    • PS: thanks for visiting my “peaceful” post this morning. If it is any consolation, I woke up to about 3 cm (more than an inch) of snow as well. Your pic looks like a much warmer place to be than in my back yard, and although I have no plans to visit the bench of my photo, I suspect it is rather wintery there as well :)
      How nice that we can remind ourselves of sunny days coming by looking at photos of summertimes past. Stay warm!

      • I am wearing a knitted hat and scarf INSIDE my house. This is the first real cold of the year and it will take some getting used to. We have had SPring like temps. Not to bore you with my weather report. Thanks for your comment on my blog as well.
        And yes, I am looking forward to sitting outside in the sunshine before too long. I liked the peaceful theme today.

    Great shot! Looks like a lion keeping watch over the land.

    • Your likening to a lion keeping watch over the land is a good one. Thanks Kristin. His family liked seeing him on the blog today and didn’t remember the photo so that was fun.

    January 14, 2012 at 5:55 am

    • Yes, you are right, John. And really it has been quite mild up until now. This weather motivates me to make soup.
