A portion of yesterday's sculpture turns up with this sculpture; I think this was a Canadian carver's work, playing around with the notion of winter outside the window. Yes, I know, for many of you, you've had quite enough of that word. For some peculiar reason I can't understand, not everyone loves the winter. Such people must be daft.
Or maybe I'm the one who's daft.
This statue , seems to me, that is the best you've taught us, it is right ?.ReplyDelete
I enjoy winter, too.ReplyDelete
Not daft at all William.. can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to winter, no snow unfortunately :( Love this and yesterday's sculptures, much complex sculpturing going on there!ReplyDelete
Nice sculpture, but you better not venture south ... New York's freezing over soon anyway.
That's a beautiful sculpture! No, you are not daft. I think it's great you love winter.ReplyDelete
I love having four seasons, even though I'm ready for spring :-)
For most of my life I've been with you; winter is great! But the last two weeks of -25 to -40 windchills is rapidly changing my mind!! I want it -5 and sunny! (And by the way I've been enjoying your series on ice carving. Seems to me it gets fancier and more detailed all the time).ReplyDelete
@Tomas: I think so!ReplyDelete
@Whisk: so I'm not alone!
@Grace: it must take a lot of being careful to put these together.
@Merisi: we're all locked in the same cold snap over eastern North America.
@Tamago: well, I do look forward to the tulips.
@Gnome: thank you!
I love winter too, William. That's the reasons why I wasn't glad with the second very mild winter in a row in the Netherlands.ReplyDelete
i like the brickwork. :)ReplyDelete
Not daft at all, William. I love winter, too. :)ReplyDelete
I must be about as daft as they come! Winter here in AZ is okay but winter up there is not for me.ReplyDelete
I love winter...in Barbados!ReplyDelete
I do love winter, but probably I wouldn't like your winter too much!ReplyDelete
Very very neat.ReplyDelete
I like winter and I miss snow but I don't like going for weeks on end with the power out and the heavy snow breaking trees and such but I do miss snow and very cold temps and bright blue skies. The last two items I do like. Makes me feel good!!
Ah ha. Now I see what you mean. I like the action in this one.ReplyDelete
I like a nice winter but not this one - too cold for days on end with constant windchill making it unpleasant to be wandering outside for long.ReplyDelete
i have noticed as i get older that the winters do seem worse, longer, lots more crazy weather, the weather seems to be really wild. but i guess the point is ... winter is great when it works with your own schedule. but??! right now i am wishing for some spring color. i miss green grass & pretty flowers. my fave is fall or autumn weather. ( :ReplyDelete
How could anyone not love winter? You're kidding, right?ReplyDelete
I love winter!ReplyDelete
@Jan: we had a lot of the cold here.ReplyDelete
@Tex: yes, that amount of attention to detail is a good touch.
@Linda: I see I'm not alone in this!
@Sharon: the first winter here is the hardest!
@Jane and Chris: hah!
@VP: ours are long, and feel longer.
@MB: admittedly, power outages aren't fun.
@RedPat: it's been a winter we won't forget.
@Beth: come July, everyone will be saying, "when's winter coming back?"
@Norma: of course I'm not kidding.
William, these works seem to get more and more complex, what great artists.ReplyDelete
I don't get this one, perhaps my imagination is muted by the late hour... What's the top hat doing here? Love the frosty window though!ReplyDelete
I love the beauty of winter just not the cold but I am out in it every day just because I love the outdoors and nature ! Nice sculpture ! Thanks for sharing , Have a good weekend !ReplyDelete
Yeah.. pretty daft. ;) But that's okay. I love the intense heat of summer.ReplyDelete
Cool how they made the frost designs on the window. Nice one.
Good one. And no, I'm not daft, a skewed mind perhaps, but not daft. Besides, I freeze in cold weather.ReplyDelete
Well, I'm daft along with you! My least favourite season is summer when it's hot. Maybe because I don't have a pool and I don't live beside a lake. :))ReplyDelete
@Geoff: the carvers did wonderfully this year.ReplyDelete
@Ciel: having had looked at this, I realize I should have taken two shots of this one from different angles- I think the fellow is playing a musical instrument. With a top hat.
@Country Gal: thank you!
@Hilary: the frost details on this really looks like the real thing.
@Mari: not everyone loves winter, after all.
@EG: humidity is not my idea of a swell time.
This is beautiful. I used to love winter until about five years ago we got so much snow it knocked out the electric for a week. Drove me nuts!ReplyDelete
I love Winter.ReplyDelete
I'd like winter if it lasted for six weeks, beginning in mid-December and ending on Groundhog Day.ReplyDelete
To each their own, William.ReplyDelete
Lovely patterns on the brickwork and window!ReplyDelete
And yes, it's definitely you!
I don't hate winter but I' m not fond of it ... A few weeks of snow with sun would be enough for me.ReplyDelete
wow, like the patterns Jack Frost made on the snow in the movie 'Rise of the Guardians' :-)ReplyDelete
I am nearing the end of patience. The sunshine is lovely, though, and I don't want a drastic change. The sun is slowly warming and it's lovely, on the front deck, south=facing out of the wind! I hope it melts slowly!ReplyDelete
How could anyone not love winter? Do I really need to explain this? Why do you think half of the folks in northern USA and Canada are down here in Florida this month?ReplyDelete
I'm with Jack. I'd say the other half of those people are down here in the southwestern U.S. I can see snow in the mountains from here and that is about as close as I want to get to it.ReplyDelete
@Cassandra: I adore the winter.ReplyDelete
@Randy: it is the best season.
@Linda: here we can count on snow into April.
@Elaine: I think so.
@Cheryl: I've got to be me.ReplyDelete
@TDP: I can't get enough of winter.
@Jennifer: slow melts are best.
@Jack: ah, they're cowards! :)
@Pat: snow is the best of all things.
