Skywatch Friday: Skies, snowdrops and supervisor Spunky
I keep thinking we're going to pay bigtime for this almost two weeks of fine weather. Daylight Savings Time always scrambles my circuits a little bit, but it's also so gratifying to walk outside in the morning and not need seven layers of clothes. The plants are responding to the sun's welcoming rays, as my Corylus avellana 'Contorta' shows off against a perfect blue sky yesterday morning.
We're still a long way from being frost free, of course, but that lends its own particular charms to morning walks. These snowdrops look like they're dipped in a bit of ultrafine sugar.
Meanwhile, back indoors, my supervisor Spunky Boomerang thinks I really should stop procrastinating and either get some more writing done, or have a nap with him...
But somehow, I don't want to miss a moment of clear, springlike skies, so I'll wait til well after sunset before I turn in.
I hope your Skywatch Friday is as perfect as the past few days have been for us here in Scotts Bay!
