Pic Today 3/15/11






JUST WHEN WE THOUGHT
WINTER HAD LEFT

It's been so warm lately,
signs of Spring everywhere.
Thoughts had already turned
to gardens and seeds,
green lawns and tulips.

We put away our warm winter clothes,
our hats, our gloves.
Ol' Man Winter had finished his show.

Then . . . POW!
That's when nature lets you know
who's in control.

A heavy winter snow.
It caught us all off guard
(especially the weather man!)

  4. Näin se menee ilmojen kanssa. Lunta ja loskaa...
    Onneksi - voi sanoa - kuvasi ovat hienoja ja ilmentävät tapahtumia oivallisesti.
    Meillä saattaa vielä kesäkuussa yllättää luminen sade...!

  12. Exact, cher Rick, nous sommes des mémoires amnésiques et voulons le monde tel qu'il doit nous servir.
    Mais le monde est une entité qu'il faudrait beaucoup mieux respecter pour comprendre que l'homme n'en n'est pas le Maître.
    Je crois que tu l'as parfaitement analysé. J'aime ce constat d'homme sage qui est le tiens et bien entendu ton travail de photographe que je respecte beaucoup.
    Belle journée à toi Rick. Le printemps reviendra. Il est déjà dans ton cœur, alors, nous allons vers les beaux jours.
    Amitiés.
