Stopping by the park on a sunny day

The park sits in a quiet residential area where there aren’t many young children any more. It has huge maple trees which keep the park cool on a hot summer day. Squirrels and birds reside there.  





This time of year, sunbeams shine through the trees to the park floor for a few hours every day. Snow has already begun to accumulate as the shadows stretch during the diminishing hours of daylight.





We take our grandchildren there on occasion and the girls love the playground equipment, especially the seesaw. My husband introduced our youngest grandchild to the park recently. Our grandson and his oldest sister, visited the park with Poppy one day just before the snow arrived. The toddler enjoyed the seesaw as much as his sisters do. He giggled as his sister lifted him skyward and eased him down again.




On this particular day, with the snow still clinging to the trunks of the trees, you can almost hear the echos of children’s laughter hanging in the cold air. It will be some time before before the kids are back again to add to the collective joy of this small park. Winter has arrived.

Gotta love it when the snow clings to the trees like that.

Your pictures evoke the past days of the playground, and give me a sense of peacefulness. Lovely, Marie! :-)

It looks very pretty and peaceful, though I'd like it better full of happy children.

Elegant and lovely.
And, I suspect, much quieter than it is at warmer times of the year.

I see what you did with your title there! lol Wonderful pictures; you have captured the "blue snow" effect of sunny winter afternoons so well.

So good to hear children's merry voice in the snow, the light falling on the snow.

Happy weekend to you and your grandchildren!
