Fare thee well, winter?

Winter seems to be waning —

I say ‘seems’ as this is Sweden and it can snow even in June!

Dogs.jpg

But I don’t think we will see scenes like this one again this winter:

With thick snow on the iced over lake.

It’s cold in the mornings,

So, if we are lucky,

We can still enjoy rim-frosted green lanterns

Greenlanterns.jpg

And diamond-studded

Golden fur.

    In our area Spring is generally cool and wet— Warm and dry hits us rapidly, when it comes. Always glad to see the dogs!

  11. First about my linkup to Our Wordl – ever since I have a Mac laptop, I have trouble with the perma links – it’s hit and miss – I don’t know why my url is “malformed”, but on the same page as “Oops no page found” underneath are my posts – this week “its “A Walk in the park.” If you know how to change it since you’re a wordpresser, please let me know:)
    The green lanterns are hard to overlook! Thinking of your long winters, I understand why they have that shape:):) Love your dogs in the snow – excellent shots as always!
