Through the Lens Weekend

Through the lens I see light changing and small signs of Spring.

(scroll down for blog links you want - all are highlighted below photo in pink) Enjoy ^_^

ArtMuse is barking at her toys as she thinks they do not belong on the chair.

Recalling the warmer Autumn days on Cape Ann MA ~
 It is frigid here right now and more snow to come. Any signs of Spring near you?

Cape Ann MA is still wintry and Mourning Dove is in the sun fluffed up and getting warm for:

  2. Often good and sometimes necessary to look back at the golden fall light to get through the gray...

  7. To have a leader (especially a beautiful maiden) on the pilgrimage is most comforting to the wayfarers.

  17. Wonderful haiku and your photos are beautiful as always. I especially like your Top Shot for the week. It is a real keeper. Your ArtMuse is the most precious companion. Just love the look like...why in the world are you messing with MY toys.

  18. That's a lovely light framed by the trees Carol. "Woof, woof, give me my toys back".

  19. Beautiful autumn shot and a gorgeous orchid. I bet she is wondering why someone put her toys on the chair. Happy weekend, Carol.

    ReplyDelete
  20. That's funny that art muse didn't want her toys on a chair. hahahahaha I love your little dog. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh gosh your dog is a gem. I love your dog!! Heidi, my corgi, would also bark if her toys were somewhere strange. She is also sneaking into the boys rooms to find "new" toys. HOWEVER, if she finds one that she decides is hers, she feels no remorse taking them outside to chew. I found a note pad and pen in her mouth as she tried to get it through the doggy door yesterday! HA!

    Thanks for sharing your life...

    Happy Paint Party Friday!
    I'm late...Happy Saturday!

  25. I've just fallen in love with orchids. I found a lovely, miniature one this winter at Trader Joe's and have gone back to get two more. They are so interesting and add some much needed color into my life during winter.

  35. Your dog and its toys. Our dogs get concerned when we put there toys where they don't belong also. I love your haiku and the orchid splendid.

  36. March and April are usually our snowiest months, so a proper spring is a long way away. But the days are long, and it's certainly warmer (although not this weekend). Nice shots!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Our March is coming in like a lion and April is nowhere in sight to play this role. The cold, the rain, the warning of icy conditions, have us fleeing into shelter preparations for those who might need help. Prayers are rising that electricity remains and shelters aren't needed after all.

  38. So very beautiful and what lovely dog you have :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Wonderfull the links card paradise, have a nice new wwek, beautifull post and fotos.

  40. March has brought a tempeature above zero, but snow has visited us once again. So no signs of spring, for Indiana that is quite common. What a beautiful haiku! Every time I see Art Muse I hanker for a dog, but with two cats, that's not likely. I love the image of a warmer day. My idea of Paradise is to live by a lake or river. Ahh!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Orchids are my favorite flower! I have only ever had one last for more than a couple of months. :( ArtMuse is adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  42. What a darling pup!! And of course the scenery and flowers are superb.

  47. Hi Carol,

    I can't help but notice the connection of colours and textures among your beautiful header and the first two photos today! The gold, russet, browns and olive greens of these images are so warm and calming. You live in a lovely landscape!
