Sunshine Came Softly . . .

What a pleasure to see shadows again!
And to hear the sweet dripping of icicles!
And to read that the temperature could reach the forties this weekend!

Oh joy!

I had to smile at the title of your post. I'm a big Donovan fan and it got me thinking, not too long before we can sing his Summer Day Reflection Song.

We were happy to see 'snippets' of sunshine peek through. It was a long time coming!

I love your comment "to hear the sweet dripping of icicles." How sweet the sound. Glad to hear things are improving and the sun is out.

Glad to see a wee bit of sunshine here yesterday too, but it's supposed to begin to snow again this weekend. These are beautiful pictures. I especially like the one of icicles! Have a grand day! Cathy

If the sun didn't come out when it did I was going to buy grow lights and surround myself with artificial sunlight...haha.

I know melting is your favorite word of the day! Believe it or not, today is our first day to get in the 40s too even though we got no snow! It's 18 right now. Brrrrrr! XOXO

Louise said...

Enjoy your melt. It will be exciting to see the earth appear again.

Jill said...

It is nice to see the sun! I am just glad that the wind has calmed down. Have fun in the sun!

The deck photo with the shadows is so inviting!

Oh joy is right!

Enjoy those warmer temperatures and the drip, drip of the icicles.

We have to soak up all the sun we can!

Kath said...

Hallelujah! The sun is out here too!! I even got sky-blue-pink photos at sunrise.
And as I walked home down the driveway a doe gave me the evil eye, stamped, and fled. Clearly I was in the wrong for being OUT when she was.

It was four degrees when we got up this morning. The sun has never been more welcome here than it is today!

Yes, but looking at your photos, winter is truly beautiful. Just look at those trees!

Friko said...

and the days are definitely getting longer! By about 5 minutes per day.

I wish it would speed itself up a little : )

How wonderful to see the sun coming out again. I love the deck photo. Maybe everything will melt soon.
