Santa Claus on April Fool’s Day

Taken at lunchtime on Friday April first.  You worry the homeowner might be ill or injured and can’t get out on the roof to take down Christmas.  A gray sky but a cheery Santa face. Reminds me of the Coca-Cola ads.    I’ve watched and wondered how long Santa will be up there.  I’ve had Christmas up a long time myself, inside the house.  But not into April. Ever. The front hallway always seems so bare when the garland comes down.  


Ersatz Icicle Dangles from Branch

I stared at this for a long time wondering how it could be

Spring is here.
Officially.
Unseasonably cold
and you can see why
I wondered how this sight
could possibly be real.
Not!
But it made me wonder.

Yesterday I took Murphy for  a walk after school.  And it was about 37 degrees.  Chilly but not freezing.  I got down the street and saw this hanging from a tree branch.
