Red Pine Mountain logoIt’s been an unusual spring in Vermont.  A day of record breaking heat followed by a blizzard that unleashed two feet of snow on the Northeast Kingdom.

Snowy days, cold days, gunmetal gray skies, all harbingers of a season that should be long gone but I know winter can’t last forever despite what Mountain Man says. I rejoice in each frigid day knowing the cold will leave when nature decides its time and last night, my patience was rewarded..

Right at sunset.

Hi Shannon, We had very early warm weather this year and then a heavy blizzard and more killing frosts (in the 20s) after that so blooming has been late. I just put my veggies outdoor yesterday and nothing ever goes out before June 1st. One year, Mountain Man lost all his plants to a June 28th killing frost. You just never know here. One thing I love about northern Vermont is that each season (except winter) is so fleeting. It lends a precious beauty to our short lived summer/spring days. Thanks so much for visiting me.

Cindy, Thank you for your kind words. I always say I'm no photographer but the scenery is so beautiful here, the pictures take themselves. I love the fog too and I'd love to see your fog. How wonderful it must be. Oh, what a beautifully descriptive of your adventure in the cemetery. The makings of a short story perhaps? Enjoy your weekend as well and thanks so very much for visiting me.
