A sunny Sunday! Hanging out in our town....

Having lots of "good" energy this morning, we attended some church services....

Before heading to our award winning library (photo above) in the early afternoon, we walked around a local park. Many people were out walking and walking their dogs, others were playing tennis or shooting basketballs! It is almost a mile if you walk the trail around the park...being winter, the flower beds are mostly resting....we saw some nandina, some ferns. One end of the park has a spring and a "castle" of fantasy shapes for children to climb was designed by local artist Frank Williams.

In a few months, the bare trees will come to life with white blossoms and the flower beds will bloom again....all with the help of our wonderful city parks crew!

As we reached our car, I looked down and found a crow feather right in my path...I considered that to be a good omen for my creative spirit. [Yes, I will be doing pages in my art journal before the day ends!!!]

Off to Cut and Paste and draw and paint now.....that is after we have our spagetti and salad for supper.
I want to thank Julie (Celtic Lady) for giving me a special award.....and once I have some art journal pages to post, I will post the award also!!! Thanks, Julie!

OH a crow feather - that is a good omen. I love that picture of the crow too. Did you do that?

Isn't "near spring" wonderful - that wonderful warm day that surprises us. We had one today too - only got to about 45 but in a sunny, protected spot you could smell and feel the promise of spring - and we saw pussy willows bursting today.

Pussy willows are a favorite!

Well it is lovely - and just the right thing at this time. Last night I dreamed I found a crow feather and a small white feather - a bit smaller than a crow feather - have to ponder that dream some today.

What beautiful photos! We have snow and howling winds so a Sunday walk on a nice day would be lovely!

Well another blasted day of sunshine and eighty degree weather here. I am not a summer girl, and the sunshine is good. But it time I leave the land of the sun and experience winter. lizzzy
