Spring on the River...

With so many wildflowers in bloom lately I have spent my time looking down at the ground. A few days ago as I was driving home from work I realized that the leaves were nearly full grown. In this shot of the Boquet River you can see that several trees are in full-leaf, while some are not quite there yet.

It seems like we are looking forward to warm weather in May, then all of a sudden it is the 4th of July, then it's August and school is almost ready to start for another year. With the speed of life in mind I'm enjoying so much green around me this year. I'm savoring every leaf and flower! Here is some springtime green for you to enjoy!

Time certainly does fly by and sometimes so fast it make one's head spin. It really is great when you can stop and just drink in nature's beauty. That is one nice river you have there. While I have never been there, I have flyfishing friends who fish the Boquet every year.

Very serene images, Cedar. Nice!

How beautifully peaceful and lovely. These photos just fill my eyes. I love rivers--I'm so glad to live near one.

You know--I've often wondered about faery cottages. I think they are built along the edges of the pathways and beneath the ferns andsuch--only to see them, one must garner a sprinkle of faery dust. (grin) And so, I see them in my dreams.

Oh how GORGEOUS!! I would love to splay myself out on a floaty raft and just lay there for a day. I could sure use it right now. Thanks for the mini-vacation and peace of mind. :) (And always, always, your wonderful support over at "my" place. You're a DEAR friend!)

These scenes are why I love river fishing. Flyrod in hand I wade slowly up the stream, every bend bringing a new and more beutiful vista.

Tammie Lee said...

Yes yes yes, the green is lovely and your photos show it! We still have more spring, then summer, then fall.. I plan to enjoy each and every day!

Beth Niquette said...

(((hugs))) You are such a dear.

I think I told you how much I love this post, too.

Don't go too fast!

I always remind myself to LOOK UP! I have a bad habit of staring at the ground too.

On our weekend excursion I was reveling at how wonderfully green everything was. Paired with the brilliant blue sky....it was glorious!
