Sudden weather changes, beautiful pink flamingos and sunset!

Just the other day it was slightly snowing - last time it snowed in Sardinia it was 1993!
Unfortunately it melted as soon as it touched the ground :(

 

I was lucky enough to manage to take some photos before snow could melt!

 

Not much, but it made my daughters happy, as it never snows here- they went out in the garden without a jacket on, and it was freezy cold! They're crazy!


 

Hope you can see some small snow flakes!


And look at what I was able to photograph, today!


 

 A beautiful day, isn't it?This is the "Stagno di Molentargius" ( a pond), a natural preserve..in fact it hosts...

Beautiful...
Pink...
  
Flamingos!
They migrate from Africa to the closest warm place, which is Sardinia..sometimes there are really so many, they look wonderful!I hope they will never go away from here, because that would be a bad sign!

I keep this post short, and leave you with the picture of a wonderful sunset..Seems that Spring's already here!

Beautiful, beautiful skyscape - what a sunset!

How lovely to have flamingoes on that lake Annalisa, we saw them in the Camargue a few years ago. They are so pretty.

Enjoy your flurries of snow, I'm sure it won't last!

Happy weekend. Jeanne x

We live in Florida, and we've never seen a Flamingo! You're so lucky. Thank you so much for showing them to us, friend:)

What gorgeous photos. Really love your flamingos. Over here in England we have had far too much snow this year and it would be nice for spring to come soon. I look forward to bright early mornings and warm sun.
