Teasing me





The weekend has been cold and rainy.
But the cool weather has at least slowed down the 
forsythia's blooms.

Mother Nature is such a tease.

These are both so beautiful! It is getting down right hot where I am. I'm getting a little scared of what August is going to feel like.

Grace said...

Our weather here has been crazy.

I have used a photo of yours for my haiku writing, credit to you.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures ~

Sylvia K said...

Ah, a tease she is indeed! We have little glimpses of sunshine and then the clouds/wind/rain and chilly temps return!

Love these images.

CherryPie said...

After the rain, I always find nature colours so beautifully enhanced :-)

Hilary said...

She's doing the same around these parts. Beautiful foggy day, there.

My Journey With Candida said...

Yes Mother Nature is a tease, and she can be brutal at times.

Most of my daffodils froze a couple of days ago.

eileeninmd said...

I agree Mother Nature is a tease. I love your images, Reena!! I hope you have a wonderful week ahead.

Wanda..plain~N~simple said...

Love your editing! MN must be having hot flashes, first it's hot then it's cold...

Tammy said...

I love the misty quality of those trees!

Jennifer Richardson said...

nice when Spring takes her time
about getting all glorious:)
leaves more for the
unfurling.
forsythia love,
Jennifer

Cheryl said...

UGH! When the weather spun back to more springlike yuck, I curled up into a little ball and keened all week long. I think there was some gnashing of teeth in there too. Hard frost last night just made it all so sordid.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

The forsythia is always early and then blooms again later, too! Happy April to you! ♥

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

We were spoiled. It's supposed to be sunny for the next few days, that should make the forsythia's pop :-)

lisa said...

She is indeed!!!
These are just gorgeous Reena.
I love the wonderful tones on both of them.
Sending you wishes for a fantastic Monday.

You've caught her beauty well.

We can never escape from being teased.

Ginny said...

Spooky, evocative, old-worldly, and beautiful.

Catherine said...

Mother Nature is indeed a tease! Predictions of snow at the end of the week. Crazy!
But your photos are beautiful! :)

ds said...

Beautiful. I especially love the patina (if that is what it's called) of the second one.

Margie said...

She is, and plays by her own rules! Love the yellow!

GailO said...

Gorgeous photos!

I have been happy to have this cooler, damp weather too... in hopes that my daffodils will last until Easter:)

Debbie said...

and a tad confused this year!!

beautiful captures, i love the forsythia!!

ladyfi said...

Wow - who can be angry at the weather when you get such gorgeous photos?

Linda R said...

Yep, I have to agree Mother Nature is just messing with us!! Your photos look beautiful..

edgar said...

You bring out the beauty of spring - blooms and birds.

Our rain here in Northern California has stopped. It's cool and sunny today.

Caroline said...

Mother nature has been fickle here too! Gorgeous photos!

Laura said...

I would love the feeling of cold rain. It's so hot here in Bangalore!

Nancy Claeys said...

We could do with a bit of slowing down here -- 90s yesterday and today. Too much too fast.

Love the foggy photos. Pure Reena! :)

Nezzy said...

Ya bet your sweet bloomers she has. I do believe Mother Nature has done went and gone all bi~polar on us this year.

I live in a frost holler and it was 90 yesterday. We can get killin' frost up to May 15th...I fear for my acre of flower gardens. Heck, the stinkin' roses already have buds. I'm sayin'......

What beautiful images ya captured lurkin' in the foggy mist sweetie!

God bless ya and have yourself a magnificent week sweetie!!! :o)

Betty Manousos@ CUT and DRY said...

Daryl Edelstein said...

Madi and Mom said...

Morning Ms. Reena!!
What a lovely picture to see as we opened your blog. My Dad says we have 4 seasons in Raleigh,
Summer, Fall, Winter and Pollen.
March was like April and April is like May.
Hugs Madi

Gorgeous photos!

Snapper II said...

Misty fog, trees and fence. Beautiful.

Sandra said...

fog is so beautiful, but just in your photos, don't like it when it is here for sure.

EG CameraGirl said...

The forsythia is lovely even in the rain.

dona said...

How strange to see the Forsythias trimmed at the top to form a hedge! Here in Italy we only use them as isolated specimen.
Have a nice day Reena!

Tammy said...

These are stunning photos!

Ivanhoe said...

I know! It has been much colder here, too. We got the taste of the 70's and now back to normal :(

Jazzi said...

Yes she is but that is the beauty of Mother Nature!!

Amish Stories said...

Hi folks and we had a warm winter pretty much like most of you did, now this week its somewhat cooler but the trees are blooming and the flowers are popping out so life here in Amish country is very good! Richard

My Journey With Candida said...

Reena,
I linked this post on my blog to the Garden Club I am doing. If you want me to take it off... let me know.

Pat Tillett said...

They are both great! The second one is dark, moody, and a little bit eerie! Love it!
