away for the weekend: misty mountain morning

Saturday, April 26, 2014

misty mountain morning

It was a busy winter -
skiing, snowshoeing, enjoying a warm fire with a good book
(and maybe a glass of wine - or two...)

Then - it seemed that everyone was talking about Spring -
and I thought - Wait, what? Is it really time for Spring?
(which is probably a good thing - considering Spring is a late arrival here...)


But then - a couple of weeks ago, I woke up to the most beautiful misty morning.
I grabbed my camera, hoping to catch the light -
and stepped out on our deck to a balmy 40 degrees 
- yeah, I know - it's all relative.


But then I realized - hey, it is Spring.
Pouring myself a cup of coffee, I pulled up a chair and had a nice chat
 with my little feathered friend.
We both agree - it's definitely time to bid Old Man Winter a fond farewell.

  10. I love these photos----and yes, it is time for Spring! I think it's lurking just around the corner here too. Almost all the snow is gone and most of the ice has drifted from the bays, so there is hope-ha ha!
    I long for warmer mornings to be able to sit outside with a morning coffee.

  15. This is a very well written description of spring. You can close your eyes and see these things. Now the photos give you more to sense.
