a warm spring
arises in silence
refreshes the dance

    1. Thank you for your kind words Cathy. Our forecast for tomorrow is cooler weather with showers so it looks like we will temporarily regress as well. Stay warm and dry and much love to you and Finn xxx

  2. Nothing like a refreshing drink from a mountain stream – but Pearl will have to drop that ball first!
    We’ve had some lovely days here as well, but apparently it’s back to wet’n’windy tomorrow. March is a bit like Jekyll and Hyde!

    1. Thank you Annabelle and yes, the weather continues to change and we are keeping those doggie coats handy for now! We hope the warm weather will be back after tomorrow and much love to you, Millie and Pearl xxx


    1. Thank you for your kind words Denis. It looked as if Pearl wanted to have a drink without letting the ball roll into the water. A few steps later she found a suitable place to rest the ball while she had a drink ๐Ÿ˜‰


  3. God, Xenia, what an amazing photo! Sending you and your beautiful dogs much Light and love.. and blessings too.
    Thanks for always coming to my blog, it brightens my day (and tomorrow is my birthday!!) ~Debbie
