Happy Weekend Photos

This was the sky over my city last night from up on Mount Tolmie.
For Sky Watch Friday. (taken with cell phone) It is always a gift when you get an unexpected sunset.

For Weekend Reflections and Scenic Weekend, two photos of Elk Lake.

For Black and White Weekend a shot from the bridge at Esquimalt Lagoon.

Two critters for the Saturday critters Memes.  A gosling reflecting and  Peacock from Beacon Hill Park.

The daffodils are coming out finally. For Mellow Yellow.

For Macro Monday, Foxgloves.

For Blue Monday, also flowers are for Today's Flowers, Floral Friday.

The trees are coming into blossom now.  Hopefully Spring is on the way.

  7. Your photos are so beautiful, and I love the black and white - beautiful viewed large!

  8. Love seeing the skies there, and the reflections, trees, flowers, and birds.

  9. Beautiful early spring photos Nora. I miss that season pretty much entirely since we are in Florida (and by the time we get home to Oregon daffodils, flowering trees and etc etc have all pretty much finished bloominng)... Summer all year round for us sort of, which in many ways is good (that's why we're here), but in some ways is not. No daffodils.

  10. WoW! This is a fantastic set of pictures.You have captured the beauty of nature so well.

  11. You posted gorgeous photos for all of them.

  15. I love the reflections!
