Things That Are Cold: Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge

icicles, rust
This week’s topic for Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge is things that are cold.

Snow on a fence and trees

I see a pattern with my images: they are mostly based on the weather. Snow and ice and cold is all I can think about. The temperatures will drop this weekend to their lowest of the winter so far.

I wonder how I would have done this challenge in the summer time? Maybe images of ice-cold drinks sitting out in the sun?

Speaking of summer, it will be nice to get out to the parks and playgrounds again.

Or go swimming in the lake.

Or go check out the marina near the beach.

Or even just looking at stop signs without being reminded of snow.

But for now, my world is full of things that are cold. And that includes me!

 

Snowy Baby Swings

There’s magic waiting in these swings

In only a matter of weeks, how many babies will take their first swings right here?

How many moms and dads will hear the squeals of delight that swings bring to children who have been cooped up indoors for months?

Spring is truly an exciting time.

For now, the playground can rest under snow and ice. Soon it will have quite a lot of work to do.

Snowy Playground

Yesterday it snowed, but the colors of the playground looked inviting.

At least that chunk of ice got to enjoy the slide. Whheeeeeeeeeeee!!

Usually kids have to wait for a turn on these swings.

Soon these slides will be filled with shrieking children, but for now all’s quiet.

The colors just popped out from the grey and white of the snow.

I also did a post about the baby swings at this playground.
