Spring Time Greens ~~ Soft and Muted!



This morning our steps had a new spring to them and 
the air had a new fragrance!


Discovering off the path delights
seemed imminent today!


Jim has his eye on something,
should I investigate with him?


Without a doubt ~~~ YES!!


Water, a brooklet, a mini-stream so still.
This needs christening!


 Aaahh that feels better!
The water refreshes me and 
prepares me for my daily constitution!


Follow the brook,
almost like dancing on the living floor!
I love it!


Hurry Jim!
I smell something very familiar.


Just down this slope,
I have Doodle radar
and 
I know exactly what it is!


Doggies, Puppies, my furryends!


Many, many 4 leggers ~~ they are everywhere today!


I'm super invigorated now
my furryends are such a cool bunch
here at the park.
This song by Jesse Cook
exemplifies my excitement.
Have a listen!

  2. Sophie, I made a spelling error, and posted before I checked the words. You have spring beneath your feet, showing in all the greenery, and a spring in your steps too!! And great fun to find friends when out walking. Greetings to all from Jean.

    1. You are not the only one with mis-spelled words Jean ~~ my Daddy Ron has super fast fingers on a small type board, aaarrrggghhh!! Needless-to-say he's ALWAYS correcting!!

      Spring fever has arrived in it's soft, green, lines! The world of the "brrr" is in the rearview window. But alas a slight hint of 0 C degrees will touch us on Sunday morn! Blankets please!!

  3. We love how everyting is green in your neck of the woods. Can you believe that snow is predicted for this weekend up here? This is just crazy!
    I can see you had a wonderful time with your dads and your 4 legged friends. If you get too worked up playing you can go take a roll in that lovely stream to cool off!

    1. 99% of our world is Spring Fever, but Sunday morn the temperature will be 0 C degrees. Just like you, it's about time for this foolishness to stop!

    1. Not a tall order by any means,
      subtly enjoying all the greens,
      of the grasses and trees
      up and over my knees
      dousing myself
      quickly in the nearest watering hole!

  15. Those first pictures look like you landed in a fairy tale land. So very pretty, as are you, SophieDoodle. Do you ever see Moca, BTW, the German shephedr dog? Hope I got the name right, you know how much I like those dogs..

    1. We haven't seen Mocha for quite some time, Inger. She doesn't live very far from me, only about 3 miles away. The last time we ran into her, she was walking on the beach and I was walking on the other side of the grassy dunes. You know I could pick up her scent on the wind. OVER THE DUNES I CHARGED!!!! We had a great romp!! You never know when surprises like this will happen again!

      I feel like we are in a fairy tale book sometimes IngerDoodle!! The trails are so quiet and ethereal at certain times of the day. We love and we do not take the place for granted, ever!!

      Sophie and Ron here!
