a final Sunlit Sunday






This is the last Sunday to participate in Sunlit Sunday, a wonderful meme hosted by Karen at "My Little Home and Garden" blog.
She started the meme a couple years ago as a way for us to share what brings sunshine into our lives through the long winter months from January to March.  It's been fun to join in these past 3 months.  
The presumption is that spring and nice weather will bring even more sunshine into our lives starting in April.  Some of us in Canada are hoping that is true after the very snowy and cold winter we've had.  We are really hoping for more springlike weather here.



I bought this beautiful mixed bouquet of tulips last  Tuesday and they are still going strong.



This past week we've had a pair of purple finches at the feeders.



Dining with the doves on the table after Wednesday's snowstorm.

Saturday was beautiful here.  Sunshine, a mild +8C, that made snow go down and water flow.   We walked the dogs and chopped ice from the driveway.  Murray repaired the snowblower to be ready for Sunday.
 Sunday there won't be any sun shining here.  We are under a severe storm watch for snow, ice pellets and freezing rain....a lot of freezing rain....it won't be nice.  So, I'm glad for this meme that brings 'sunlight' into my computer to look at on a stormy Sunday afternoon.  {hopefully the power will stay on!}  I hope you will join us for this last Sunlit Sunday.  Thank you Karen!  

And I wish you a blessed Sunday no matter the weather.

Pamela

  7. You sure been hit hard with storms this Winter, Pamela.
    So glad you had a bit of a reprieve with sunshine and flowers today.
    Hopefully you'll have a wonderful summer to make up for this long, hard Winter.

  8. It'll be a bit of a spring dance I am thinking...this warm one day and wintry storm the next. One thing I do know...the thaw must be gradual or we're going to be in a world of trouble. Another Sunday at home while John braves the weather and I don't.

    You're sharing such springy tulip photos that are very cheering. Lovely bouquet that has held up very well! Are you using pennies in the water or anything?

  9. Oh my, it isn't letting up is it! We were treated with warming sunshine and more for tomorrow. What a treat!
    Love your colorful tulips. I like the vase too . . .
    Be safe tomorrow . . .

  10. Sorry to hear about the impending storm. That bouquet of tulips is beautiful. Hope you get sunny weather soon. Maybe someone else will pick up the baton on the meme?

  11. Stay warm, Pamela. You really have had a terrible winter in your part of the country, but it can't last much longer. Your tulips are beautiful.

  12. Your tulips are beautifully bright and cheery. Such vibrant color helps to take your mind off what's outside, I hope. Hope you get some relief from all this cold weather soon. Stay cozy.

  13. Hi Pamela, you are right to make sure your house is full of beautiful colors and spring flowers. I hope your power will not be interrupted by the severe weather. Stay warm, read garden catalogs, and plan your garden.

  14. Ohhh so beautiful - I go back and forth between wanting a bouquet of tulips of all one color - and wanting mixed colors - after seeing yours I am on the mixed colors side. And I love your vase. Wonderful birds too - hope your storm isn't too bad.

  15. What a wonderful picture of your tulips.. such bright colours for this last Sunlit Sunday. I have enjoyed seeing what you bring to brighten up the winter each week... I hope the storm you are expecting isn't that bad and that spring and summer comes quickly.

  16. Love that cheery bowl of bright tulips Pam.
    One thing is certain Spring will arrive - eventually.
    Very soon the storms, ice and cold will be a thing of the past - hang in there.
    Hugs

  17. Beautiful tulips ! They certainly make a splash! Very foggy and damp here while the southern half of the country is in sunshine. Grrr!

  18. Cute dining with doves. My table has been full of seeds as well, I'm trying to fill them up before the next storm hits, today I believe. Oh Pam, everyone is so exhausted from all this it is hard to pull yourself from a warm bed in the mornings. Sunlit Sunday was something for me to look forward to come the end of the week, I'll continue to look for the sun, lol.

  19. Love the mixed tulips ... such lovely color and finches! Lucky girl! Stay warm! Happy Sunday!

  20. Yes, indeed. You nailed the presumption on the head, Pam. The reality is somewhat different, isn't it! Here it is, the end of March, and you're expecting another storm, right after a warm day. Life in Canada can be rather unpredictable. Stay cozy, make tea, and curl up with your laptop today (assuming the power grid cooperates).

    You've been such a wonderful supporter of Sunlit Sunday, whether with snow covered fields, homey scenes, or colourful flowers. It's your personality that shines most brightly. Thank you.

    -Karen

  22. Beautiful tulips- I like the variety of color! We've had more and more sunlit days lately which have made it seem so much more tolerable to still be stuck in a white landscape! Your predicted weather sounds like a bummer, let's hope it won't be as bad as they predict!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I sure hope the storm is not as bad as predicted! You have so many sweet birds and I love your beautiful tulips! Have a good day my friend! Sweet hugs, Diane

  32. I am wondering how much snow you got Pamela. I actually heard some birds singing the other morning which gave me hope and then this morning.... bam.... wind howling, snow blowing.... we were left with quite a bit of snow. 15cm? at least. I am hoping this is the last time we have to pull the snowblower out.... hoping. :)

  33. Your bouquet of mixed tulips is very pretty, I love all the different colors. The Purple Finches are cute, I've never seen one. So sorry about your long, hard winter. Hope you've been enjoying people's sunlit shots today.

  36. Well I certainly hope that your snow goes away, most of ours is gone, can yours be far away from finally leaving for the year.

  37. Your tulips are lovely.

    I do hope the snow is gone soon, but I see people posting about more snow storms.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh I love your tulips Pamela. LOve them in different colors, so nice.Have a nice week!

  39. Hi Pam,
    I was just thinking about you as I was watching The Weather Network. I am so sick of snow and freezing rain and high winds! Will spring ever show up here in Atlantic Canada? Another snow storm overnight and into tomorrow for us.
    Your tulips are lovely and bring such a bright spot of colour into one's home this time of year. I had three purple finches on my feeder this morning. How pretty they are with all that white stuff in the background! I am so thankful for the pretty birdies that spend time at the feeder. They bring so much joy into my life on these drab snowy days. Wishing you a safe and lovely week with spring-like weather on the way.

    Hugs,
    Sandi
