Snowy Spring Day!

 Queen Anne's Lace
empty of seed pods now in the company of
*fresh fallen snow.*
I walk searching for signs of Spring. 
A time for a new cycle of life to begin..
after all it is the second day of Spring!!
A face of innocence ..
my walking companion
waits patiently as I take a few photographs.

No signs of fresh foliage or blooms to be found
only cut up logs on the forest floor..
Humm.. should I or shouldn't I bring one home..
Nature inspired elements now the
HOTTEST TREND in interior decorating!

 Precious New Beginnings!
Braving the cold tiny Snowdrops with
  new life beneath *today's blanket of snow!
My companion & I follow this quiet path daily.
One that winds peacefully through the woods
and provides me with unexpected
"In every walk with Nature one receives more than he seeks"
John Muir
Happy Spring!
love and light naturegirl

Anna-Even though it is snow covered it is still pretty. I am so anxious for Spring as I know you are, too- xo Diana

What a beautiful walk you have! I love the quote and wholeheartedly agree. Brave crocuses!

Beautiful. Our spring here in Texas is getting HOT and it's really dry.

Misty said...

Thanks for your nice comment on my blog. :)

You have a lovely blog; the pictures are interesting and make one thoughtful. The dog and cats are special...I am an animal lover.

Spring is REALLY almost here. :)

No wonder you usually go to the warmer parts of the world. I didn't know you still had so much snow.

We have rain and more rain mixed with a bit of rain.

Your furry friend is cute.

No signs of Spring here either Anna, just snow and very frosty nights and no even the weather forecast can't find Misses Spring yet. It is an unsual long and strong Winter for us and the longing for warmer temps and garden delights grows stronger day by day. I know you don't like Winter very much and usually go to Arizona for several weeks at this time of the year and don't return home before April, right? So I wonder what has happened this season that you didn't go?
Now tell me are you sure that are crocusses in that photo under the snow? They rather look like snowdrops to me. I can spot some crocusses and snowdrops under the snow here too and they give me a bit of hope that it can't be long anymore now. Fingers crossed Spring will come soon to all of us!
Until then stay warm my friend!

What a lovely series of pictures – I really like them.

Even if we don't have snow here at the moment (which might probably change this weekend), there is no sign that spring will come soon! And we are all longing so much for spring - winter has been too long this year.
We have been to Provence last weekend hoping to find spring there, but it was also very cold and windy.
I wish you a wonderful weekend, hugs, Monika

Lovely images and Rambo is a cutie! No signs of spring here. We are late bloomers here. Snow is being predicted for tomorrow. I am not so sure when Spring will arrive. Wishing you a happy weekend!

Rose said...

Beautiful photos, Anna! The last one would make a beautiful Christmas card, but my favorite is Rambo--such a sweet face.

Janice Thomson said...

Can't wait to see a GREEN blade of grass but alas still a foot of snow...beautiful photos.
How are you Anna?

Pamela Gordon said...

What a pretty place to enjoy a walk with your precious Rambo. I love the photo of the cut logs and I definitely think you should bring them home, or at least one chunk, to cut up for candle stands. ;0)

Beautiful is all that you share. Much love and many blessings. Love Jeanne

Cat said...

So pretty, but cold. I'm just back from Scotland where it is freezing.

Deb said...

Rambo is gorgeous! the perfect walking companion ♥

kitty kat said...

You are oh so lucky to live in such a beautiful place! I would love for our cats (and our visiting cats) to be able to have just a little bit of nature. Unfortunately, they have to stay inside until they find homes- some mean humans have threatened them and thats why they are residing with us.

Such beautiful pictures- makes me want to take a walk down that path.

Lorna said...

As always, such beautiful photos and words and heartfelt sentiments! Thank you, Anna :)
