A Threesome at the Duck Pond

In my previous post, I shared my people watching at Gypsy Hill Park last weekend. Now comes even more fun: a duck threesome (another set of Threes) paddling in the water.

But not just drab old pond water. This water was dyed in reds and golds and blues! My color-starved eyes are feasting on the watery reflections (did they originate from a red car passing by? does it matter?): an abstract painting of serendipitous water art:

Playing around some more, nature’s art turns into a duck batik. Can’t you just see some pillows with this pattern on your patio furniture, a few months from now when spring has truly returned?!

Just two days of warm temperatures revived my winter-weary spirit – I can see and feel and smell Spring now…she’s just around the corner getting dressed, preparing her blossom garlands and re-filling her painter’s palette.

    I am not a visually oriented person. Definitely a head dweller, preferring words. Generally, I like photographs of landscapes that remind me of hiking/climbing trips. I have spent several minutes viewing these photographs. They are magical to me.

    Beautiful water reflections. I got water reflections in my most recent post too, but they look completely different from yours.
