  4. Have a wonderful week full of dance and long walks along the coast, with a nip of Spring in the air, without too many sneakers in the water following the happy Art Muse dogs's tail...Phew probably should have put a full stop in earlier! :)

  16. It must be cold to go home w/o a shoe this time of year. :)

    The sunflower is gorgeous, and I love your haiku/brush painting.

    That door stop must be very heavy!! It is cool though, much more interesting/fun to look at than the doorstops we have today.

  28. I love this series Carol… I too am looking forward to sun and sunflower days. Your haiku is so beautiful penned with the fish swimming along the surface. Thanks for sharing the love up-close with I Heart Macro:-)

  29. I saw a lot of light and few shadows today! Seems like every picture made me smile. The yellow daisy (?) macro was maybe my favorite because yellow flowers just always make me happy. But who wouldn't smile at that pretty doorstop -- so many memories attached. (And really I'm so glad you used it -- even though I know with Art Muse Dog you never truly run out of critters to photograph!) And the haiku was wonderful. I eat a lot of fish. Dumb fish I guess.

  30. Great share Carol .
    Of course I love your sweet dog to pieces :)

  31. Happy Weekend, Carol!

    The Antique Door Stop looks like a Boston Terrier, is it?

    We are dreaming of warmer weather in South Dakota too! We had a high of 21* today.

    Those who follow the Japanese Proverb probably have a lot of fun.

    1. Miyako ~ I am honored that you love my images and that your husband liked the haiku as I did not grow up learning the brush strokes that other cultures learn from childhood and the same for the haiku ~ thanks for your very supportive comments ~ xxx
