Hope for Spring/Weekend Reflections

Spring is coming. Spring is almost here!

 This time of year the yellow branches on willows excite me. Don't get me wrong: I DO love winter. But I am also looking forward to spring.

Spring tip toes into our neighborhood as well. The reflection in the water is so pretty. I was just trying to use an orange/blue combo and there you have captured it.

I get you, I'm the same way. I like winter but am ready for Spring.

Kate said...

One can only hope...Spring-bring it on!

Beautiful golden reflections against the hints of white and brown and that wonderful blue.

i love spring but am not looking forward to the time change that is a couple weeks away...

Always nice to experience the approach of spring as new life bursts forth upon the earth.

Re your question: We have a funny winter. It can be 80 degrees one day and 40 the next. We're now in the midst of our 3rd Canadian cold air blast and it will be cool for the next 3-4 days.

When I took the Panera Bread pic it was rather early in the afternoon and a little cool so most everyone was inside, although some were eating in the area in front of the restaurant.

I am looking forward to spring too. The willows are just starting to get that yellowish look.

Zmiana koloru gałęzi wierzby dodaje wiary, że wiosna nadchodzi. Zdjęcie jest śliczne. Pozdrawiam.
Changing the color of willow branches adds the belief that spring is coming. The picture is beautiful. Yours.

Your photo is GORGEOUS. I'm soooo ready for spring, though I know our winters are not as harsh as some.

I love all the different colouring in this photo. Beautiful capture. I also look for the yellowing of the willow trees this month. A sure sign that it's soon spring! Have a great weekend. Pamela

i posted winter colors today, too. :)

Judy said...

I will take your word for it that the willows are yellowing... Even after the plough has been by, I can't get that far, to see for myself...

March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb... or so the saying goes!

LONDONLULU said...

Yes to Spring! I too don't mind winter, but by late Feb/early Mar, well, let's hope it ends soon:)

RedPat said...

Lovely soft reflections!

Kay said...

After all the greys of winter, those splashes of willow color are most welcome! This is a grogeous shot. The reflections are wonderful, love the perspective.

Snowcatcher said...

We are looking very much forward to spring, too. Blue skies and water poking through lake ice, just as you have pictured! Bring it on!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Pretty sky and water scene! I am so ready for spring. It seems far off when everything is covered in white right now.

Valerie said...

That golden reflection does indeed look warming and full of promise! Here in South Australia we have just experienced our hottest Summer on record, so are looking forward to the coolness and rich colours that come with Autumn.

Jack said...

A lot of optimists are posting about spring today. It is a visual Rorschach.

Sylvia K said...

Yes, there are lots of us thinking about spring today and I love your gold reflection on the water! Beautiful and promising! Enjoy your weekend!!

Stephanie said...

I am looking forward to spring and longer daylight.

George said...

I'm not a big fan of winter, but I really like this beautiful scene.

Isn't it wonderful.

Yours came sooner, hoping for our cherry blossoms in our lake! The yellows complement the landscape!
