . . .

  16. Thanks Pamela---enjoyed your photos and thoughts !

  17. What glorious images of cloud formations, Pamela! The first photo is especially captivating; what a spectacle! Just when I was reading along, enjoying your narrative, I was suddenly struck with anxiety: what??? MORE snow and cold for March?!! But, it's supposed to be spring, and that's why I chose to come home this month! I hope that THIS time, Environment Canada is mistaken!;))

    Have a wonderful week ahead and hope you're feeling better. (My cold is lingering...still).

  19. It's been a while since I've been in that sort of weather but the good news is that it won't last forever! Love your photos. They certainly show a variety of skies.

  20. We received more snow the past couple of days, but that may be it for the year, I'm hoping. Beautiful snowy shots and cloud formations Pam. xo

  21. Your pictures of the clouds are just breathtaking! :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Stunning pictures. You captured some real beauty in the skies. I'm not happy to read that March is expected to be unusually cold in Canada because that means it will be that way here too. Can't wait for spring!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I agree with you, Pam. There is plenty of beauty to be found in those sweeping, swirling clouds. The sky is set off all the more by the trees and then, the Grand Finale with the intense sunlight. Looking out my window at the fresh fallen snow, it's hard to believe that March has arrived.

    Have a lovely Sunlit Sunday.

  25. The skies are magnificent but oh that biting cold, you were lucky to get away for at least a while dear! LOVE the sunset photo, goodbye February - and yes, there is hope for a Spring on the horizon.

    Stay snuggled and warm - glad you got back home safely.
    Hugs - Mary

  37. Great sky shots...and snow shots. Welcome March. March started with snow back home (western Canada) as well...but we are down south right now looking for sunshine.

  38. Pamela, fantastic clouds. I find clouds fascinating and beautiful. It's March and we are expecting snow tomorrow! At least one person in our family is very happy with that prediction: our son. Stay warm.

  39. Lovely photos Pamela. Wonderful! I actually have one crocus up...a volunteer at the edge of a bad filled with bark. Nor sure where it came from, but blooming where it landed with panache!

  40. Hello Pamela, what dramatic skies you have there, well worth the cold temps. So cooler then normal March...brrrrr..I'm looking forward to seeing some spring action soon, please!

    The hydrangea is "boring pink, florist variety" in other words, it was planted here before we bought the house, I am pretty sure it's just a basic one. SInce I moved it out back into a better spot, it's flourished and put out so many more blossoms. It's now very happy.

  41. I do hope March is better for you in terms of weather. Our daughter left yesterday for a 10 day college tour to recruit summer interns for her company. It is raining in her first stop, Seattle, and it looks like she will have rain and snow everywhere she goes.

  42. Such gorgeous skies, Pamela! You are such a wonderful photographer!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)
