A short visit in my windows – because now the sun is shining in! Spring is knocking on the door, and this time of the year we call ”vårvinter”, a word for the season in between – between winter and spring. The name translated would be ”spring winter” in English. If you have another/the proper word for it, please tell me!
Windows – my glass house still wears its roses with pride, but in my home spring is exploding in every corner and every colour…
We are grateful to see the light coming back, lifting us up from the darkest season. Fortunately, I love all seasons and would not be without any of them! My favourite is spring, with Life returning. The cranes are calling, and the tits and finches are fighting already…Yesterday a flock of skylarks were sighted in the fields south of my home. Welcome!

Beautiful photos. Love your method of creating ”filters” to add beauty to the pics.
Fantastic and so precise photography done. Great pictures
Thank you very much for commenting!
Beauty is blooming for you! Excellent … and spring will be here soon. For me, I’m not sure I use a word for the time between winter and spring. Well, other than March – a crazy month that comes in like a lion then goes out like a lamb.
Ha, loved your saying there, Frank!
🙂 …. FYI: Tina is my current collaborator.
We are having a bit of Spring Winter in Prescott, AZ, too. It’s much warmer, but flowers are not blooming yet even though we live on Blooming Hills Dr. But the temperatures are in the 50s and 60s F. The snow has long melted except for just a few shady spots. Your pictures are lovely and like you, Leya, I’m looking forward to spring. 🙂 Have a great weekend.
Thank you – you too, Marsha!
Hibiscus grown in your glass house, Ann-Christine? And my favourite colouration 🙂 🙂 Love those frost patterns too, though they remind me of the real thing on my bedroom window when I was a child.
♥ Your favourite colouration! Yay – thanks!
Wow they almost look like landscapes
Welcome, Sun! You’ve been missed around here!
Very nice layered views! Frost makes wonderful art! We lose our frost patterns to the insulating air between our multi layered windows.Lucky you to have these. 🙂
Thank you! And the glass house makes them possible again. So grateful.
God and his handiwork! Beautiful!
I love these marvelously contrasted winter and spring images. Something to love in each.
Wonderful that you are getting more light, and Spring is on its way!
Ever so good and happy you are happy A-C 🙂
I love the frost patterns and also what you did with the indoor photos. As for the season between winter and spring…when I worked in Steamboat Springs, we called it mud season! When you went into the library, you had to leave your shoes at the door. 😉
Mud season! I will borrow that as a second name for it!
Thank you, VJ! A happy time up here!
Awesome. You’re welcome.
Those frost ferns and roses are exquisite! Such complex fractal patterns that we no longer see on our insulated windows.
I love them – and yes, we no longer experience them…unless we have a glass house!
Not a heated glass house then?
I have divided and plastic covered a third of it – Only that part is heated. Holds a minimum of 10 degrees C for my plants. Worked well with minus 15 outside too!
It can be expensive to keep one heated, you seem to have found a good solution.
I hope so – worked so far. Don’t know what the cost will be though, with the fan going every day almost.
I have a humidifier on in my conservatory, because it leaks, plus a heater for the few days it was really cold. My electric bill that month was much higher, but needs must.
That’s my thinking as well.
