Spring Equinox


Tis a time of celebration
welcoming of a new season
today clouds threaten to take over
yet the sun comes out to play from time to time
showing a grand blue sky!
These pictures were taken one after the other
you can see
we have a moody day!


Yes I had to wear my winter boots to get to the pond
sinking a foot and more in the soft melting snow.
Still the bridge where I ate my lunch was dry,
the day warm enough to be barefoot as I
enjoyed my salad with salmon.
Today is the first day I sat outside eating lunch,
perfect on Spring's Equinox!

  2. What a blue sky when it is blue. It is hard to imagine when seeing it that the other scene is the same day.

  20. Like a salmon, exploring the depths and currents of the ocean, and bringing back to land the essence of what it learned and retrieved, gifting a new generation the knowledge that it gleaned. We are all just symbols and monuments of feelings forgotten or celebrated along our way.

  28. Tammie Lee: My, your area doesn't look anything like Spring. At least you are starting to melt your way out. Neat sky photo on your trip outdoors.

    It is lovely, healing somehow.

    Thank you for sharing!

  32. Your pictures are lovely. If you look in the foreground of the last one it looks like ice ferns growing.

  36. Only a few patches of snow left on the earth here ... a wind whipped up this afternoon and it brought a chill with it ... there were snow flurries here about 5-minutes ago ... now the sun is shining!

    Spring = fickle!

    :)

  37. Yea, it is finally Spring! I like how the reflection is on the ice of the sky and trees. You have a photographer's eye.
