Spring

It is beginning to feel like Spring around here, even though there are no buds and flowers like these, from Mrs. Mel's blog, Fibermania, . . .



. . . nor wildflowers, like these from Rian's Pages . . .



In fact, when I drove to a nearby park, curious to see if a walk was possible, it really didn't LOOK like Spring at all.

The PathBut the main path was clear, if sometimes wet or icy and even if it didn't look like it, it sounded like Spring–the songs of birds filled the air–so, I walked.

It was a short one, only about a mile and a half--the unpaved paths turned out to be too muddy/snowy/icy for me and I turned back. I nearly had the place to myself: just me and the birds, the river, blue skies and sunshine.

More snow is in the forecast for next week, but today, it seemed that Spring ihad arrived, even if I was all bundled up and walking among bare trees, snow and ice.

The Park

Closer to home, a pair of geese stopped by to check on the state of the still-frozen pond.

Lovely walk through the park, even with all the snow. Or maybe it's because of it? We had a grey looking day today, but surprisingly warm, so I think spring is about to happen here too...

Beautiful pictures!

I've tagged you.
Here’s the idea:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
Have fun!
