  1. great colour in these sarah. i haven’t been able to catch your posts for a couple of weeks and it looks like i have missed some real changes in the landscape and the colours that are catching your eye. beautiful.

    • Wow! A propos that conversation the other day I feel it appropriate to mention those are actually my two favorites of this post, by a significant margin.

  2. Some truly lovely shots, girl. I really liked the reflection one and of course the one with everyone’s favorite Muse.

  3. The branches in the river shot is excellent! Groovy rock find and picture! Yeah, that rock does kind of look like a grade school art project gone wrong but in a good way. Either that or some half-baked soul was trying to make rock candy with actual rocks. Waiting with eager anticipation for your pictures from RedBubble!!!!!!

  4. Wow, Sarah – these are some of your very best – maybe it’s the contrast of spring life against the dead of winter, but whatever it is, you really hit it out of the park. The river shots – #14 and #16 especially.

    • Thank you so much, Lois! This is such an interesting time of year when traces of winter clearly remain. For a while every new thing popping to life is singularly exciting.

  5. Hi Sarah, you’ve given us sixteen treasures, when just one of them would be a spectacular gift. My fave, # 16. Thank you.
