Mosaic and blue Monday.


We have winter here . The coldest in more than 25 years.  We had  one day of snow but it is only freezing  now.. The temperature during the night goes down till at least -15 * Celsius and during the day it will be about
- 6*. So very cold. Most little streams, canals and many lakes are frozen. It is wonderful for people who love to skate and for the children of course. Most kids do skate so they are having a great time.
As for me, I stay inside as much as possible. I made a mosaic of photo’s I made yesterday just here around our building.

van alles wat in huis en sneeuw

Het is inderdaad lekker koud, dat zijn we deze winter nog niet gewend! Maar met de zon en een stralende blauwe lucht vind ik deze winterse wereld wel erg mooi!

Een mooie collage Riet! Ik wens je nog een fijne avond! Lieve groet, Ingrid

Lieve Riet,

Prachtige winterse foto's! Ook hier wordt er volop geschaatst op de singels. Mijn man en de meiden hebben vandaag ook de ijzers ondergebonden, maar ik heb deze keer alleen maar foto's genomen. Leuk om die vrolijke gezichten om je heen te zien. Echt genieten!

Een gezellige nieuwe week!

Very nice collage, I still need to think about the different colour contrast of grey and white. Is this improving the effect? It could be.

Greetings,
Filip

Pretty pictures of the snow, but I'm happy to live in the "sunny south" where it's 50 degrees F. today.

for someone who is in the middle of summer here - 30-40C - I am loving your snow images. Beautiful simplicity in the twig and pinecone image.

It looks gorgeous. My cousin lives in Amsterdam and is enjoying her winter there.

Snap said...

Stay warm and cozy! I enjoyed your winter mosaic ... looks pretty and fun for the kids, but I don't like being cold (but I don't like being hot either ...!!!)!!!!!

A Garden of Threads said...

Hi Riet, We must have your mild weather. It has been above freezing for weeks. Stay warm and have a great week:)

Carol @ Always Thyme to Cook said...

Beautiful collage, I love the snow, looks so pretty. Our winter has been mild so your snow is a welcome sight for me.

Lavender Cottage said...

Hello Riet
Strange how everyone is having the opposite to what they normally do for winter weather.
Stay warm and don't be afraid to practically hibernate like I do when it's that cold.

Lorrie said...

I've heard that some people in the Netherlands are hoping the cold weather stays so they can hold the speed skating race. Brrrr.

Stay warm and cozy.

Kim, USA said...

Brrr that is so cold. Here in my area our winter is like early spring. ^_^

Jan said...

The snow looks so attractive, hope it is not inconveniencing your family.

afanja said...

Mooie winterse collage, Riet.
De sneeuw had voor mij in dit geval niet hoeven vallen, want dat dreigt een lelijke spelbreker te worden voor de tocht der tochten.
Om de hoop op die tocht levend te houden, kan het mij de komende week niet koud genoeg worden.

biebkriebels said...

Ach ja het is koud, maar we slaan ons er wel doorheen. In ieder geval zorgt het voor mooie plaatjes.

Pondside said...

We've been reading about your terrible weather! The snow in your mosaic looks beautiful, but all I can think is 'I hope everyone is staying warm!'

SmilingSally said...

Love that snow-covered blue car. Stay warm!

Happy Blue Monday, Riet.

LadyFi said...

Oh how lovely - snow!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Hi Riet!
I've been seeing how cold all of Europe is this winter on the news! I hope the weather warms up a little for you soon. Love your frosty mosaic

Carolyn said...

Hi Riet,
I hope you get enough ice to have your big skating race-wow! 15,000 people,I don't think I would enter that one.I would be afraid I would fall and have hundreds skate over me Ha!
We are much more used to the cold temperatures here in winter but it has been much milder this year.
Maybe,it is my Dutch heritage that has me out skating on our pond-my Mom talked about skating on the canals in Holland as a child.
Take care,
Carolyn

Beautiful pictures Riet...I am actually starting to miss having a little snow! I know that it had been a rough winter in Europe...stay safe!

LV said...

We have had and still are having strange weather. Just thankful we have nothing like you . Too cold for me.

Ingmarie We said...

Strange weather for the Netherlands, isn't it? We hae had some cold here to, but will have better weather the coming days.
But you did the best of the cold and took lovely photos and made a very fine and wintry mosaic.

Vagabonde said...

It does look cold. I heard how cold some areas of Europe have been. Here we are almost in spring – my azalea bush is starting to bloom. Yesterday was 70 degrees (21 C.) I hope we don’t get a late freeze and all the blooms will die.

Mary Howell Cromer said...

Oh Riet, that does look so cold! I am not at all a cold weather person, but we have almost been wishing for a bit of snow. We have been having spring like weather for a couple of weeks and all of nature is upside down. Have a great week~

Leah H. said...

I like that Blue car- the size and everything. That is what I need:)
