I hope the snow has departed your area. If not, the sun and shadows shown here will remind us that Spring is not that far off! Your doggies are so nice, posing for the shadows with enthusiasm (both had a haircut!). Such warm views!

Stunning, shadowy scenes in the first two photos! Especially love the sense of quiet in the first photo! But I must admit that I love the last photo of the dogs on their shadowy verandah! Sam is such a handsome character!

Absolutely love the first shot Sylvia!
Great shadows for the day!

love the first photo- I wouldn't mind being transported there! I've been remiss lately in posting comments on your and others blogs-I apologize-we've been consumed with packing as in two weeks we move 350 miles south! Whew.

I love these latest offerings of yours, Sylvia. The dogs are wonderful of course (yes, I am a dog person!), but the second photo is my favourite.
Enjoy your Sunday!

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
