  15. Ah! What a joyful post Carol. All those wonderful paintings and photos and than those haiku in the middle of your post, like it's the heart of your post. I think that's true, as I think back to other posts I always find the haiku in the middle, in the heart of the post. Thank you.

  34. If you have Pete and Paul, you need to have Mary too. I think my Ms. Wee posed for your blue and gold, hmmmmmm? The magnolia tree intrigues me. They are blooming here too, but I have never seen one without green leaves with the blooms. i think my fav, though, is Art Muse Dog's ears! :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. If that sky were tinted grass-green instead of sky-blue, those clouds would look like melting snow! :-)

    I love the water reflection photo (which wouldn't be complete without the Art Muse Dog ears, of course!) - such soft and pretty effects. And who doesn't love a singing bird or a flowering tree? Such lovely, peaceful photos.
