From My Heart To Yours

2018-11-06 11.42.14 - CopyOh no, how time has gone by since my last post.

I kind of got side tracked by posting on Facebook. How could I, you may ask? Well it seems to be much easier to do that with my phone.

Yes, I know I can do blog-posts on the phone too. But it seem to be a little more tedious for someone like me that is not so computer oriented. LOL 2018-11-20 15.36.43 - Copy

 

 

 

So we all had the Fall season come and go… see some of my pictures from the fall.

Well guess what, we had minus 17 on November 22nd. A brisk walk through the local park that morning and again at night, so beautiful.

Then some more snow here and there…gurr with rain right after that.

All snow gone again. What? You say we are in winter?  Normal we would be into deep winter with Christmas just past, Guess again!!! Yesterday was December 28th. A usually very cold winter day here in Canada. ..BUT not yesterday!

Believe it or not we had a temperature of “+11” .Yes plus 11 degrees. People where walking around in short sleeves… (not me).Don’t think it have seen that before in my 34 years here in Canada!

Perfect Water Droplets

img_4971Probably one of the last nice hot summer evenings outside in my backyard with +28.

Cut the grass put water on some plants. Even racked up the dead grass.

So now enjoying a peaceful evening with a glass of wine and looking for some great pictures.

I have one for sure I absolutely love water droplets on plants. But what about mushrooms growing on a log? Or even a plant we call clover that we don’t need I. The grass or garden. Beautiful too

Have a wonderful evening

Water Droplets

IMG_6411There is something magical hanging on the branch.

I just love when I see water droplets on branches.

Today they are hanging on all kinds of branches  in our backyard.

Ich finde es immer sehr schoen Wasser Tropfen an den Zweigen hängen zu sehen…

Heute gibt es viel davon in unserem Garten.

Glistening Sunshine in the Big Icy Mess

IMG_0557 IMG_0645 An Icy Mess we could say. So many people without power and this after 5 days of frizzing cold temperature. Now overnight a good 5 to 10cm layer of snow on top of all this ice. More weight on the branches too…

I remember as a kid growing up back home. Our home is close to a train track and sometimes when we had an ice store and the train power lines where covers in ice. As a kid it was quite something to see the train go by then and all the sparks and crackles from the ice as the train went by. memories to keep….

Well yesterday morning the temperature measured MINUS 22 burrrrr!!!. Kind of unbelievable how solid the ice is on all the branches. But if you could feel the cold….

However this is a really nice time to go out and take lots of pictures. One  does not get to have that many opportunities for this kind of sparkle and sunshine…unless you live in the Alps in Switzerland. Breathtaking views when the sun shines into the ice and snow.

Ein eisige Wueste könnten wir sagen. So viele Menschen ohne Strom, und dies nach 5 Tagen  ice kalten Temperaturen. Über Nacht dazu noch gute 5 bis 10 cm Neuschnee. Mehr Gewicht auf die Zweige …

Ich erinnere mich an meine Kinderzeit zuhause. Mein Elternhause  ist in der Nähe einer Bahnstrecke und manchmal, wenn wir ein Eisregen hatten und die Stromleitungen der Bahn mit Eis bedeck waren. Wenn der Zug vorbei fuhr….das Funkeln uns Sparkel der Leitungen… Als Kind war es schon etwas zum sehen – Erinnerungen zum  Behalten ….

Nun, gestern Morgen die Temperaturn waren bei uns  MINUS 22 Burrrrr!. Unglaublich, wie dick das Eis ist auf alle Bäumen. Aber wenn man die Kälte fühlen ….dan ist es kein Wunder.

Doch trotzdem ist es eine schöne Zeit für Fotos. All das Glitzern  wenn die Sonne in all das Eis scheint…So etwas sieht man nicht viel bei uns. Ja in den Alpen in der Schweiz kommt das schon öfters vor.  Atemberaubende Ausblickten, wenn die Sonne in das Eis und und Schnee scheint.

Growing Icicles – My New Curtains

What a treat this is for the kids…Young and Old.

  Their itching to knock the Icicles off….but now they are so big and getting longer every day that even the older kids are fascinated seeing this.  I wonder how long I am able to keep them there before someone can’t resist.  Smile…..perhaps the Spring will knock it of for me.  But that for sure is not today with this winter storm we are having here since last night.

Was für eine “Jucken” ist dies für … Jung und Alt.

   Es juckt die Eiszapfen abschlagen …. aber jetzt sind sie so groß und wachsen immer mehr jeden Tag, dass auch die älteren Kinder fasziniert sind  diese zu sehen. Ich frage mich doch, wie lange ich in der Lage bin die Eiszapfen unberührt dort zu halten, bis jemand es nicht widerstehen kann und sie abschlägt. Lächeln ….. vielleicht wird der Frühling diese von mir nehemen.  Aber das ist sicher nicht Heute mit diesem Wintersturm den wir seit der letzten Nacht haben.

Fiery Clouds in the Sky

I like taking pictures of clouds and all kids of bugs amongst lots of other fun things.  But one day in September the clouds and the sun gave me this fiery picture.  Yes I did play with my camera setting too.

 

I love taking pictures and just see what will be the results of the different settings. I thought it was kind of fun with the both homes and chimneys framing the sky.

Mir gefallen die Bilder von Wolken sowie auch von Käfern und Insekten,  unterallen auch von vielen anderen lustigen Dingen. Doch eines Tages im  September zeigten die Wolken und die Sonne  ein schönes feuriges Bild.  Ja, ich habe mit meiner Kamera etwas mit geholfen.  Habe mit der  Einstellung herumgespielt.

Mir hat das besonders gut gefallen wie der Himmel eingeramt wurde mit den zwei Häuser und die Kamine.
