Dreaming



"Awake, thou wintry earth --
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!"

Mary I have found your site and only looked back over Jan's photos but that is enough for me to say that you are a brilliant photographer...thank you for the joy this viewing has given me.
And the words you couple with the photos are perfectly matched. Would you be willing to share the source of your quotes?
Thank you for a vicarious slice of winter

This is just scrumptious! Gorgeous, soft. An early spring is teasing us here in NE Texas - tulip trees are blooming, pear trees not far behind. I am dreaming it stays.

Love this MUCH!
