May Snow and Blossoms Guest Blog

May Blossoms and Snow video captured in Ohio by Terry Sherry. She texted this afternoon and I asked if I could post her capture of the snow falling.

It’s quick but she documented the unexpected May weather. Thanks Terry. I heard it snowed in places in Pittsburgh too but I didn’t see it. She told me there was a duck in the pond but we can’t see him. Brrrrrrrrrrrr.

Not Spring Yet

Yesterday I was remarking how I’d heard birds and there was sunlight on my living room floor  and it was staying light so much longer.

There’s a muddy feel in the air, impending Spring. A scent. A feel. Signs of the changing season – oops. The supposed rain shower today wasn’t rain at all but blustery icy sleety snow, blowing around wildly and the thermometer said NO WAY but yes, it was wintry white and howling and my optimism the winter coming to a close, vanished. Just like that!

Spring’s coming though   It always does. I know it. You wish it would hurry.

Cloudy cold with blowing sleety snow.

Michael Caught a Rainbow at the Dam

Sunday afternoon, some of the family went to the Alum Creek Dam to take the Airedales for a walk.

My grandson Michael took this photo of the rainbow he saw. I asked him to text it to me for the blog.

My last night in Ohio.

Another Color Photo Appears Black and White

When the outdoor world seems black and white and gray but your photograph is in color. Everyone has had enough of the cold, snow, ice and dark. They’re ready for crocuses and daffodils bursting through the earth, looking for light.

I’ve photographed this tree before. I always like how the snow defines the branches.
