It's That Time!!


  As many of you remember, this time last Sunday I was running all over my yard photographing Birmingham's big snowfall!  Well here we are a week later,  and the temperatures are in the 70's. What's  more fun when the weather warms up than taking your shoes off and getting your piggies in the nearest fountain!  I caught this brother and sister doing just that on Friday at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.  The joys of springtime!!

That looks like fun! I wish it were warm enough to do that here. I just drove home while a snow/hail mixture was falling from the sky.

This is a site you wold NEVER see here, unless it's in the 90's. Despite their tumultuous history of invasions and battles, Serbs are afraid of...the cold! And those stones are cold, right, even if it is in the 70's.

Great shot though--I would have joined them.

Cute, chubby little legs. I was having drinks with a couple of bloggers the other day, and we said, "Sure wish Virg were here." So, ya gotta.

Fun to be like a child with happy abandon. We wait anxiously to dip our feet. So, was the water chilly on your feet?

Tootsie toes! I love those walk-in fountains. We're having the same gorgeous weather here, pretty soon I'll be back at the beach. Love your new icon. Is it a self-portrait or did your friend take it. The white shirt looks like summer to me.

'70's! You have to be kidding me. Cute. Now your next assigment is a doggy shaking his watery coat in the fountain image. Great practise of movement. We have rain, but no such temp.

Virginia said...
