its a surprise, no peeking!

Lots 'o' sun for Minnesota this week and at this posting, most trees have leafed out. Its been a week full of blue skies and puffy clouds. Above is my favorite tree in the area where I walk--not yet dressed for summer it seems. Below is another part of my walk where I usually see wood ducks and turtles and hear golfers. Peaceful and busy, full of life.
See more idyllic skies from all over our lovely here.

Poor, dear, silly Spring, preparing her annual surprise!

I'm liking your second image here, the sky is good but then the reflection makes it twice the picture!... thanks for sharing your views!....:)

What is it with Zamboni?..... We brits obviously aren't in the same league in Ice Hockey but Zamboni is like a religion?......

Splendid views, Noni. The impressing tree in the first image is fabulous!

You must be longing for green leaves by this time. Hope the temperature continues to rise.
