The Roving Gypsy

A  L  O  H  A !
 "If I had my life to live over, 
I would start barefoot 
earlier in the spring and 
stay that way 
later in the fall."
          Nadine Stair

 "First a howling blizzard woke us,
Then the rain came down to soak us,
And now before the eye can focus —
                Lilja Rogers

"Hope is a roving gypsy
With laughter on her tongue,
And the blue sky and sunshine
Alone, can keep her young;
And year by year she lingers
Under a budding tree..."
      Dora Read Goodale,
 April 1902

Hello, wonderful variety of photos. I love the lizard. The cow is a cutie too. Pretty shot of the Mocker with the blooms. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Thanks for the comment too. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend.

Love the way you paired the quote about the roving gypsy with the cow looking wistfully out of the pasture. It needs wire cutters...

Cloudia said...

You each bring wonderful thoughts here that I so enjoy reading. THANKS!

The cow looks quite stoic.

Hi dear! The El Mocambo is/was on Spadina south of College near U of T. It has been closed for a while undergoing renovations with a new owner. The old sign has been brought inside and an exact replica is being mad for outside with new electronics. I spent many an evening there in the day!

Great shots! I love the crocus poem.

Angie said...

The praying mantis is my favorite ... one of my sisters would like your quote about being barefoot - she has always hated wearing shoes!

Thanks each of you! Thanks Pat for the construction update!
