Even the shrubs and the bees think it's spring!
Fast forward FOUR days. The temp yesterday was .......73F !!! No ice, no coats, not even a jacket! Rumor has it some of my friends even turned the AC on. I will admit it made for a gloriously sunny, breezy day for a long walk or just sitting outside and getting some much needed fresh air after weeks of rain, drizzle and gray skies. Got cabin fever? Come on down to Birmingham. You're welcome here. I'll leave the light on.

I love the colore of yellow in flowers. yes, i love footbal, but most watching it! :D
I am catching up again after the wonderful but endless lunches and dinners. It is so good wishing merry Christmas to all friends and family in the countryside in Wine-paradise, because you start tasting wine and other pure liquids (whatever fits in a glass)to toast to the meaning of Christmas and to a Happy New Year. Then we brought the last relatives back to the Airport this morning at 5.30 and from today on I will be visiting my blogging friends' ohotos again! You should be so lucky to have this Spring weather again. minus 6 Celsius over here, but I like it.
I love the effects of the Condensation photo!!
... from the ice stalactites to 73ºF?!?! Wow! Enjoy it! :-)
A beautiful series of nice images again :)
Welcome home Blognote! Hope this means a new photo from Arona this morning. I love "whatever fits in a glass!"
You're not serving rib roast, are you?
73 degrees after the big freeze? That is a big temperature swing. Stay warm, er cool, er what is it you wish to remain? ;)
DL, I don't know! Maybe I just need to be grateful I haven 't lost power like the folks in the NW and just enjoy Mother Nature's mood swings.
Albert, Actually a fine roast of yak is in the oven today. Will you ask Mister Earl to bring the yams?
Oh, Virginia, you're makin' me hungry.
Glad you removed the other lot, V.
When you southern folk talk food, you simply lose me - but I do like the way the sound flows from your voices into the air.
HA, Julie we don't eat yak although we do eat some regional things others might turn their noses up at! The yak discussion is from altadenhiker's hilarious blog. And for the record, I don't like yams or sweet potatoes.
I like the forsythia in bloom and used to raise it here. I still have three miniature forsythia bushes but they are so small it is hard to imagine them flowering -- which they do in season.
And I read the comments and come to the conclusion that you all are talking meat or meals and while i never tasted Yak or Camel I have had Pig and Cow but no dog or horse. I like chicken necks too.
THis looks like forsythia but I am pretty sure it's not. I have forsythia in my yard and this one has very long trailing stems but the same pretty yellow flowers. Mother Nature hasn't fooled the forsythia into blooming just yet! HA The "Yak" yak on altadenahiker's blog the other day had me in tears I laughed so hard.
Yeah Abe, I don't eat horse either or altadenahiker would throw me out on my cute little ear. Virg, I'm there. Let's give 'em something to yak about.
The "yak" yak went from your place to mine. How did that happen ? Help me stop!!!!
Hmmm! Does this have anything to do with the depleting ozone layer?
Your weather is a little schizoid. At least we have consistent rain. Maybe that's shy I'm not getting blue skies by Willie but plinky plonky raindrop sounds.
Quelle virus, mon amie! I'll make it stop; the yak stops here. And maintenant. Albert sends his love.
By the way, near as I can tell, "yak" en francais is "yak."
Albert, Get her to send you to Alabama. The pen awaits.
how odd and upsetting? 73??!
Honestly, if we were told about such temperature swings 10 years ago we'd never believe it.
happy holidays virginia!
