What do we know about usual, it being our 3rd winter in Nova Scotia, but here we are anticipating yet another blizzard tomorrow after just getting through one on Sunday. The snow we lost during last week's thaw has been replaced.
A little late with my spring photos from last week where the birds were flying about in happy throngs. A few crows came to visit like this handsome fellow.

please excuse my poor exposures

"What's that you see, Babu?"

In light of that, I am continuing my purge. This week it's magazines and letters and cards from friends that are no longer in my life. It is a wistful time, best done in short bits before it gets to be too much. I like to watch minimalist videos to spur me on, like this one:
and this one:
I hope these might be as inspiring to you.
