Sunlit Sunday





Happy February to you!

It's time for Sunlit Sunday once again.

This Saturday morning, the first day of February, I went out to get the newspaper from the mailbox and had my camera around my neck.  I took over 30 photos of the beauty on this bright sunny morning.  These are two of them and I'll share more with you another day soon. 


Isn't that sky beautiful?  It's so blue.  I love the dark tree branches against it and the snow and the shadows as well.


The Mactacaddy Groundhog sign from January 31, 2013.

I took this photo last year.
It was a beautiful day that day last year but on Groundhog Day there was a big snowstorm and a blizzard on the 3rd as well.  The groundhog did not see his shadow last year and we still had 8 weeks of winter!  That's typical for us.  :)

It's supposed to snow a bit tonight followed by some rain tomorrow.  It will be a messy and slippery Sunday morning again.
I'm guessing the groundhog won't be seeing his shadow but, it won't matter because spring is usually late here anyway.




And I had to share my tulips again.  The sun was shining in the dining room window across to the living room and lit up the coffee table.  I am so enjoying the longer sunshine hours in our days now. Aren't you?


And the bouquet on the dining table with the living room in the background.  I love sunlight!

I hope you will join us at Karen's lovely blog,
"My Little Home and Garden", for Sunlit Sunday.
Thank you for hosting this lovely party each week in the winter!


Wishing you a blessed Sunday.

Pamela

  2. Such beautiful blue skies make the cold winter days more bearable, I think. Our temperatures are supposed to drop this next week, but the sun will shine!
    Groundhog Day - wonder what he'll find tomorrow? Happy Sunday, Pamela.

  4. Hi Pamela, Love your tulips! Your winter snow shots are lovely too. Snow does present us with opportunities for taking beautiful photos, or, as you say, for playing with my camera!

  5. Pam, it's my pleasure to host Sunlit Sunday and I always look forward to your posts. I can see that you had the same blue sky I enjoyed earlier this week. What a treat it must be to walk out your door and see those spectacular views of fields, trees and hills in the distance.

    Things are looking splendid inside too! I imagine a few tulips will find their way into my home at some point this month; yours are lasting very well and look beautiful in the sunshine.

    Enjoy your Sunday!

  7. Oh Pamela, breathtaking for sure!!! What beautiful photos and the tulips too! We finally got some snow but have had much colder temps than normal. I'm nervous about what February might bring.

  8. Oh what a beautiful day indeed! I love your tulips! I almost bought some today at the grocery store, but they would have had to sit in the car for over an hour while we did other chores. There was a blizzard, and they would have froze!

  10. Dramatic photos of your neck of the woods, brightened by that glorious blue sky, Pamela! Yes, the sunlight, both outdoors and in, is always soothing and your dining room looks so very warm and inviting. Enjoy your week ahead!

  11. Your tulips are beautiful Pamela, so you are quite right to share them again!! The blue sky reflected on the snow is lovely, so I can quite see why you took so many photos of it, although I am not sure that I would have stayed out in the cold for long enough to have done that, you are a hardier soul than me!! Hope that you have a great week. xx

  12. I doubt that Wiarton Willie will see his shadow today but it's still dark out so I don't know that for sure. I hoe the sun does come out as it snowed overnight and there's nothing more beautiful thn pristine snow. :))

  13. Yesterday our weather said snow in the morning rain in the afternoon / this morning they changed it to rain in the morning, snow later. Your pictures are lovely and the tulips are gorgeous! :)

  15. Love those tulips! Your snowy shots are gorgeous -- the contrast with the snow and the beautiful blue skies and the reflections -- wonderful! I don't think it much matters if Phil sees his shadow or not. By the way things are going, I think its safe to say Spring won't be early! Shucks! Happy Sun Lit Sunday!

  16. Sparkling pristine snow is a vision I cherish - that comes from being Canadian I guess!
    Love how the tulips are illuminated Pam and I must say I'm just pleased see sunshine each day so far.

  17. Oh yes today is Groundhogs day...Wonder if he saw his shadow?? Conversation piece anyway isn't it??? smile..

    Blessings,

  21. The sun is so pretty on your tulips - and so cold-looking on the fields! Stay warm and safe if you get freezing rain.

  22. Love your tulips! We've got spring in New York today and snow again tomorrow. I'm out in a few minutes to enjoy this day.

  25. Hi Pamela, over from Karen's Sunlit Sunday. Great shots here. The macro tulips is very creative. Love that type of shot. Yes I had to take my shots on Sat. and a good thing, no sunshine here in my Ky. home this Sunday. Have a great week.

  26. Pamela...such glorious snow photos! And that blue sky...what a contrast! I also love the bare tree branches against that sky...what a beautiful sight! Have a fabulous week :)

    Blessings.

  28. Absolutely breath taking, I so love the tulips and you must have taken a bunch of pics to share mabye 30 or so, you are like me, different angle,and there you go another shot for another day. We are having a fun day today. The children are out in the woods running and reminds me of deer they are. Good job you took that camera to the mail box, nice shot.
    Hugs cindy

  29. Tulips in white pitchers,,,,,one of my favorite things! Happy sunnyday to you!

  30. Pamela...such striking photos. The contrast between the earth, sky, and all things in between is lovely. The little critter up in Pennsylvania saw his shadow, but his southern counterpart here in Georgia did not. However, I am a bit skeptical ... Our weather has been too fickle this year. Snow on Tuesday and 80 degrees F today! Time will tell. Happy February! Susan

  31. Such beautiful long shadows in the first two pictures!
    And the tulips... I had too, any days ago...a breath of spring...
    I'm new at the Sunlit-party, first one have found your blog, but I like you photos. All.

  34. Love those tulip shots - so soft and pretty in the light!

  35. Pamela, I love your tulips, especially with the sun shining on them. I am glad you had your camera with you to snap the beautiful outdoor scene.
