First Day of Spring, March 20, 2015.
Lovely shadows cast by the morning sun
The promise of a beautiful day
The latest pile of snow
Morning of the second day of Spring, March 21, 2015; Wally gets on Forget Me Not Cabin roof.
Dragging His Scoop Behind Him
Assessing the Situation
I catch Wally's eye
Tentative smile before the task ahead
The Mighty Scooper
Another Push Off
The cabin doesn't seem so high nor so large
with the snow swallowing it up
Man on a Roof
Preparing to Dismount
Arbeit Macht Der Lebn Zees
a saying my father used to say, and now we say it all the time:
"Work Makes Life Sweet"
The Cabin Roof shoveled
And for our friend, Jane, Wally makes a snowman after shoveling the garage roof.
That was yesterday.
This is today:
The little snowman buried
Our Third Day of Spring
I'm beginning to think this week has brought half our winter's snowfall
The Ash Tree to the right of the driveway,
up to her armpits in snow, the top of the hedge peeking below her
Five fingers of the Japanese Maple tepee poking out of the snow pile
The back hedge bowed once again under the weight of a wet snow
More like a Christmas card than a happy Springtime bouquet,
we're enjoying this beautiful gift.
(and it's still snowing)
I don't know who said,"Things you take for granted someone else is praying for,"
but I am feeling ever so grateful today.
