I haven't been out this week so I pulled this from my archives. It is a swollen stream from last May. It's hard to believe that in just two short months everything will again be this green and lush!

Beautiful shot of the stream, thanks for sharing.

Cheers!

Yes, it is very green, Carletta. And a nice reminder for sure!

Kathy said...

I like it. Its one of the prettiest shots of a river I have seen in a while. The green foliange is beautiful.

ROSIDAH said...

A river and the forest. What a great combination! I would love to stroll around and take a deep breath here. Best wishes :)

VALKYRIEN said...

Looks like a great place to go for a walk after a hard day at work! Lovely!

We have had problems with flooding with all the rain. But the green that comes with May will be very welcome...

beautiful said...

Looks like a flowing creek right after a rain. Is it? I bet it's nice to lay down in a boat and flow along.

Oh, I also have a photo of a river, almost the same color as this. So lush indeed.

Tricia said...

Looks like a nice river stream even if it's out of its banks. I love all that green!

That was May? You're right -- it's really green. Must make you feel really hopeful: spring is almost here.

This is a great "teaser" shot for what we have to look forward to in a few months! It's amazing how quickly everything starts growing once it warms up.

Beautiful!

Connie said...

This is pretty. I miss the green leaves. It is going to be here soon though.

ilanadavita said...

Nice shot of this swollen river.

Kamera Kitty said...

Beautiful! So natural and lush! I just love nature!

Raven said...

Lovely shot. We are having flood threats here. I really should check with my friends and make sure everything is ok with them. My friend Sue (didn't know her then) was flooded out in the big floods we had here three years ago. They panic whenever the river rises now.

Denise said...

Hi Carletta, great shot. The foliage on each side of the river makes a wonderful photo. Looking forward to everywhere turning green myself.

Jew Wishes said...

How beautiful, Carletta. Nature at its loveliness. I like the tones and texture blends.

Denise said...

Meant to say how much I am enjoying your new blog, you have some incredible photos on here, very enjoyable.

kden said...

You do have good shots, all the way around. Great river one too.

Jane said...

Some beautiful shots you have here, thanks for posting them.

Tess said...

Hi Carletta, I like your Watery Wednesday, I like the photo this large. I hope that you have a wonderful day today and hope to see some photos again.

Jenn Jilks said...

We are definitely hoping for warm, swollen rivers around here!
Thanks for visiting my blog, too!

fishing guy said...

Carletta: We have the same here, we have had 2" or more of rain so everything is flowing.

Mojo said...

Swollen is right! Is that even below flood stage? Looks like it could be pretty close.

Our snow is gone now. Been gone for days. That shot was taken in the mountains several years ago. The same day as my That's My World post from this week actually. Same day as the second shot from my TMW post I mean.

Janice Thomson said...

Beautiful photo indeed!
Can't wait for the rains to green everything up :)

Babooshka said...

I know all about these. Always a worry.

Paz said...

Very nice shot.

ALF said...

In the Kublakan
Zanzibar did decree
that ALF the sacred flows through caverns unknown to man.
Where do all the sacred rivers flow?
If not to eturnity around the bend
There it is in a glance, swollen,
and filled with se(d)(nt)iment
a path on which to float on too
round the earth
it is the water that unites,
not fear,
as does the air of Heirs,
and spirit which is seen
on cool foggy breath of a night
but as for the light,
you put it there,
an inspiration for us all
and to folks like me
to folks of the north
you've shown us all
that 'spring is near.'
I'll break out the canoe today
and go out and play
braving the river, to know
there is Spring on the way.

A poem to say
Thank you
