Day 122 — May 1st. It hit a balmy 12 degrees today. Still, I’d rather that than what we had on Monday. I know that Spring is truly here now. I saw and heard a massive flock of cranes today. I was on a short walk in Morinville and suddenly I heard their beautiful, soft trilling overhead. I looked up. And nearly cried. They are so amazing to watch and listen to. Spring really is here now. It really is.
Day 64 — The drive to work this mornig was lovely. The hoar-frost on the trees and bushes made it such a beautiful scene. The mornings are getting lighter and lighter each day — I love seeing pink and magenta on the horizon when I step out the door.
The snow over our heads hasn’t fallen — yet. In fact, it has snowed more and the ‘sculptures’ at my front doorstep have continued to shift and change. Here’s there latest forms.
The following post was supposed to be published on Sunday night — apparently I saved it as a draft, instead. Never did that before, so don’t know if it was my fault or WordPress did a random on me again. Anyway, here it is a few days late. . .
I’m borrowing from Sting tonight — the sun was glorious as it was going down tonight. Of course, the colours are not exactly as I saw them — need to download Adobe again and learn how to correct the colours. But, I want to share these anyway. So, here you go — a beautiful prairie summer sky.
First off, apologies to Dan Juraks, whose blog I subscribe to, for not having the quality of photos he posts. I’m learning.
