to tweak our imaginations.
Go here to see more:


  1. I live far away from my family and its peculiar to hear them speak of snow and winter when its 70 some degrees outside.

  2. Really out of balance, forest fires on the north Oregon coast this winter. Seriously out of whack.

  3. I just read that scientists are claiming California hasn't been this dry in 500 years. Wow!

  4. Cold shivers in many parts of the US and searing heat in Australia! While not a surprise but the intensity this time is a shocker! Nicely Kathe!


  5. Yep, our afternoons are spring indeed. Must be that global warming thing.

    Have a fabulous day. Big hugs honey. ♥♥♥

  6. We're supposed to care for our home, and we need to figure out how to do it, and quickly, before we destroy ourselves.

  7. Wonderful words, put me right there. What a perfect photo too.

  8. Global warming...Out of balance for sure.

  9. So timely ... glad you posted this one! (actually all of them)

  10. Pretty crazy, isn't it? And yes, we are dry as a bone here…praying for rain.


  11. Wild extremes, well expressed.

  12. It's a tug of weird-weather-war indeed!

  13. Wow now that's weather in it's extremes. I hope you get rain soon. We are accustomed to periods of drought here in Australia & it's not fun, not fun at all. Especially for the farmers!

  14. This land is your land...this land is my land...(singing)...


I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page.
