☀Sunlit Sunday: Season 2, Week #7

Welcome to the seventh ☀Sunlit Sunday of 2013. 
Last week was (with 26 participants from 6 countries) the largest gathering that has been hosted at this little wintertime rendezvous. It's always a pleasure to see the names of familiar bloggers and to welcome others joining in for the first time.

I don't know about you, but I find that a poached egg on half an English muffin has a pretty sunny look about it. At least, it does if it's keeping company with some greens, red peppers strips, a mushroom and a juicy tangerine.

Outdoors, there was also some sunshine this week. Clear blue skies alternated with the grey ones; moderation works for me.

I couldn't help but notice the lilac bush and dogwood shadows decorating the surface of the sparkling snow. When young, one of the sheer delights of childhood was being the first to set foot on fresh fallen frostiness. To be honest, there's still a certain thrill in it! 

 During the upcoming week, I hope you receive, 

and give, 

a little sunshine.


  1. I love the snow and the tangerine photos ~ they're just beautiful. Happy weekend.

  2. Hi Karen, The shadows on snow are gorgeous; I also love the colors you captured with the orange. You are an artist with a camera, Karen!
    blessings, Beth

  3. Love that first shot. Good shot and healthy too. Wishing you the best this week. Thanks for hosting.

  4. Sunny side up please!! Your pictures are all wonderful! Love the shadows on the snow. You are right..there is something neat about going out on the fresh fallen snow and making that first impression or two! Thanks for hosting again!!

  5. Beautiful and peaceful clicks, I really love the click of dogwood shadows over the snow.
    Have a great Sunday!

  6. Hi Karen, Beautiful pictures! For a minute there, your tangerine looked like a piece of orange calcite I have :-) Great capture on that! Thanks for hosting!

  7. I'm pleased that Sunlit Sunday is going well for you. You deserve every success. This is a fun and friendly meme. It brings fun into my life. Well done.
    Love your photos. I'm a big fan of English muffins.

  8. Poached eggs are my favourite. The tangerine looks mouth watering.
    Nice to see more people joining in.
    Have a sunny Sunday.

  9. My kind of breakie Karen, poached eggs on toast mostly growing up. I'm happy for you that more people find the meme fun to join in, after all, I'm sure everyone has a little sunshine to share.

    1. Hi, Judith. I`m just testing something. I`m replying to your comment from my blog page, rather than from my email as I usually do. Could you just let me know if this particular message finds its way to your email? Thank you!

  10. Those eggs look delicious Karen, yum!!!

    Have a great week.

    Your link up is doing really well, I'm so glad.

    Take care and keep warm.

    Wishing you lots of sunshine!


  11. I have not had breakfast yet and of course now I am going to have to make eggs after looking at YOUR wonderful breakfast! :)

  12. Mmmm breakfast looks good. I agree - first footstep on snow is always fun. I would look back at the first footprints and sometimes fall in the snow. Lovely photos.

  13. Hi Karen,
    I just got back from my walk and that poached egg looks delicious!! And the orange too, perfect! My hubby is making me an omelette for a late breakfast...
    Enjoy your the sunshine & blue skies today!
    All the Best,

  14. We've had a glimpse or two of the sun lately, and I have high hopes for today. I'm getting tired with being 'inventive' about sunny posts! I'd like to do one with real sunshine!
