Tentative spring

It’s still cold here

And there’s ice on the lake.

O and flower

But Oscar took me for a walk

To find the first tentative signs

Of spring.

Oscar and snowdrops

For more hope, please visit: Camera Critters.

I’m fighting a heavy cold so please excuse me if I don’t get round to visiting you.

  10. HHHMMMmmm… maybe I should ‘borrow’ Oscar to help me find autumn downunder?!?!

  11. Oscar certainly found at least a little Spring. I hope your cold gets better soon – they make a person feel vile, out of all proportion to the severity of the illness don’t they.
    Off topic. If you ever have any contact with Marie, can you tell her that I have been thinking of her and LG and hoping that things in their world are going well?

    Your snow really left quickly didn’t it? Even if there is still ice on the lake, the ground is giving up winter. Oscar is adorable.

    First one perfection -the moment captured, Oscar the purveyor of hope -definitely worth a GRUNT of monumental proportions. Hope Spring rushes in, always a good remedy for the cold.

    April 21, 2013 at 17:09

    Well, Oscar looks ready for another season of swimming soon. Love the Snowdrops Fiona. Aren’t they the cutest. They should last for a while considering the cool temps.

    April 22, 2013 at 23:04
