And now that I've shown you Spring, this is just for Laura, of
Somewhere in NJ. Have to show her that she is not alone in her
childish exhuberance - or whatever it is that makes us return to
the wonderful fun of acting like a kid, no matter how old we are.

I thought I'd built this snowman a year or two ago. I guess I'm really
in my second childhood. It was back in 2002. That's OK. I was all of
70 years old then anyway. And there I was, all by myself, out on the
back deck, building my snowman. I made him look into the back door so I could look out an enjoy him more.

Laura built a wonderful snowman this year.
Go for it, Laura, any time you feel like it!

Bobbie - What a rotund little fellow! You make me wish I had made one, but that last snow was too light.

Thanks for your visits and kind words about the poetry and bougainvillea...

That's quite a snowman. Nice and round. Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

Nice to meet you!

That's the best snowman I've seen in years! I like his round belly!

I like that he was built to look in and smile at you.

I tried building one this past snow but the snow was heavy and wet so he was just a drag ;)

He's a great looking snowman!

Very, very cute! I think perhaps I've been either re-living my childhood, or I may be wishing there were still some children in this house! ;-) I've made a couple of snowmen lately, too. They're quickly disappearing, though. We've had a lot of rain, lately. And today's afternoon temperature was pretty "balmy!" ha.

It is important that we play at any age!
No apologies ever needed for acting as a child--they know many things we have forgotten.
