Thanks, Maxine, Tamás, and Palmina. I'm glad I took it when I did: we've now lost the beautiful snow! But there will almost certainly be some more.

Greetings, Marilyn

One thing I thought I learnt about national differences when I was working for the Commonwealth Institute in London 30 years ago, was that the English didn't get enough snow and complained about it when they did, and the Canadians got too much and complained when it melted and wasn't there. The Canadians then were out making sport in the snow, and the English were inside keeping warm palying word games and eating chips and cake for high tea. And Marilyn you have just proven the Canadian part of the hypothesis! I love your creativity in blue, and the idea to photograph it and post it. Ian PS: I guess some of our English friends (or English emigres) will help me test the other half of the hypothesis.

Ian, you are right about Canadians loving snow. I live in Vancouver where we get very little. But when it does snow, it is an unoffical holiday all over town. Griping and moaning about the dreadful road conditions, people leave work early or don't come in at all. Then, it's off to the nearest ski or toboggan hill for some fun with the kids!

I like your analysis, Ian, and your description, Nawitka! They do ring true.

I am impressed seeing this first picture from you!

Greetings from Bavaria, where we love snow too :-)

I love this bright colours on pale background! Looks like "Photo of Picture" :)

Marilyn Whiteley on January 18, 2008

I'm very glad you like my window, Ainars. It certainly cheers my comings and goings since it's right beside the front door.

Ainars M -2 on January 20, 2008

Great idea about "4 Seasons trough my window"! :)

Looking forwards for next season photos! :) Cheers, Ainars

Marilyn Whiteley on January 20, 2008

Sometimes, Ainars, our Panoramio friends give us very good ideas, and this was one of those times. When I took the autumn picture, I had no thought of doing more! Cheers, Marilyn

Ainars M -2 on January 23, 2008

I know Your thoughts! Sounds familiar for me! :)

I like once to repeat - this one serie is great idea! Looking forwards now for next great puzzle tile!

lovely photo Marilyn. I think I am going to break the ' English' mould here. Contrary to some beliefs, not all of us run and hide at the sight of snow. Most of us are delighted at the sight of snow covered hills etc.As you know climate change has altered our and the worlds weather patterns drastically. I know that it's not only the English that are talking about the weather these days!! We love your snow shots Marilyn so keep then coming...Anita

Marilyn Whiteley on January 26, 2008

Thank you, Anita. We lost our snow for a while but we have a good amount now. I have intended to get some new pictures, but I've been busy. Also I have just read something in the newspaper that confirms what I had guessed: we have been having much less than the usual amount of sunshine this winter! But I have hopes.

And thanks again, Ainars. I was delighted with the number of comments you left four days ago, but I didn't reply to each one.

Wonderful Marilyn! Best wishes Samantha

I'm glad you found this, Sam, and thanks for your comment. Cheers, Marilyn
