Gorgeous shots, Snaggle. The broken branch shot is fabulous!

And your African Violets look so lovely and don't they just radiate happiness?

Is that flower setting in the snow?? It just looks cold there. and I thought the 14* here was bad.

ArtsWeb, Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed my handiwork- It's actually two, layered, custom effects in that example.

Talon, Thankyou. I had to get out there to spy that pristine snow. the branches look like friends talking, I think!
The violets are great to see blooming vibrantly again after 6 years! The two new ones aren't doing as well.

Ellis, That was a bit of a trick getting a pic against the snow- I had the window open (to feed the squirrels,) n put a sheet of white paper under the pot on the windowsill, then angled the cam to get the snow downstairs into the background. Sometimes photography is a bit of set-up work- I waited all week for this snow just for that! I think you got more snow than we did on the Cape!

Lynn, To my eye they are more purple than the blue seen in pics of it. Thanks

JanF, Had I known they'd be there I would've brought them bread. They eat certain seaweed plants. Thanks. Non boo-hoo, Ce c'est bon! ├ętrange

Love all the snowy shots. It sure looks cold there!

I wish I could join in with the French! :D

LLcoolJ, thanks. We didn't get over 20F (-6.6 C) today- then there's the windchill so felt like 5F! I still have unmelted ice stuck to the top of Little Truck from 3 days ago. I'm putting my work lunch in a cooler without ice in it- so it doesn't freeze before I eat it!
Oo la la non grande (No big woop-)
