Winter in Sepia



I have very little to report these days - but winter! I am not fond of winter,
and would prefer to live constantly in spring and summer... Wishful thinking of course.


It is pretty frustrating to stay inside the most of the time. Luckily I have my books!
I just finished the 4th & final book of Elena Ferrante's Neapolitan series ❤︎
The Story of the Lost Child and I found it excellent!!


Outside Nordic walking & shovelling, shovelling, shovelling....



It has been snowing & raining for two days.
I was shovelling very early in the morning and took some photos.
Sorry, it was so dark that photos lost some sharpness...
Also the colors turned out very peculiar, so I changed them to sepia. 


I hope my humble post is ok with Amy.
And I do hope that you who live in milder climate conditions appreciate your luck!

Five on Friday

I'll add another mosaic for Maggie's
Mosaic Monday

Theme is Warm & Cold, made yesterday for Color Challenge



Hope is not lost - The Spring shall come!

  2. Each day brings the sunny warm weather a bit nearer, thank goodness. We had a tiny tiny bit of snow last night, just enough to make stripes on the roof tiles. Have a good weekend.

  4. Beautiful in sepia! Wintertime is difficult, strenunous and boring... I prefer the other seasons and wait for spring. We have a lot of snow today too, sigh!
    Have a cozy reading weekend with a purring cat

  6. Seepia antaa tosi kauniin tunnelman kuviin. Minäkään en ole erityisemmin talven ja lumen ystävä. Minusta oli kivaa, kun lämpötila talvesta huolimatta oli plussan puolella

  8. Beautiful photos! I admit to having a little of the winter blues. I'm getting tired of snow and cold. I'm itching to take a walk and see some colour! It will be quite a while yet. I am trying to stay content with books and crafting but Spring is getting closer (or I least that's what I'm telling myself!)

    Happy Five on Friday

  10. Deine Bilder in Sepia sehen sehr schön aus. Aber gut das du deine Tulpen in ihren Farben gelassen hast. Ein Farbtupfer in der kalten Jahreszeit.

  15. An inspiration to go for sepia. The photos are beautiful. Love the old man ornament. Is it pottery and does he have a name? He looks friendly! Wishing you a good weekend!

  16. No onpa hienoja kuvia! Luontokuvista tulisi ihania tauluja tai vaikka satukirjan kuvitusta. Seepia toimii upeasti näissä.
    Tunnelmallista viikonloppua!

  17. I wouldn't mind a little snow here on our island, but it's unlikely now. Your sepia photos are very beautiful, with an air of mystery about them. Stay cozy!

  21. What a winter wonderland of sepia loveliness, your mosaic is beautiful and the tulips just pop right out at you. The final, extra special colourful, mosaic is simply gorgeous. Stay warm inside with a good book and a hot drink, before you know it spring will be here and there'll be no time for reading then.
    Happy MM.

  23. Beautiful images and I love the color of the tulips popping out of the sepia tones of the mosaic. Reading is such a good past time especially when it's cold outdoors!

  24. I live in the southwest part of Missouri, so all the horrible weather bypassed us. One weather system swoops down around Kansas City and another swoops up around St. Louis. We're on a plateau in between, so our weather is totally different from the rest of the state. No ice at my house, but gray, foggy, drippy weather.

    I find beauty in the structure of the bare limbs of the trees - rather like lace - but like you, would prefer the colors of spring. Fortunately, some of our grass is still green, and I've planted a few evergreens and hollys to maintain a little green in my life.

    Time passes quickly. We'll be back to sunshine and flowers before you know it. Music helps to lift my spirits on gray days. Try a something a little upbeat.
