The Week In Seven Photos

An umbrella was necessary.

Puddles and missing football were an everyday occurrence.

First sign of water along the shore.

The days of missing capturing reflections in the water were over.

Chasing hawks through snow covered fields prior to the big melt and rainstorms.

Desperate for any sign of color. Β Golf anyone?

Singin’, standing, splashing, driving and walking in the rain.

    1. Thank you!πŸ™‚ She has an attitude against umbrellas like me. She refuses to walk with the umbrella hanging over her head, so other than the rare photo, we can always be found getting soaked in the rain.πŸ™‚

    1. Gabby was a bright spot to the week, along with the return of some of the geese and swans to the area. Although, I think they were disappointed that they did not have a little bit more open water.πŸ™‚

        Swans!!! How I envy you. As far as I know, we don’t have swans in Maine. At least not in central Maine. Too cold for them, I suppose.

      2. So far I have seen more standing on the ice than in the lake, but we have more warm weather on the way and they should be able to enjoy the lake next week.πŸ™‚

    You’ve really captured the wet transition and hope for more spring-like days. That won’t be happening for weeks up here, but once the real thaw begins, please let it be quick – mud season, yuck.
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Definitely ready for spring now!πŸ™‚ The snow is gone, spring training baseball games are on tv and there’s almost enough open water to at least put the kayak in the lake (just no room to paddle).😁 Enjoy your weekend!πŸ™‚

    How adorable Gabby is! Nice series that illustrates our past week. No doubt that that hawk is a red-tail! πŸ™‚

    What an expressive way of sharing your week with us, ACI. I am so reminded of my younger days in the Midwest and the ending of winter, in this post. The football and the golf ball, so much water everywhere, gray skies, bits of ice, folded leaf. Your words were equally as poignant as your photos. I hope some sunshine comes your way in the new week, if not, I know it is just around the corner. Stay warm and dry, my friend — I know Gabby has figured this out. πŸ˜‰

    1. I was watching some of the spring training baseball games on tv and the Pebble Beach golf tournament the other week and I was amazed at the beautiful blue skies after our Midwest gray.πŸ™‚ We have Midwest blue skies and warmer temperatures on the way next week and there have been some early arrivals to the area. I hear geese arriving daily, the swans are making an appearance and our chipmunks have emerged and are enjoying the deck. I’m glad I could share a Midwest winter reminder.😁
