Sunday Walk

Today was the first I have gone for a walk without a jacket,
so spring is really here.
I took the dogs around the far side 
of the marsh,
past where the coltsfoot are blossoming.
The patch is getting larger!
Some of the pussywillows are finished blooming,
but not all of them.
Annie kept saying "Come on in, the water's fine".
There were a lot of the trees coming into leaf
or bud.
The next image is red elder, in bud.
Jake was starting to say we had walked far enough.
But we were not all the way around the marsh yet...
We went past a couple of old fence posts,
and admired the tiny leaves in the grass.
About this point, Jake's hip was unable to hold him, and I had to carry him a ways. Good thing he only weighs 29 pounds...
Also a good thing we were almost home.

Så fina bilder du visar på den fina våren. Vi har inte så varmt än så jag kan vara utan jacka. blåser kalla vindar och det skall bli regn idag.
Ha en fin vecka hos dig
Kram Meta

Hi Judy,
So glad you came by for a visit as now I can visit with you. We were also out and about yesterday without a jacket or sweatshirt. So nice to feel the warmth of the sun. I love to photogrpah the snow but happy to see it go. I love your bud photo's..and Jake was lucky you could carry him. I also admire your watercolor photo's. That's so cool.
