Doing the salsa

Winter is at its best during early spring.

Bright snow

After days of warmth,

A fresh snowfall looks so pretty.

Dogs in snow

The hazel flowers covered in ice

Captured my imagination.

Icy hazel

Spring is about taking two steps back

And one step forward —

So we may as well enjoy the spring salsa.

Glitter

Just like Ruby

And Simson (that’s him goofing around in the background) do.

Goofing off

  20. Ruby and Simson are so cute in the winterland landscapes and *_* yep…you’re right:
    Let’s have salsa:
    “Spring, spring
    two step back,
    Spring, Spring
    one step forward
    two steps rainy…
    one step sunny;
    keep the rhythm…
    in Spring the salsa…” ( 🙂 What about my lyrics? Aren’t they funny? 🙂 …)

    Fiona, I love how you said that! Spring salsa…so clever!

    Beeeeautiful photographs! And I like that you’re still posting images of snow even though it’s spring, because you know me…I’m a snow lover!

    That final shot of the dogs made me smile and laugh because that’s exactly what I like to do after it snows…roll in it!

    Happy Monday, my friend!

  92. Our first golden loved to jump up with the kids on the big rock along our city trail. Our lab also learnt to jump up but didn’t like it as much. Our second golden is too goofy to sit still for that long and is a klutz. I find it amazing how many good photos you have with both of them — I can never seem to manage to get them both sitting and looking in the same direction. I love that early season swim — ours did this a couple of weeks ago but it was a warmish day so no steaming but still a wet mess at the back door!
    Enjoy your photos and your poetry.
