not the slightest breeze riffling
the cottonwood leaves

  1. if there were a breeze, one would probably be covered with snowy seeds!

      Ah, yes, the bane of living near cottonwoods!

  2. No breezes here in Florida lately. (I guess that’s good since we are nearly in hurricane season.)

  3. The Animus looks high in its banks. We’ve mostly had clouds and winds this spring and lots of moisture.

  4. Everything has come early this year — more than I’ve seen in the 20 years I’ve lived here. Be interesting now to see what the summer brings!!!

  5. Love the way cottonwood trees leaves rustle in the breeze.

  6. lovely! at least it looks like it’s warming up there, it’s very nippy here in the mornings.

  7. lovely scene and like the word riffling … beautiful!

  8. The river is wonderfully framed.

  9. You have a way with words (love “riffling”)…and a camera 🙂
