A Walk Around The Block



If the daffodils are blooming then we know for sure that spring is here!

This guy was either posing for the camera or else he was ready to take me on. I thought it was so funny the way it stood up , and looked at me.

I couldn’t resist this pretty face.  Pansy’s are one of my favorite flowers.




These are a few of the things that captured my attention on my walk around the block of my city street, near my home. It is so nice to be able to finally see signs of Spring. I took these pictures last Sunday after noon. It was one of a few days where the temperature reached the mid 60’s, and it felt wonderful. It was a bright sunny Spring day.


Take care, and God be with you all, and keep you safe, and sound. I wish you all many sunny, and happy days ahead.

Love and Care

Dianne :)



  1. I've seen some Daffodils too! It's great to see that...spring has been slow to wake here...but seeing the tornadoes to the east I guess maybe I should count my blessings. I absolutely love the pictures Dianne! I will be off the grid in a few weeks while in internet at the cottage we'll be staying in. God's blessings to you my friend.

  2. Indeed a wonderful walk, it looks like it was rewarding with all the beautiful flowers & little critters about! Here on the west side the snow is relentless but warm enough that it is not sticking!
    Great pictures Dianne!

  3. I just love that Squirrel and the flowers are so beautiful Dianne. You had a peaceful walk. May you have many many more.
    Peace , Grace and many Blessings.

  4. Such beautiful photos. The pansy is my favorite flower.

  5. Wonderful photos, Dianne. I do love the photos of the squirrels, they are so cute. The Pansey is also one of my favorite flowers.

  6. Beautiful. That squirrel cracks me up. It does look like he might have wanted to "take you on!" ;o)

  7. Wow! Your pictures get more and more beautiful! Thanks, Dianne. Praying all is going well with you and that your mom is doing well. hugs, g

  8. I'm loving it, Dianne, especially that squirrel! Spring is here in all it's glory. Now if I can just get outside with the camera more and the power tools less. I hope to be returning to the work force soon, albeit part-time and work from home, and one of the first things that crossed my mind when I enrolled in this program was how I would squeeze a job in around my shooting expeditions with Buddy. The next thought was that I'd have to work on my wish lists on the photo supply sites because I'll have a little extra money for a change.... :-)

  9. Thank you all so very much for coming by to visit me, and my blog. You are all so kind, and just down right wonderful people to know as friends.
    Have a wonderful weekend.
    xx's Dianne :)

  10. Oh it's so good to see you finally catching up Dianne , our Daffodils are now finished over here, sad to say I just love the colours and seeing them sway in the breeze. I noticed a few blue bells coming up by the smaller pond here in my garden. Lovely photo's thank you and I hope you have a lovely weekend. Hugs Sheila xx

  11. Sehr schöne Bilder von den Blüten im Frühling und den Tieren.


  12. I too love ALL of God's wonderful creations....I seem to not get enough photo's of it.

    We have been in Spring now for several weeks here in West TN....just don't like all of the storms we have been having. Loving all of the beautiful flowers.

  13. Looks like a lovely spring walk. The squirrel is funny.

  14. I love your photos and their chronicling the advent of Spring and new hope. If you are attuned to can symbolize new hope in the Lord as well.
