Cloud sat posed next to the bouquet of flowers, with a look on her face like she demanded her photo be taken. It’s good to stop and admire the flowers sometimes!
Every year I like spring more and more. It’s hard to stay sad when pretty little flowers are poking up through the ground, and the world explodes with color.
This was a day at the very end of winter a couple of years ago. These pictures have been sitting in my drafts for a while now, and it seemed time to post them. This is from another time. A bit of a sadder time, but that’s ok. The day was warm, after many months […]
