Spring Hasn’t Sprung

Most years (with last year being a notable exception) springtime here in Maine does not mean the same thing as it does to much of the rest of the country. In early April, lakes are usually still partially frozen and typically there is some snow on the ground, if not an all out snowstorm at some point. By the end of the month, crocuses, tulips, daffodils and hyacinths are making a timid start. Lawns start to resume having a bit of green here and there, and trees are beginning to bud. As eager as we are to go outdoors in a single layer instead of six and slather on sunscreen, I still manage to find beauty in this season of damp days and moody skies. For the record, though, I would welcome a bit more brightness in May! Here are a few shots of the Maine landscape from the month of April.

    That’s it, I’m going to start a band just so we can use the bird shot on the cover of our first album.

    Thanks! I’m so glad. (What does a heart singing sound like I wonder?) It’s funny I’ve seen similar bird in the sky shots before and always wondered how people managed to take them, but now I have my very own. I just happened to see them coming and my camera just happened to be at an appropriate setting so I pointed up and snapped and voila!
