I loved the majestic beauty of mountains and forests reflected in the pond waters in these photographs.
It has been awhile. Still recovering from open heart surgery six months ago, finished full-time teaching and am now on summer break!
These are photos of water, and shapes, and cloud reflections, taken on my walk in February 2016.

Springtime Flowers Remembered!
With the rain and short days of winter it is good to remember that spring will come again!
Yellow daffodils and red tulips opening to the warmth of the sun,
bordering green lily pads and quiet pond.
