SPOTTED BEAUTY



Today I feel the need to post a warm and cheerful photo.

The weather has been really tough lately.
Snow and ice conditions make life difficult here.
Train and buses have been cancelled, roads have been closed,
lots of car accidents have been reported.

Yesterday when I visited the harbour of Kåseberga
one of the fishing boats had sunk during the night.
The pressure of the ice made a big whole on her port side.

I really hope she will soon recover!


The theme for this week is "Spotted".
Please visit the home of Photohunters and Scenic Sunday to find more participants.

  1. Aaah Randi så vackert men fotot över hamnen i Kåseberga tar priset. Enastående vackert! Hoppat att de får ordning på båten och att vinden har bedarrat något. Här är det svinkallt -10,4 men snöandet har gudskelov avvagit och lika så den hårda vinden.

    Trevlig Helg/ Tyra

  2. Ja det är så vackert. Bilden från hamnen också. Ja det är nog inte bara båtar som får problem nu. Vi har det kallt (-11) och det snör till och från.
    Önskar dig en skön helg!

  3. Mmm vackert!
    Ja vi får hoppas att vintern tar slut snart så vi får njuta av värme och sol. Detta är helt makalöst!
    Önskar dig en trevlig helg, Randi!

  6. Underbart vacker och värmande bild på en vacker lilja. Ja, man bara längtar efter bilder med varma energigivande färger som motvikt till allt detta vita. Bilderna i dina tidigare inlägg är som vanligt fantastiska, jag begriper inte hur du får till det så bra. Ha en skön helg. Kram!

  8. That is a gorgeous spotted flower. I hope your weather improves soon. Ours is set to get bad with a storm bringing snow, sleet, and freezing rain and a drastic drop in the temperatures. At least we have back and forth weather where I live. I know you're about ready for a break from your winter. Happy weekend.

  12. Hope it warms up next week.

    Take care and stay warm indoors.

    This is one fantastic lily.

  13. Ljuvlig blomfägring ljuvligt skildrad per kamera av dig...som alltid!!;-)
    Förstår också att hamnen i Kåseberga måste vara dramatiskt och också vackert mål för din lins just nu! Men hu så starka karfter därute! Hoppas båten går att återställa!
    Ha en skön helg!

  14. Wow, Randi, the recent weather sounds awful! Have to admit that I just assumed that Scandinavians would be used to -- and able to cope well -- with snow!!

    In any event, your photo is beautiful and warming to look at. Hope you have a good weekend -- and week ahead.

  15. Så vackert !
    Ja, det här är en vinter att minnas. Vi har mycket snö och att ta sig till och från jobbet kan vara svårt ibland.

    En varm kram till dig

  17. I love the smell of lilies. I wish I could grow them but every time I try, we get those horrid lily beetles.

    I did my "spotted" last week so did "balance" this week

  18. Beautiful flowers, but they are extremely poisonous to cats, as are all flowers in the lily family. And I am one to know these things. ;-)

    SvaraRadera
  19. The weather sounds terrible. Your lily is definitely a warmer sight.

  35. Det verkar vara en väldigt jobbig tid nu för många som inte tycker om den vita vintern. Jag lider verkligen med dig även om jag själv tycker att det är OK ännu...

  38. What a gorgeous flower. It definitely makes you think of warmer weather. Certainly another interesting theme with lots of different takes. I’m glad I came and saw yours.

    I took a little different angle. You can drop by and check mine here.

  39. Gorgeous, right down to the spots.

    We've been iced in a few times this winter, but right now... Wait. I better go look out the window before I say.

    Cloudy and a little slick, but not bad.

    I'm looking forward to warmer weather.
