The most exciting things blooming this week have been overhead, here pink buds and flowers, white flowers and clouds in a blue sky.

Hanging down by the pond. Can you see the intricate spider’s web?

Super-Tower Lynn Wiles 2013
A stand alone tower, a plane, and a seagull that you can’t really see at this size. Before going out to shovel more heavy wet snow, I thought I’d post some blue skies from the weekend. Why is today not a snow day? When will spring really come? I heard a new phrase ‘snow fatigue’. I’ve got it.

Afternoon Sea © Lynn Wiles 2013
To celebrate Daylight Savings Time, we made plans to go to the sea. Since this happened two days after the most recent big storm, I wasn’t sure what we would find. The waves were bigger at this usually calm beach.

I have never seen quite so many sea creatures washed up. The seagulls couldn’t even eat them all. Photos of what we found will be coming up in the next few days.
It was nice having the sun set an hour later, but not nice waking up one hour earlier and yes, I’ve had a lot of tea.

Afternoon Tree © Lynn Wiles 2013
On the theme of afternoon trees, yesterday was a beautiful day with blue skies and a lot of snow melting. The shadows, bark, and bare spots on this tree were interesting to me.

Big houses on the lake, looking tiny compared to the sky reflecting on the now ice free lake, as we prepare for our next big winter storm. Click on image for a larger view.

Contrasts in Blue I © Lynn Wiles 2013
The paths were clear, the temperature pleasant, there were buds visible on some trees, the skies were gray, but I made them blue. Not far away the snow and ice remained. I saw a goofy face on top and a tongue sticking out in the center, so I made them blue too.

Yesterday was an almost warm, gray, foggy day. Here are some geese flying north.
Ugly Duckling? © Lynn Wiles 2013
I’m not sure what this is. Is it a young swan or something else? The English Professor identified this bird as a red-breasted merganser.

Even the ice on the river revealed a bird shape.

Even though they are supposedly common, I rarely see the Hooded Merganser.

The last and brightest duck of the day.
