Such Dreary Days

After several days of very dreary, sometimes rainy, weather, the weatherman announced yesterday, at noon report, that the sun would make an appearance just before sunset.  I thought, “Yeah, right, I’ll believe it when I see it.”

I believe!

And then, it was sunset, dark!

Spring Haiku

Late Spring Snow

Snow, Late Spring

Snow, Late Spring

In  mid-April, we had one last (I hope) snowfall.  I was so tired of snow that I almost did not take any photos.  When I did, it was just a couple quick shots with my cell phone!  These photos and then a few nights later, windows open and hearing night time sounds, brought about this haiku.
