The Morning - Happy thing






The Sun - just touched the Morning -
The Morning - Happy thing -
Supposed that He had come to dwell -
And Life would all be Spring!
~Emily Dickinson

Another perfect melding of images and words.
Not many such photos here, the weather is moving in again. We are off to San Francisco tomorrow, to celebrate Mark's 40th birthday (hard to believe) and I don't think I will find many shots there, either.

Loverly pictures, great accompanying quote. And, I absolutely adore your header! I think, after following along with your blog these last few weeks, that I might have to make a trip to AZ and check it out for myself! ~karen

I read "Life would all be Spring", I see the bird perching in the morning, I just cannot describe my feeling.

Happy morning. It is now 7:15 am over here.

Excellent images for a desert spring. I'm thinking it looks pretty green after the last rains.

It's beautiful! I rediscovered E. Dickinson a few months ago with delight!

Yeah I can't wait for spring!
I didn't realize Robins were here.
We went out to the dam today--the water is still flowing! It was pretty! ;)

Lovely scenes, and I would love to walk right onto that trail in the second photo. I didn't know there were robins out there, though can't say I blame him for stopping by! =D
