An Almost-Spring Neighborhood Walk

click to enlarge

A few days ago blue skies drew us outside for a long-overdue stroll around the neighborhood. With cameras in tow and at the ready we set out on our favorite loop that includes a couple of good hills and plenty of pretty views. Funny thing... every single picture I took was a flower shot or had blue sky. Guess I'm more ready for spring than I thought!

Be sure to visit Mary at Little Red House for more mosaics.

  2. Oh my word...I keep forgetting that while I will still have to wait a couple more months for all these lovely flowers so many others have already begun enjoying...so glad you're all sharing the joy.

  8. Ah, warm weather and balmy breezes! We had started to warm up and my early azaleas are blooming, but now there's rain mixed with little pellets of white. That's the Pacific Northwest for you! Thanks for dropping by my place this morning -- and yes, Chihuly designs and someone else does the creating. That's how I'd have to work too, since I don't have a smidge of expertise.
