Mandy,
What a mellow setting to sit and contemplate the poetry of spring. I've heard the muse and she is you.;-)

Such a peaceful scene. The mallard's "mumblings" can be quite soothing.

I would love to be sitting on that bench with a cup of coffee, just listening.

Wonderful mood captured by the photo and poem. I could sit there for hours, tea in hand.
