Your photos are fabulous Karen! Beautiful!
I think that Spring is my favorite season. The buds, the young animals, hope.

Lovely photos! I loved how the goose really looked like she was chattin' it up with her buds, LOL!

Beautiful flowers and garden photos. Where on earth did you find that stone wall with the semicircular stone arch? That looked like one amazing place!

Love that you used Vivaldi's Spring! :)

Oh! And I really appreciate the comments about my writing; I think that my other blog is too verbose for some people who prefer photos. I need to now learn how to take better pics! You are always an inspiration dearest! Anita

What a terrific post! Oh, how I'm longing for Spring....we had a BEEE-U-TI-FULLLLLLLL day here in the Northwest today. It was a flip-flop sort of day, but I need a pedi, so I opted for closed toe shoesies....

Color is on the way! YIPPPEEE!
