It's a beautiful day -

"A Walk in the Park I"

We're expecting two more days of significant accumulations of snow. That being the case, why am I posting images of spring? I suppose to continue the facade that my favorite of the four seasons is right 'round the corner ... (sigh!), again.

Oh, believe! The spring is coming and I believe it's going to be as beautiful as in your pic. I like this collage texture.

Thanks so much, Roxanne. I'll drop by your place soon if there's tea and cake. :)

SusuPetal:
I do believe, Susu. So much so that I've packed a picnic basket. Unfortunately, I got hungry and ate the egg salad sammiches. Oops! There goes the last of the merlot! :O

It's always good to surround oneself with others positively expectant of the season of the new. :)

Another awesome image. I would love to sit it that gazebo and listen to the birds in those trees.

I don't see any disentegration collaborations bundles hanging from the tree...

It feels like spring. Here too. Even though we have water today, in fact, just the same colors as on your picture.

I bet that this pastoral view is beneath 2 or 3 feet of snow this morning. That means great snowshoeing on the nearby trails though.

Let me see, bundles? Oh yes, I chickened out yesterday but I'm working on one! :)

hpy:
I have to admit that the feeling of spring is mostly in my mind at this point. Since last Friday we've had almost a foot of snow and some places got over 3 feet! There's more coming as I write this and if we get a fast melt, again, we'll have water too!

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Laurel. I'll use it again but, as I say, probably not too much. :)
