Fanno Creek Reflections and Heart


I walked along the banks of Fanno Creek, searching for signs of spring ... I found a creek which carries the scars from the ravages of wintertime floods ...


Debris caught in trees and shrubs give mute testimony to the fact that this is an urban park, smack in the middle of a fairly large city ...


A splash of white caught my eye ...


An egret!


Then I saw ... a broken heart.

Even though winter has not loosened it's grip ... there is still beauty to be found here.

How observant you are to have discovered and captured that broken heart. I have a heart-shaped rock, a pebble actually, that my now grown daughter gave me when she was 3. Hearts are indeed special.

Love this post!
