EASTER SQUALL

Sunday was quiet–delightfully so. New York Times plus Sunday morning news shows plus a fireplace and unlimited coffee. Who could ask for finer?

I took a walk late in the afternoon and while it was gray and crispy outside, there was nothing out of the ordinary in the air.

 I must have missed something.  Forty minutes after I got home, the last “snowstorm” of the season hit, creating a near-whiteout for a brief time. 

I’d already vowed that I’d taken all the snow shots I could tolerate for the year, but this was too good to let pass. These were all taken in the field behind my house.

    Looks like winter milkweed. Lovely.

  2. Oh, what a lovely connection. Thanks, Karen.

    That isn’t snow, those are fairies. Oh I just read Karen’s comment, that would have been a great title.

  4. Look forward to more of what’s behind your house. This particular glimpse, especially as seen from my distant viewpoint, grabs at my imagination. Beautiful may be too lazy of a description, but it applies nevertheless. Also: evocative; cozy, if adequately sheltered; good material for a coffee ad, eye candy for urban dwellers, etc..

    • Ah…thank you. It’s always nice to see your own world through someone else’s eyes. In the winter, the animals (like deer) create an elaborate and well-trod road system back there. Now, you’ve posted pictures of your own “backyard” in the past–that looks truly exotic to me!
