It's no secret that Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe were floating through my mind as I took these photos. Washington's incessant rain flooded many of my neighbor's yards, making little ponds. One in particular reminded me of a specific story in Anne of Green Gables. One in which a fair maiden in her dory sink and a coy gentleman comes to the rescue. I snuck into my neighbor's yard and took the pictures, though in my story, the boat doesn't sink. But I still find the photos to be reminiscent of Anne and Gil.
I only wish I were out in a boat on a sunny afternoon. What has your spring been like thus far?
