Things That Float My Boat



A taste of warm weather this weekend has us. . .



 Enjoying some Chair Time . . .



Seeing signs of the promise of Spring. . .






Sunning ourselves like the birds. . .




 Watching the mini waves roll in. . .






Wishing you signs of spring wherever you are~

      We have enjoyed wonderful springlike weather here in Missouri the past week also. Love it!
      Your photos are fabulous, as always, Mary!

      Looks like everyone is having a beautiful day Mary! Have to chuckle at the birds, I was wondering why that one little guy was off to the right, guess he just knows his place in the pecking order:@)

      If there’s anything more soothing than sitting by the water, it’s sitting by the water with a dog in one’s lap.
      Lovely spring photos.

      Have you seen my signs of Spring post yet, our bud photos are almost identical! We now have a cold spell forecast so I am concerned about the daffodils and the blossom. I hope your Spring weather is set to last.

      girl you have been floating my boat since day one with your very first post. i love all your photos, you are a master at creating, seeing and sharing beauty.

      your little bugs look so adorable tanning themselves, or should i say bleaching? they are spotless, i think that’s why i get black dogs, they are pig pens in the country~ who am i kidding, ME TOO!

      your buds are so promising, ready to burst forth any minute… but your bird shots… the one in flight on the roof shot, like hollywood magic to get it so perfect and symmetrical.

      thanks for keeping me afloat, i am overly buoyant to begin with, but you are always a life raft for my sore eyes…

      What a lovely post! What welcome signs of spring!!! We are expecting eight inches of snow tonight and 50mph winds! No spring here yet…but we are looking forward to it!

      Love the photos of your girls!!

      Beautiful photos. I’m wondering where you live because your buds are father along than ours. In fact, I wonder if we won’t have a little more winter before spring is really here in full blaze.

    10. February 20, 2011 at 9:29 pm

      Oh, those budded trees were the best. Not that far here yet, but maybe soon!

    11. February 20, 2011 at 9:31 pm

      Looks like Heaven there right now!

      Wonderful signs of spring and your darling little dog looks very happy for springy days, too.

      I was impressed with the open water. The ice on the lakes around here is 18 inches thick. Love the views in your mosaics. Lovely.

      This totally floats my boat too. I would love to be sitting in one of those chairs right about now as the day was just beginning.

      I wish I could figure out how to follow on wordpress blogs. I always love this blog when I visit here.

    32. February 23, 2011 at 8:55 am

      BTW, that was me up there. I have no idea why this just linked me to some other blog with the same name. Odd… Trying again.

    33. February 23, 2011 at 10:00 am

      Great shots of the sea gulls and transparent water.
