With ears flapping

Spring is due here any moment…

I can tell by the grey days we’re having

Simson jetty

When branches drip

With rainy pearls,

Rain pearls copy

And catkins

Revel in melting snow.

Catkin copy

The little yellow suns of the crocus

Patiently wait for some sun

As do we.

Patience

In the meantime, I enjoy the orange pop of a boat —

I like how the lines on the boat match

The waves on the lake.

Orange pop

And when another hail or snowstorm rushes in

We meet it with ears flapping

And hair flying – in the hope that spring will soon arrive.

Ears flapping

    “With rainy pearls, And catkins

    Revel in melting snow.”

    GORGEOUS shots, Fiona! And the one of the crocus is stunning!

    I love how in that first shot of Ruby on the dock, it looks as though the dock is actually floating!

    Have a super week, my friend!
