Ducks & Old Man Sunshine



Hi everyone!  The video I have chosen for this post is "Old Man Sunshine" (Leo Reisman Orchestra, 1928).  Hope you all enjoy it!  Those of you who regular visitors to my blog know how much I love music from the early 1900's to 1940's, especially, even though I was born in 1956.  Not only do I love the music in the video, but the images, art and photos are lovely...a nice journey back in time for me, which I hope will be for you all as well!

The photo I am sharing is another one I took from my walk yesterday.  You just need to click on the photo to see a larger view.

Although I love the winter, I also love Spring, and am looking forward to taking many walks and photos.  I find that Spring is a time for energy and renewal.  It is such a joy to smell the fresh, clean air, hear the birds chirping, seeing the trees and flowers beginning to bloom.

Thank you all so much for visiting me here.  I really very much appreciate and enjoy reading your thoughts, which you are always welcome to share by clicking on the 'comments' link at the end of my post.

  1. Lovely photo! I usually love winter, but we have gotten very little snow, and I find that I'm growing a bit tired of the gray and brown. So I'm kind of looking forward to spring, too.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a kind comment. I like your blog and am your newest follower!

  4. Hi Linda, I love all of the old songs also. I was born in 1942 --and was in a very musical family. SO--music has been my life.

    Great picture. I am one who loves winter --although we haven't had too much winter this year. It was cold today--but no snow around...

    We've been in Arkansas this week enjoying some time at gorgeous Mt. Nebo. Hope you had a good week.

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  5. I love a good blizzard and even the clean up. Not so fond of many weeks of sub-zero temps though (I lived through 15 years of those in Calgary, although chinooks were very welcome). Glad we can now enjoy the (relative) warmth of Florida these days (although only 12C right now, but going up to 30C later in the week). Enjoyed your winter photos.

    Hope it's full-blown spring when we get back in late April !

    Have a great week, Linda.

    1. I would think it should be full blown Spring by late April, Rick...but Canada sometimes throws in a few surprises. Enjoy your week, and thanks for your comment.

  12. The yard was full of robins today! Everywhere my eyes would focus there was another, & another. I love the rebirth & excitement spring brings...especially the beautiful colors to chase away the drab winter!
    Much love,

  13. Greetings, Linda! This is a song I do not remember! It was a few years before I came along but somehow I must have missed it. Love your duck shots and will look forward to your spring photos in the weeks ahead!
