Hard Evidence for Spring’s Glorious Arrival

After a long and dreary winter, spring has finally arrived. Being four weeks late here in the Arrow Lake region, nature is literally exploding into action. The photos below have all been shot on a single day last week: one at the Fauquier boat dock, two at home, and the other two at the Taite Creek Campsite 10 km south of our small community. Each photo is glorious testimony for the miracle of life through the re-awakening of nature after winter’s long resting period. Enjoy.

In Search for a Sign of Spring

Spring equinox has come and gone, and there is still snow on the ground. In my desperate search for a sign of the elusive Spring, I resorted to all kinds of tricks. Looking for animals, which read Nature’s sign posts much better than we humans can, I discovered the geese pair on the bare patches down at the Fauquier golf course and a robin on our yard pulling out from softening ground the very first earthworm. Taking a shot of the acorn I felt a little bit like I was cheating, since an acorn is a nut maturing in the fall. But it falls to the ground only in the spring to bring forth another tree. Surely. the crocus vigorously pushing through layers of leaves is a sign of spring For the hazelnut flower I had to set my macro setting to less than one cm to capture one of the tiniest flowers in the plant world. Enjoy!

Geese

When will Spring finally come? –  I guess, when the snow will be gone.
