Look who popped-up?

One of our garden figures is finally emerging from under the snow... good to see him!

Thistle

I was thinking about St. Patrick's Day but I now see that thistle is really a symbol of Scotland. The intricate spikiness of the flower is a curious design, even when the plant has dried and gone to seed.

Picnic anyone?

It's amazing what shows up as the snow melts. I guess the snowplow was a bit too aggressive here.

Snow on the bay

A warming trend this week will hopefully mean a bit of the long awaited winter thaw. According to the calendar Spring will be here soon, but that does not mean winter is done with us just yet.

Joy (See you in May)

Let's hope the snow is gone by then.

I couldn't look away

I complain about snow but it is hard to deny that it can be quite beautiful. The shapes and contours can be rather seductive.
