A delight for the eyes …
nice… yes, melt!
Mud mud mud everywhere! Melt away
Mud! Beautiful! EXCEPT when it follows torrential rain and 32 degree C heat
nice words to go with an imaginative image – it goes with your motto ( i lack for a better word here)-where observation and imagination meet nature in poetry
A great shot and one I have been looking for. Well done
Yes, mud: too often we want to see only what’s “pretty,” but the wider view is much richer than that. As you report.
Superb shot !
lol…yes it is that time of year…great photo!
Your words and images are perfectly attuned, but, as the last commenter noted, never sentimental. Thank you for your daily offering, which helps me center myself in the morning.
wonderful layers of detail!
Don’t forget the melted ice and snow that fills the streams and rivers! I miss the snow that I had when I lived in Pa. Have been living in Houston thirty years now!
You’ve added a whole new dimension to mud season!
love this image! Saw very similar melting on my walk this morning.
yes, the slow melt is starting

I do too! I have no idea where it went. I don’t always have thoughts to add but I always love the content!
it really looks like spring – nice shapes
How I love those shards of ice !
profound, love it! 🙂
Beautiful photo and poem. Mud is not so beautiful when you have two big dogs out playing, though! 🙂
Beautiful! I’d love to re-blog this tomorrow.
Catherine – you are welcome to.
I’ll take the mud! Love this image!
Your work is meditative. Brilliant.

Here’s a lovely poem from over on Leaf and Twig. Are you wearing purple today?
An ugly time of year is made beautiful
I really love this poem Catherine. It captures everything about spring.
Short and very sweet
Beautiful image and words.
Lovely – and so clear i can feel the cold!
Perfect transient sculpture.
Wonderfully composed shot.
Thanks for the “Like” over at “The Gooseyard.” From your photography it looks like you enjoy being out in the winter landscape as much as I do!
I like the composition of this photo.
Lovely image… and the thought of mud… primordial at that… nice to feel spring!
ahh, love it!!!!
primordial? yes, I think that’s right – now that you have said.
So well said!
