Weekly Winners, Short and Sweet



Weekly Winners is a weekly photo meme hosted by Lotus and includes some amazing photography. Sundays in My City, hosted by Unknown Mami is a collection of photos from communities all over the world. Both are great ways to start your week.

This week, after days of gorgeous weather, it suddenly began to snow again; we got four inches overnight. Needless to say, the budding blooms were taken by surprise...


Fortunately, I know (with certainty) that in just a matter of weeks, this Adirondack Crabapple tree at school...

will turn into this....


Can't talk now; I'm recuperating from Kendall's birthday sleepover. Hope you had a restful weekend :)

Visit Unknown Mami and Lotus for more pics from around the blogosphere.

  5. It seems that mother nature has surprised the entire country. We went from near 90 to the 50's in the day and 40's at night.
