I so miss spring and summer by this time of year. I get depressed and very sullen. I need green, sunshine and birds singing. NEED! Thanks for the pic's. They make my eyes happy.

Mary, We are now 1/3 of the way through February, and the coldest (statistically) month of the year is done. Plus, every day has more daylight than the day before. Yep, spring is coming! It'll get to you before it gets to me. ;-)

I sooo enjoyed this lovely landscape. The bright sun makes the lush green and yellows just sparkle. Your use of texture is a very nice enhancement of a nice image.

Really enjoying the treatment and processing done on this photo.

I'm ready for the spring to get here as well. Winter can be so drab.

The softness of summer days
borne on willow winds
is yet to come___
though hearts leap ahead
to the sunfired grass
of july morns.

I really like that combination of images. Reminds me of some vintage wall stencilling in my parent's dining room when I was a kid. The guy who did the border let me apply the paint through one of the floral stencils. How '50s!

Love the picture! Feel like I could just lay down in that grass and feel the warm sun on my face and toes.
