Pictures from 2 walks

Pressed for time this morning, but I think all of these photos are beautiful.  The dogs below are dogs that we see on one of our dog walks near Phelps Grove Park….we call them “the ragamuffins” or “three musketeers”.  They are just so cute out in front of this cottage-style home.

As we were walking in the same neighborhood we saw signs of spring.

As I was lying on the ground getting this photo, other walkers stopped to admire the beauty of these little flowers….yes, I will actually sprawl out on someone’s driveway to get the perfect shot :)

Chirpy little birds high atop some brambly tree.

I don’t know what kind of bush or hedge this is….it is along the parking lot at Phelps Grove park….it has beautiful dried star shaped flowers…..none of my close-ups “took”, they were all blurry. The pictures below are from a dog walk in a patch of woods by our house…..right in the middle of the city…..yes, we walked the dogs through all of this brush with leashes on….it’s quite a feat, but they love it!


  1. Thank you for the breath of spring-fresh air. Still feet of snow on the ground here so seeing anything green makes me know Spring will really get here -- honest. Beautiful pictures.

  2. Beautiful pictures.
    I love all the texture on the trees in the woods.
    Great photography
