Mellow Monday

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!  The video I have selected for this post is a soothing 3 minute clip with beautiful flute music accompanied by a waterfall and birds chirping.  Enjoy!

The photos I am sharing today are ones that I took in May 2013.  The water level reached high which is why you see a picnic table in the water!  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.

  4. I love them all. The goose in the foreground of the first one really makes that one special. The reflections in all of them are wonderful.

    Lovely photos, too! Photos like yours help us remember past seasons.

  6. That picnic table made me laugh...we had a picnic area on one of the islands at the house in France...but always had to remember to bring the furniture in before the winter floods...

  12. Bonjour,

    Je suis un peu en retard pour vous souhaiter un joyeux anniversaire, mais je le fais en vous faisant de gros bisous.

    Merci pour ces dernières photos. Elles sont impressionnantes... toute cette eau qui monte est toujours incroyable... et pas très rassurante.
    Gros bisous
