Notice that green grass! It goes with yesterday's willow tree as hopeful signs of spring. Stayed tuned for more such signs.

This tree has captured the imagination of many all over the world for centuries. Here are just a few! Poets have written about it, from Robert Herrick (To the Willow Tree) in the 17th century to William Carlos Williams (Willow Poem) in the 20th. And for children, there is Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows, from which AA Milne took his play Toad of Toad Hall.

The shadows of the bird, grasses and sedge only struck me when I cropped the original photo. I am grateful for the digital world when a photograph keeps on giving!
Enjoy more shadows and reflections this weekend by visiting this sites:
Hey Harriet's Shadow Shot Sunday

We heard him before I could see him to take his picture. He was singing away as happy as we were with the week-long string of days with blue skies. Since you have heard me complain regularly and probably too frequently about the lack of such skies, I must now report on the lack of clouds. Bill the Channel 8 weatherman says we have had a record-setting number of sunny days this week -- five in a row. Whew! Seek more blue skies from around the world at Skywatch Friday.
P.S. You might remember that this is the same guy who looked so cranky just a few weeks ago.
