My spring walk

Mama and I have been dealing with spring snow this week, but today is partially sunny but still a little bit cold. We decided it would be a good day to put on our spring coats and go for a walk.

I brought along an empty Easter basket in hopes of filling it with things I found along the way that remind me of spring.
First I decide that any good spring basket needs to be filled with fresh green grasses, right?
Next I discover a tree that is beginning to sprout. I pull off just one sprout and add it to my basket.
Down near the river I gather some of the prettiest and roundest river stones that remind me of bird eggs and I add them too!
Along the walk we spot a beautiful shy hawk.
And I discover the first flowers of spring growing along a steep bank, yellow dandelions of course!
Happy spring! Enjoy your Easter basket!

Such a beautiful basket, Violet! Isn't spring such a wonderful season? And we all just adore your pink coat. Where did you get it? It's gorgeous.

Violet, you are just the cutest little thing! One question, what kind of camera was used to take these gorgeous pictures of you?

Wendy said...

You look so beautiful, Violet! And the weather looks so lovely! Everything is so dry here.

Hi Violet, Mama says I can post here! Where did you get your skirt? We look alike, so maybe you could tell me? :) And yes, what camera do you use?

Sophie said...

Violet's beautiful spring coat was commissioned from a friend of mine, Dollduds (Caroline). I always wanted a pink wool ruffle coat for Violet, and I was lucky enough to get the coat of my dreams! Thank you Caroline!

I used my husbands Canon manual for this shot.

Thanks for all the nice comments!
