Aww… the grass was just beginning to rise…

The skies were mostly blue Monday.  Tuesdays, temperatures dipped low enough that the in-coming precipitation turned into a blend of rain and snow.  The gutters were still dripping (water) during my walk.  I got snow on the sides of my hair despite wearing a cap.

The weather’s returned to spring today. Three sunny days in a row, according to the Accuweather forecast. …But there is still snow on the ground around the house… So… how about some new photos to remind us of what spring is supposed to look like, alright? All right.

The birds were out…

walking under a hot sun, sweating.
Be sure to thank the birds
…’cause they eat the danged insects.

Well, it’s the end of the season.  The calendar puts the autumnal equinox at 4:21 a.m., so I’m literally kind of doing this at the last minute… I’d considered doing something “The Last Leg of Summer” weeks ago, but didn’t have it in me, or enough photos.

It was a mild Summer, here in Maine. Continue reading O Summer, I barely knew thee
