Free At Last



All around, life reconvenes.
Winter's long grasp is broken.

balmy breezes and
spring breaks
open windows and
dining al fresco
screen door slams on the back porch

orange blossoms and
baseball
flip-flops and
short shorts
mockingbirds in the morning

Hello, Spring!
So glad you're back!

Oh I'm glad too, though my spring isn't as evocatively sprung yet as the one you describe so nicely. And a great image too.

What a soft blue picture. So striking with the tan legs. Loved it.

You got her before us! I'm still waiting for her to come AND STAY. She dropped in for a few days, then winter returned. We are in chill mode.

March winds,
April showers,
Bring forth .....
May flowers

Thank you for your lovely pictures!

April showers here in northern England, but with the expectation of sunnier days and beautiful May flowers we rejoice in the present moment and the good things to come.

In my corner of the world I am happy for the coolness of Autumn :)

I have a feeling that I've commented on this loveliness before ;)

You know how it goes... sometimes I visit without commenting, due to lack of time mostly, and return another day and can't remember if or what I had to say :)

I'm smiling and it's not even Spring here as I know I have said.
