A Walk in the Park

Virginia's winter has been long and cold and snowy with one LAST snow storm on St. Patrick's Day.


But spring really is just around the corner . . . where a walk in the park awaits.  I'm tired of the whites and grays and browns of winters, so how about a little color?


 







I'm linking up with Kim Klassen today for Texture Tuesday where the theme is Color. I used Kim's textures, Canvas Magic and Pin It Only 7 to subtly enhance today's pictures. Kim is always a wonderful source for inspiration and instruction in all things creative.

    1. Hi Michelle, Looks as though you and I are both nature lovers. I popped by to see your photos. The close up of the butterfly is gorgeous (did you use a macro lens). And the photo, family times, in lovely sepia tones made for sweet memories.
