  3. Your photos of the snow and water are very beautiful - especially the first one. It looks cold but great by contrast with temps we are still getting out here. I am just back from a walk with my dog - and wiping the perspiration off my face as it drips down!!

  21. Oh boy - those ice melting shots are amazing! The pond near me is still frozen - just the little streams flowing into it are melting. I think {fingers crossed} that after this weekend we'll have turned the corner!

  24. Brrr is right. We're slated for a high of 84 today. It's supposed to hit 91 on Thursday and Friday.
    I shiver just looking at your pictures. Still, we're having a drought here in California of epic proportions. Everything has it drawbacks.

  25. I always enjoy seeing that sweet puppy face at the end of your posts. Your captures here are just stunning, especially the breaking of the snowy ice- it's like I could feel my foot break it all away!

  31. It does look so cold where you are! I am always cold these days. My feet are cold as I type and I am wearing socks! We had a brief snow storm this morning and the sun is now shining bright. I am not a good cold weather person. I love the Springtime, I love the Autumn and I love your haiku! Happy wishes are being sent to you two! Thank you for sharing.

  32. Very nice photos I'm shivering look at them.

    Winter does have an austere beauty to it. I'm definitely ready for spring weather, though!

    I love that sweet dog. :)
