how enticing

Carpe Diem #731 - "How enticing"

Spring and fall have proven to be a favorite time for vacations.  The cooler weather fits Mr. Heater in a body's needs, especially if tent camping.  To see the flush of spring flowers sometimes amid snowfall is an enthralling sight.  Well worth the challenges of the occasionally rain soaked tent.
