  1. Hi Benni !! Many thanks for stepping in as host at such short notice, was very kind of you to offer.

    Great theme, and I really like all your photos. I'm not a big fan of snow (or rather being out in it), but it makes for a beautiful photo. That's a wonderful Spring dew scene in the second shot. Fabulous shot of the Capitol Dome, it's really beautiful.

    1. Yellow has always been my favorite color and I shamelessly steal these rare yellow violets from my neighbors back lot and plant them in mine.

    1. It was a lovely day, when the snow fell, Belita. And we got a day off work to boot! So glad you like the theme and pics.

  5. The snow looks familiar, must be related to our Swiss snow, but a wonderful capture, really looks fresh. The water drops on the flower are a great capture and a lovely view of the dome. Interesting dome.

    1. It was a rare heavy snow so it stuck to every branch and twig. Thank you for your kind words.

  6. First shot looks very much the scene outside my window right now.
    I like how clear you captured the drops in the second photo.
    The light comes through the window in the third, makes all those fresco paintings shine! Very nice.

    1. I was wondering if those were frescos. The building is relatively young (late 1800's) so they may not be frescos, but I would like to think they are.

  7. The first two are postcard perfect. Magnificent ceiling.
