From Winter To Spring In 30 Hours

Here are a few photos I took today while visiting a local park.

It's suddenly hard to remember that snow covered the ground as recently as yesterday morning....

No signs of life (other than the botanical kind) at the frog pond yet. It was good to see that recent rains and snow melt have raised the water up to a respectable level.

Despite a decade of trying I still haven't figured out if the goldfish somehow manage to survive in the depths all winter long or if the pond gets restocked with them every year when I'm not looking. No sign of them today.

I *did* catch a cloud making faces in the water, however.

Silly cloud. I bet it laughs every time the wind blows some poor woman's skirt up, too.


  1. Wow. It'll be about two months before I have daffodils in my yard.

  2. Absolutely LOVELY! So artistic how the flowers poke their pretty heads out from beneath the brown leaves... I recognize the snowdrops, although I've never actually seen them in person. That last picture is a real beauty! I like how the crooked reeds stick out like bent antennae from the reflecting cloud. :-)

  3. Yay spring! It's about time.
