As long as the puddle stay as such and doesn't become a raging torrent!
Love those boots!

What a beautiful photo! I love it. (:

texwisgirl said...

texwisgirl said...

Leah J. Utas said...

Perfect spring photo.

Judy said...

Awesome shot!

Out on the prairie said...

A nice photo. I keep a pair of these in my van and another by my backdoor.

Farm Girl said...

That is a lot of water. But it is not snow right?

darlin said...

Holy smokes, the water is sure running at a rapid rate! What fun to feel the water running like that over your feet, I MISS THE COUNTRY ... as I stamp my feet and pound on my desk! lol Awesome shot Dawn!

Hilary said...

A beauty of an image.

The Wife of a Dairyman said...

What fun to go tromping through the streams in spring! I love how the water is moving.....great capture:)

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

I love this photo :) it is true about our paths

sage said...

Neat photo!

Clint said...

When the water is just a little warmer, do not miss the opportunity to lose the boots and splash in the water barefooted. That is liberating. Good photograph!

Allison said...

Ain't that just the truth. There's no two ways about it. Thank you for this.

Tracy said...

You can certainly say that again...we just seem so startled when we step in it!

Tammy said...

A very cool shot...and a familiar site.

Canyon Girl said...

Do puddles mean spring is finally on its way? Oh, I remember them from Sweden in spring, walking home from school, splashing all the way when I was a little kid. Great photo.--Inger

Randy said...

I feel like that today. Everyone at work was the puddle and I stepped into it. Makes it hard to stay upbeat.

fourwilkies said...

Cool. I love rubber boots. The water looks cold though!

this free bird said...

You said it lady. And those boots line my parents' basement. Totally thinking of my dad now!

xo,

Buttons said...

As you know I am a puddle girl myself. Cool. B

Nancy said...

Even in the desert? Hee hee. Couldn't resist.

May your paths be puddle-less from now on! :)

Deb said...

let little britches splash in the puddles after the rain storm...he loved it...

Elizabeth Grimes said...

Really nice photo! And such simplicity resonates such truth! :)

Jack said...

Another good philosophical thought, well illustrated by those boots.

Farmchick said...

Ain't it the truth!

Bill S. said...

Some have too many puddles - until you find a log to put over them.

Leontien said...

Amen.... time for some puddles to dry out i would hope!

Thanks
Leontien

Regina said...

Wow excellent one!

Puddles can be fun! Just jump right in and splash your way through them. Whatever you do, don't try to creep round the edge:-)

Peter said...

I can jump puddles.

beth said...

you didn't get swept away did you :)

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

I must say that I do find your "optimistic" view of life invigorating...yet, I've often been stuck in a puddle along my path and it's been a bit messy getting out of it. Which is probably what most people experience. My old psych prof in grad school used to quote Carl Rogers who noted that what is most personal is often or usually most general.

Meanwhile I'll keep slogging along!

Alli said...

How very true. As long as the puddle isn't too deep. Sometimes it's even fun to get a little wet and muddy!

Love the photo with the water streaming behind the boots!

Trisha said...

I try to jump them! :)

bon bon said...

yippee!! things are thawing out!

B.o.B. said...

ain't that the truth!

Val said...

So true, I'm about knee high right now.

John McElveen said...

I can feel the pull of the current!

Great shot!!!

John

Paul C said...

Puddles are much easier to handle.

Life 101 said...

Ain't that the way life goes. And to me, that's not necessarily a bad thang.

Rick said...

Ah, but in the right frame of mind, puddles are SO much fun. Just ask any 5-year old !!

heather yalin said...

aww, it's so simple! i love it!

Alisa said...

True... and they can be great fun at times to splash in. :)
Have a great weekend!

Bela said...

Dear Dawn, I wish you all the best Easter time ever!!! MUch fun, love and chocolate to you, sweet lady!!
Love, Bela

mountain mama said...

i love this. i may add a puddle or a pile of poop but i wouldn't want poop framed on my wall.

great shot :)

Daniel said...

Great capture, Dawn! Reminds me of a time in my childhood where I often played in the water.

Lady Fi said...

A perfect spring photo!

Cricket said...

My boys love to put on their similar rubber boots and go play in the rain and puddles. Why not? It would break their hearts if I ever said no.

Congratulations on your potw.
