I am happy as a clam when I am being creative. Writing for this blog, expressing myself through haiku poetry, exploring nature and life through zen eyes, and dabbling in various art mediums, makes my spirit sing.

  1. Pussywillows are a popular etegami subject in the spring and your photo makes me itch to draw them. However we won’t be seeing them in our part of the country till April. ;p
    On the other hand, I’ve never seen those pretty white flowers, but I think I know what they’re called (snowdrops?) because so many of my western artist friends are painting them these days. Is it really already spring there? (sigh)

  2. oh i love love love pussy willows!!! wonderful images ;o)

  3. Wow….that’s incredible. Love the photos. And love the look of spring! Thanks for that! ;)

  4. Pretty!…but I’m glad I haven’t seen our flowers pop out like that yet. It’s too early.

  5. beautiful nature shots, margie. it’s fairly cold here, but no snow. lots of mud. must go running. i hope you are well and enjoying your art, friends, etc. happy thursday!

  6. I love those fuzzy catkins!

    • Okay, between you and T, I keep having to double check what I posted, LOL! That is a branch from a magnolia tree in our yard, believe it or not. That’s why I’m not sure where in the heck I am!

  7. the pussy willows are so pretty!

  8. You must have been flat to the ground to take that first photo??

  9. I can not believe those buds trying to pop! You are going to have little flower faces to snap very soon. Hurry up Friday! And Good Morning Margie :)

  10. Oh my goodness, it is almost spring in your pictures.;) We are not so far ahead just yet.;) Have a nice rest of the week,

  11. Hmmmm . . . if you shot these photos in MI, I say UNBELIEVABLE! Isn’t there supposed to be like 10 feet of snow in those parts at this time of year?????? Hmmmm…..

    • It IS unbelievable Cecilia! We gotten a couple of inches twice and it hardly lasts as the temps are so high for this time of year it melts. Last night it rained and today is misty, so, what little we have left will be gone again.

  12. fuzzy – aren’t they???? ~~~ : – )

  13. Could Spring be really testing the waters? Are those buds for real? Hope springs eternal.

  14. hmm, your garden?

You know how much I love to see your smiling faces here!
