A Little Outdoor Lagniappe for "Outdoor Wednesday "

Welcome to Outdoor Wednesday ...


I'd like to thank our gracious hostess Susan at A Southern Daydreamer, for taking the time to host our "Outdoor Wednesdays." I hope you will visit Susan to see her beautiful outdoors in Georgia, as well as everyone else's contributions.

March "roared into Vicksburg like a lion" ... bringing us several cool and windy days.

I haven't ventured out with my camera much, so today I'd like to share a collection of random photos I took recently when we were blessed with a few spring-like days.

For brevity's sake, I'm going to let the photos speak for themselves (you can click on the photos to enlarge them, if you'd like) ...

[I have more photos posted at the bottom of my blog, if you'd like to scroll down to see them.]

We have warmer days forecast for the end of the week and the weekend, so I hope to have some new photos to share with you for our next "Outdoor Wednesday." Until then, I hope your outdoors are filled with sunshine and signs of Spring.

Sincerely,

Janie, have I told you today how much I love your photographs? Well, if I haven't, I do! And that lion... oh, he's a real cutie, and the soldier in the Park in Vicksburg is magnifient against that sky! All of them are wonderful, and they are a nice way to start my day that will be ending late! :-)

XO,

Sheila

Oh my goodness the shot of the elephant was wonderful! Then a scroll or two down were cypress trees in water. Elephants and cypress trees they look similar. Quess I haven't noticed that before. I roared when I saw the lion roar. How cute...but will someday eat us for desert. Happy Outdoor Wednesday!
