Springtime Stroll

"Dude, I am so hungry,"said Jet.
I could eat anything
A carrot would be nice. You thought I was going to say I could eat a horse, how primitive. Where is the house and home we have eaten of yours?
Crocus
Warmer weather is just down the road. It warms for a few days and then bang, more cold. The snowflakes were huge the other day, but melted fast.


Green willow buds announce Spring


It was so cold, I walked the fastest I have ever walked through the labyrinth.

A Meadowlark slinks and shivers through the cold.
A rookery of Great Blue Herons, huge birds with a six foot wingspan.

  3. This is a nice post to glimpse the transition between seasons. Love the shots of the evergreen boughs and the pine cones. What is the labyrinth all about?

  4. I've never seen so many gb herons in one place. Supposed to be 75 here today, but it wasn't. Storms coming tonight, but I hope it won't affect Homeland or Billions.

  9. Spring weather is getting closer. Hopefully winter lets go soon. The herons seem to think it'll be warmer soon.

  10. Good Morning, Steve. Beautiful horses. I also enjoyed seeing the herons. Georgia is very warm for this time of year. I hate to think how hot our summer will be! Have a nice week.

  12. Good Afternoon and thanks for your visit re the clocks. How nice that you visited Germany. Did you see the Town Hall clock in Munich? I was fortunate to go with my Dad to Germany, Christmas 1980. He worked for Atlanta GA's mass transit system and the buses were mfg. in Germany! In addition to the clocks, I loved all the pastries! lol

  14. Good Morning Steve, Thanks for your comment about the candy dish. Your memory of your mother's leaded glass candy dish and needing "an invitation" brought back sweet memories. As a child, we had elderly neighbor sisters (Nora and Dora lol); Nora had a leaded glass candy dish with the melt in your mouth peppermint sticks. If she asked me, I was allowed to lift that heavy lid and grab a stick of peppermint! Have a great day.
