Pool Time

"When I was forty-five I lay for hours
beside a pool, the green hazy
springtime water, and watched
the salamanders coupling, how they drifted lazily,
their little hands floating before them,
aimlessly in and out of the shadows, fifteen
or twenty of them, and suddenly two
would dart together and clasp
one another belly to belly
the way we do, tender and vigorous, and then
would let go and drift away
at peace, lazily,
in the green pool that was their world
and for a while was mine."   Hayden Carruth

Linking up to Texture Tuesday..I used Kim Klassens 2110 texture at Multiply 25 percent.

What a gorgeous pool and house!! It reminds me of a Bed & Breakfast we stayed in Kentucky a few years ago. Quite restful..basking in the warm sunshine - you'll be refreshed I'm sure when you return home! You must promise me Cheryl, that you'll bring the sun and warm weather with you and spread it all over the US!! Promise?!! :-) Hugs!! xo

I wish I could Beverly and i'm going to try...this has been blissful and the cold weather will be a shock...but there is nothing like Home Sweet Home.

This looks lovely. I am scanning the internet now for a warm get-away!

This looks so charming and appealing. I guess we are both lucky to have avoided some of the worst of the cold weather this year. Do you generally go south every year? And is Saint Maarten a favorite of yours? Hope the weather starts to warm up when you get back!

Beautiful! More so because of the seasonal contrast.

So lovely, Cheryl!
Must have been hard to leave this behind.
Glad you were able to get away for some R&R . . .
