Sunshine, no coats, soaring mercury, no boots, flowers in bloom, no hats and gloves, monarch butterflies gathering nectar, no twice daily application of body lotion to stop the dry skin itching. Yes, it’s the time of year when I whine about the weather and dream of summertime. Ahhhh, summertime – my favourite time of the year :).
As I haven’t really had any recent photo ops (maybe because I hate with a passion going out in the cold), I decided to dig into the archives and find one of my best warm weather photos to share with you. Just looking at this butterfly perched on an echinacea flower makes me forget the yucky white stuff outside the window. Hopefully the weatherman is right and we will be into the double digits by the weekend. I know it won’t last long and it’s still a long time until Spring in my part of the world, but some above normal temperatures and some sunshine would be very good for my soul right about now.
thx Cindy, needed that ❤
Glad I could help 🙂
That’s an incredible shot Cindy. Love it. Oh and I agree with you…I hate the cold too. It was beautiful today and hopefully will remain like this all weekend.
Thanks so much Edith :). I knew I couldn’t be the only one that feels this way LOL!!
as someone said–spring is only nine weeks away
That’s what I like about you – you’re so positive :).
LOL – just like me!!
Thanks AJ 🙂
Beautiful photo! You should come down to Australia. It’s pretty hot down here at the moment! 🙂
Don’t tempt me – I might be on the next flight LOL!! Thanks Jacqui :).
You don’t have to go as far as Australia. Even if there are few flowers here in central Texas now, recent afternoon temperatures in Austin have gone north of 60*. As the old television show used to say: Come on down!
60 sounds wonderful!! I have never been to Texas and would love to visit there someday, especially after seeing your beautiful photos :).
Great shot! But it’s only January. I’m worried about your sanity if you are already dreaming of summer. I would invite you to London, but it isn’t that warm here either. No snow at least.
Don’t worry TBM, I start dreaming about summer as soon as the temperature drops below 70 degrees, but I always survive the winter. I just don’t like it :).
Beautiful photo Cindy, but you bite your tongue young lady! I am nowhere near done in the snow covered mountains yet!!! 😀
Young lady!!! Oooh, you’re really getting brownie points today Jeff :). Sorry my friend – snow covered mountains does sound lovely, but I still prefer a hot sunny day.
Not me! Sunrise is too early, sunset too late, and the bugs are just a pain. Though living on a lake, summer does have its place 😀
Ohhh, you are so lucky to live on a lake. I would give anything for that!!
Ohhh wow, that’s awesome!
I want summer! *sobs*
Very nice pic!
Thanks – I’m glad you enjoyed it :).
Well I’m hoping via this comment, some of this east coast mid 60’s weather reaches there in a hurry! Zoooooom💨💨
‘Til then, I’m loving that photo! 🙂
Thank you so much, and yesterday was actually quite pleasant and I got out shooting with my camera a bit. It was so nice to go out without boots and a winter coat :).
Ooooooohhh,,this makes me think that there is hope that spring will come again 🙂
Hopefully sooner rather than later 🙂
Me too – dreaming of summer – dreaming of a sunny beach too – and a lot of basking. 🙂
Ok, how about we both jump on a plane right now and meet at a hot, sunny beach on a tropical island?? Where would you like to go? I’m not picky :).
Marco Island, Florida? Hawaii? St. Thomas? Oh, how the sun beckons! 🙂
Sigh………Oh to feel the sunshine soaking through to my bones :).
fantastic picture ! very nice job !
Thank you so much and welcome to my blog :).
