  1. I am so excited that you can see earth and green piercing the soil! … here the snow is still blanketing everything AND it is only temporary. Thanks for sharing the love up-close with I Heart Macro Carol:-)

  2. I am so glad you are here as I was missing you! Yes. Your haiku... says so much. We must have the yin and yang. I strive to live in that curve between... I have been fascinated of late by koi. I love your sketches. And as to the winter snow... Ugg boots really do say it all, don't they! Have a good and cozy weekend Carol. Thank you for your gifts here. XO

  9. Knowing the circling, that the 'round and round' is just one more round reaching upward,
    it is soothing to the spirit for each wave falls back to the beautiful ocean...
    Have a lovely weekend in Cape Ann. x

  10. Very nice post Carol. All those wonderful photos and your sketch of the Koi is so beautiful. Thank you for your daily effort to share your haiku with us all. By the way ... a great haiku you've shared today.

  11. I know those daily disappointments; I'm sure we all do. The question is: Will they over take us or will we overtake them as we go round and round?

  24. HI Carole I do love your sweet dog.

    ReplyDelete
  25. It's nice to see the bits of green peeking out from the soil. Maybe that means we can put out Ugg's away soon.

    Artmuse Yorkie looks like he has had enough to the camera, my cats get like that too sometimes.

    Have a great weekend!

  31. My Uggs said Ugg this winter and fell apart. They lasted three three winters though, so fair enough.

    ReplyDelete
  32. That's funny the UGG picture! Your haiku seems a little 'down' for you...hope it is just because of too much winter (not that that wouldn't be enough reason for me to be a bit down).

    ReplyDelete
  33. A nice collection of photos. But I love the one of your dog the best! :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. What a great, fun group of images!! The ugg comment is priceless, and I like that "fluffy" dove!!

    I just read something about goldfish - if put out in the wild (which they shouldn't be) they can grow up to a foot in length.

    Be well, Jules
