Day & Night

These photos were taken earlier this week on a beautiful sunny day after the snow melted. 
The evening photos were taken last week between snowstorms. 















 




These lion photos are from my archives.  I just love the face on the male lion. Most of the photos of lions I have are from the wild in Kenya but these ones were taken at an animal zoo.



Thank you for stopping by.

  2. It’s interesting that there is still a Worl Poetry Day. Hardly anyone I know reads poetry any more. And that is a shame.

  6. You live in such a beautiful area, Penny. Love being able to see the mountains in the background. I live in the mountains as well. I have a feeling that some of the photos are from when you were out and about when your cousin visited. Just lovely!

    1. Hi Dianna, yes, my cousin and I did travel out and about to many of these places. We had a wonderful visit though very brief. She wants to come again and stay longer. I totally forgot to mention it because I was so late with posting for this week's memes. You have a great memory :-)

  13. I recognized the Y's Books signage on the street scene you captured. I have never been there but will get my friend to take me the next time I am in Vancouver. It is lovely to see familiar sites and street scenes. Great shots! It is really nice to see the sunshine again.

  14. I watched a nature documentary recently where a pride of lions brought down a buffalo and started to eat it alive. Pretty gruesome stuff!

  15. Isn't it great to see blue skies? We haven't had a cloud all day and the temps topped out at 42 degrees! I am not ready for winter to be over, but I do love to see the sun and some blue sky! Thanks for sharing your town with us!

  20. What a fun walk through your area! Great skies and that is a FABULOUS price on tulips. I would have bought five bunches. Here they range between 5.99 and 7.99 or even 9.99. I'm sure there's a dif with the exchange rate but still, a terrific price. In fact, if I'm doing this right, if I bought them with the US exchange rate it would probably be about 20-25 percent less than even that, which makes the price even better!

  22. The lion photos are simply breathtaking Joy --- but I loved seeing your town on the bright and beautiful day ... and beautiful night photos too. I wish we would ever see tulips and daffodils and such spring flowers here, but they don't grow here and I don't even see them in the stores. I miss them.

A Clear Day

  December started off just right. We had a clear, blue sky. At least most of it was blue. After several very damaging rain storms, this was...
