Enough to bring a smile to any face, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: It sure is fun to see what can be made out of glass, Ray! smile Thanks.
Adorable! And I can't seem to escape the heat! In Virginia and the forecast is close to 100 for the next few days!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Robin. That's way too hot for me, so I feel for you. Some have gotten relief but not all, I see. So sorry. Hang in there.

I hope it is not getting that hot, here too. (Like at Robin's)These fellas might melt.
Great shot, made me smile.
Ginnie Hart: The day it gets that hot here in the Netherlands will be the day, MLMA! I just wish we could give some of our cool temps to those who need it, just to equalize things out a bit! So glad to bring a smile.... smile
Thanks Ginnie... it was warm here today and i did a lot of yard work... i wish that i had this to cool me off around four o'clockgrin....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Getting a bear hug from a snowman would have felt nice, Peter, right?! smile Thanks.

Today is cloudy & muggy Ginnie: these might come in handy
Ginnie Hart: Also keep a snowman nearby, Chris, in case you need one! smile

i'm freeeeeezing, it's supposed to be summer!! i love this, it just gave me a little jolt of happiness, thinking of Christmas smile
Ginnie Hart: It's chilly where we are, too, Elaine, which somehow doesn't quite compute, does it. And yes, thinking of Christmas doesn't hurt, now that we're almost in that half of the year. smile
Well here in Sussex it has been almost too hot to sleep.
Ginnie Hart: I've been hearing stories like that from all over, Chad. So sorry! sad

Hahah... yes, could well be needed. It;s become very humid here and I could just do with one of those nearby. Good selecting colouring.
Ginnie Hart: We're still hanging around 60-65F/15-18C here in the Netherlands, Alan. I wish I could send some of it to you! Thanks.
Humid and overcast....summer has arrivedgrin
Ginnie Hart: And here I sit wearing my computer gloves, Bill! Something's wrong with that picture.

What a fun..sweet...adorable image!! Love how you've isolated these two little guys. Yes - a nice reminder to keep cool...smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Marcie. Anything to keep us cool...the ones who need it!
Funny characters, especially at this time of year....made me smile smile Nice shot Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Martin. Sometimes if you think cool you are cool. grin
It is perfect here. We had the long needed rain and it's heaven again. I refuse to think about winter.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Good for you, Mary. We're cool, too, but I keep hearing of those who are still suffering. Too bad we can't spread it all around to equalize things out.

Looks like Christmas is early this year. A fun and very sweet capture Ginnie. Here in SA we are battling to stay warm would not want it to get any cooler.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Laurette. Oh yes, I must not forget that you're in the opposite direction from us these days. In your case, then, stay warm! smile
wow Ginnie these glass blowers have a hell of a catalogue...
Ginnie Hart: You have no idea, Juan Carlos. Seriously!
Frostie has huge hands! Ha grin
Maybe he's Froggie.
A frog dressed in panda suit, perhaps? wink
Ginnie Hart: HA! If anyone can figure it out, LC, it will be you. grin
wintery and christmassy
Ginnie Hart: Not that WE needed to cool off, of course. smile I'm still wearing long sleeves, a vest and my computer gloves.
Cute little characters aren't they.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Brian, they are. smile
Oh my yes, we are going to Ohio this weekend... it is supposed to be 106 degrees! That is almost unheard of Ginnie. What in the world is happening? These are adorable snowmen, perfect for a Christmas tree :^)
Ginnie Hart: I knew someone would need these, Doug, so here's to staying cool, if at all possible! That's HOT.
very observant of you to have come up with this composition
Ginnie Hart: You'ver most kind, Ayush!
Ah, glass-blown ornaments, Ginnie, they add so much charm to a decorated Christmas tree. We have several that were given to us by hubby's niece, a glassblowing artist in Vancouver.

Temperatures in Montreal are very pleasant right now, so no complaints from here.
Ginnie Hart: Delightful ornaments for the tree, indeed, Beverly! So glad you're not suffering from the heat. Neither are we. In fact, it's still very cool here, between 60-65F.

Superb composition with an excellent framing. I like it. Have a lovely afternoon. Ginne. Amicably Antoine.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Antoine. Merci.
Kinky snowmen in those black boots and gloves -)
Ginnie Hart: Anything to bring a smile, John! smile
Oh, my! What a nice surprise. Yes, we could use some cooling off - 102 yesterday with heat indices of 110-112. Whew!

Those little guys are cute - nice to see a variation on the usual red scarf!
Ginnie Hart: That would be waaaay to hot for me, Linda! Too bad I can't send you some of our cool temps to help cool you off! Thanks.
Kind enjoyable today, we are having 30°C...
Fine capture Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: 30°C would be a bit too hot for me, Richard, but if you enjoy it, good. Merci.

Way too hot would be good, but I'm afraid rather unlikely given the present weather in the UK! Is this an early reminder of Christmas?!
Ginnie Hart: I don't do well with hot weather, Ingrid, so I feel quite lucky to live in cooler temps! And yes, Christmas is right around the corner, HA! smile

They are so cute, one of those would look great on my Christmas tree smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Cherry. You've just given me an idea for the next time we see him! smile
You probably bought this pair for Xmas!
Ginnie Hart: Actually, no we didn't, Wim. But when we go back, we'll have to get one. smile
I'd noticed the nights were drawing in and the pubs are exhorting us to book now for Christmas. Now Frosty's turned up, as well!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Christmas is almost always right around the corner, Graeme. smile
As usual, you have a great eye for doodads... smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Larry. Just call me a sucker for trivia. smile
A couple of cool characters for these hot summer days.
Ginnie Hart: That's what I thought, Michael. Thanks.
I love your photo. Much too hot here - the west is going up in flames again, but we're running out of water to fight them. Meanwhile the East is flooding... so weird!
Ginnie Hart: The fires in your west are devasting, Elizabeth. I pray for relief for you all! I wish we could all share what we have to equalize everything out all over the world! Thanks.
I really need this Ginnie as I just spent 2 weeks in Delhi, shooting in 48 degrees blistering heat! Actually suffered an episode of heat stroke! This is such a cute picturesmile Thank you!
Ginnie Hart: That´s hot, Pavan! Way too hot for me. I´m glad I could cool you off a bit!

Two multi-racial snowmen.
In S.A. it is winter. Night temp. +- -2 to 3 degrees Celsius. Day time temp. +- 15 to 21 degrees Celsius. Well, I'm sure you guys think these are summer temperatures.
Sadly our Christmas is in summer. Would love to experience a white Christmas.
Ginnie Hart: All cattiwampus, Elsabe, I know. But that´s what makes you special, of course.

Ginnie Hart: Cool off, then, Tede. Hopefully you´ll have respite soon!

Ginnie Hart: Funny is good every once in awhile! HA!
Lovely shot! Love the DOF and the bokeh in the background. But no, it's not too hot where I am :p
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Abby. Some are really suffering and I feel it for them. I'd much rather be too cold than too hot!
