April snow

This snow was all gone by the afternoon, but the crocus were completely covered by it in the morning.  You can see them there in the shelter made by last year's leaves.  These flowers are natives, so they are very well adapted to the occasional snow blanket and will be fine tomorrow.

Crocus



This is the time of year when things change so very quickly.  A week ago the front yard was completely buried in snow.  Today, the crocus have emerged.  In fact, the crocus came out before the snow drops have!

CDPB Monthly theme day - Heights


Each month, the City Daily Photo Blog community choose a theme and many of us post our interpretation of that theme.  This month, the theme is HeightsCDPB November 2013 Theme Day Click the link for many photos from round the world!

This month is an easy one for me, because I love climbing.  In June and September, I am part of a group of amateur radio operators who set up towers on Mt Greylock, MA as part of a weekend of radio contesting.  And I do a lot of climbing on those weekends!  I was planning on showing the view looking down from the top of 'my' tower, but when I was looking through my pictures I realised I took one with people in it.  I don't often do that, but these ladies knew I was snapping their photo, so I feel OK about it.  I'm about 40 feet up, near the top of the tower as I'm taking this photo.  The view is always spectacular, because I'm above almost all the trees and I can see forever in a full 360 degree arc.

All Hallows' Eve


It's a day when corporate America sells us gruesome masks, fake blood, violent movies and worst of all, candy.  I'm taking a moment to remember those who came before us. Even those who didn't live long enough to receive their name.

A week later...

A week ago, this tree had green leaves mixed in with the orange.  Now they're just blazing orange, and the top has started to shed its leaves.  Taken as I drove by; the windshield needs to be cleaned!
