According to the calendar it is spring,but we all know that the weather need not agree with that.
The pictures I am sharing today were all taken two years ago in early spring.
The snow does begin to melt on warmer days.Here you can see the way the snow is melting,creating craters in the snow banks.Add to that an overnight dusting of snow and suddenly this turns into a creative design.
On the little puddles the ice is also beginning to melt,leaving interesting textures.
I was out one evening hoping for a beautiful sunset,and likely got that,but I also got a bonus.I noticed the water in the ditch beside the road and the lace like patterns that the remaining ice was creating.The setting sun added a nice soft color to this scene.
At the Pembina River the ice has obviously broken up,leaving behind chucks of ice that will soon melt and blend into the water.
Lake Minniwasta is ice free,but as you can see the trees are still waiting for their new green leafy garments.
I so enjoy the springtime,when there is the excitement of new growth and new birds arriving.
Teach me the art of responding to life,
not with my feelings but a clear mind and a clear resolve.
