I’d love to share a photo of me and my husband retired and traveling the world, but it’s a difficult shot, even with my Nikon, as it hasn’t yet happened. Instead, I’ll share this bit of future waiting to happen, while outside the rain-snow mix and wind continue, a spring day in NE Illinois.  🙂

    🙂 Can you imagine how pretty it is when the bloom has opened and the sun is out?
    Greeting from rainy, cold Vienna and have a very HAPPY weekend! 🙂

    • It will be gorgeous. Right now we’re having rain/snow/wind/cold and now, some sunshine. The battle for spring continues. 🙂

      Have a wonderful weekend yourself!

    A bud is the second best 😉

    Beautiful flower ready for the future, the near future!

    • Yes, the near future, although to look outside right now is to wonder how near. 🙂 Anticipation makes the arrival all the sweeter. Thanks for stopping by, Elizabeth, and for the follow. I look forward to seeing you again soon and have a great weekend.
