craving color

I know this is not news, but ya'll it is freeeee. zing!  And I am so over it!  And it's only January.  The sun is shining outside but it literally hurts to be outside for more than a second.  I mean, even my teeth hurt.  I mean what is that about (<---said in my best Chandler Bing)? Every year around this time I ask myself why I haven't uprooted and left for warmer climates.  But there is just something about Pittsburgh that stole my heart.  It must be true love for me stick around year after year.  

I am currently craving the warm moments these photos recall for me.  On Sundays we go to the in-laws for dinner.  These were taken while walking around their yard and checking out the freshly bloomed flowers in their garden.  If those colors don't scream Summer and warmth, I'm not sure what else would.

Has it been freezing where you are?
What helps get you through January & February?

  4. I'm in NC and I am sure a lot of people have it worse than we do, but I am so ready for warmer weather! These pictures were such a tease.

  5. I live on the GA/FL border and we may potentially have wintery mix coming our way next week and people are bracing themselves for the icepocolypse. Are these flowers day lilies? I have several in my yard, but have never seen any that color before!

  6. These a are beautiful! What lens did you use to take these shots? I'm contemplating a macro lens... wondering about other photographers thoughts!

  7. These flowers are so gorgeous! I really miss summer as well...These make me miss it even more! haha.

  8. Those flowers are beautiful! I keep trying to move away from Pittsburgh but I just can't do it! Hope you're staying warm!

    PS I totally read that one line in Chandler's voice haha I love Friends!
