Dear Friends, with my feet up and sitting in my lawn chair, watching the sunset and the cranes come into the roost sight, does life get better than this??  In the fall watching the cranes is my idea of perfect, however, it could be a little warmer.  Tomorrow a big snow storm, so enjoy the heat while you can, til Tomorrow MJ

Color Pink

cyclmen1Friends, this is not outside, but in the indoors at Como Park in St Paul, every spring (or late winter) my color meter gets empty and i need to get it filled.  The Conservatory at Como is a delightful place year round, flowers blooming in great profusion.  This cyclamen still had the morning watering clinging to it, so i got in close to do a macro.  hope you like it til Tomorrow MJ

 

Balancing

blue balance3Friends, having a meltdown as our snow was starting to recede, but this morning we had 8 inches of fresh snow.  Between snow, cold and a non-functioning vehicle, i am very tired of this winter and anxious for it to be over.  On a recent trip to Lake Superior shores, ii found this ice chunk speaking of balance.  Balancing emotions like this ice chunk resting on a bigger ice chunk reminds me to trust in something bigger than myself, so today i am again back to the blogging.  til Tomorrow MJ

 

Waiting for Spring

snow house kestrelFriends, this image says winter and waiting for it to be over, the return of the bird to its house would definitely say spring, but first we have to melt these gigantic drifts.  This was found in the Namekagon Barrens Wildlife Area, a vast wilderness that only contains snowmobilers and rugged photographers in the winter.  Good thing we have four=wheel drive on the pickup, almost got stuck on a trail that had not been plowed very well, so if you go, watch the width of the road, if it narrows too much it has probably turned into a trail, not a road.  til Tomorrow MJ

 

A Hole in the Clouds

hole in the cloudFriends, on a recent cloudy day i ventured to enter Crex Meadows, no light but when i reached this point, suddenly the sky opened to reveal this lonely oak tree, so I took out the camera and took his picture, he said thank you and i was on my way, too much snow is making me talk to inanimate objects, but thank you lonely oak, til Tomorrow MJ

More ICE (sigh)

icecilesFriends, I think that more ice is rather depressing, but that is what is out there at this season, I have been hunting the Snowy Owl that has been hanging out in Crex, but with no success.  I am bummed. til Tomorrow MJ
