Well, it is February, and I suppose we can expect it to be cold and wintry, but does it have to be so WET??    Not called "February Fill-Dyke" for nothing!

Anyway, Carmi has gone for a COLD Theme this time!

Of course, there is welcome cold - this beer in an iced glass was more than welcome in Alicante after a very hot stroll around part of the town!

But the Blackheaded gulls on the frozen lake in our local park didn't seem to be terribly impressed!

Go to the link above to see what other chilly shots have been posted!   And do leave a comment if you visit - I love reading them!

Cheers to your frosty delight in photo one, and your second is sweet-feathered-friends how are you doing?!

I love your take on "cold" - frosty beer and birds that seem unfazed by frost. I want to give them some socks, but I guess their feet aren't cold the way mine would be.

It's Summer here Gilly so a nice cold beer would go down nicely. Our local Gulls are no doubt some what warmer than your too

Hope the gulls don't get frozen in.

It's soooo hot here at the moment - I'd love some of this cold beer!

Lovely, Gilly. As to 'wet' yes it has been, for so long, hasn't it? Which makes having three consecutive dry days - with sun too, something to celebrate. More rain is forecast for this neck of the woods tomorrow though. Best wishes, Lesley. x

Sorry, Gilly, I missed this one.

I wish we had some cold beer in the fridge, but we don't. I'll have to settle for some lukewarm cabernet.

I feel cold in my fingers by just looking at that mug. It's TV commercial-worthy, Gilly!

And if those gulls could talk, I'm guessing their words wouldn't be suitable for a family-rated blog :)

I love these! I'm brewing another theme for tomorrow, and I hope you'll enjoy it!
