Seasonal Discord

So, things have been looking pretty good these past few days!  The Killdeer have returned, along with more shorebirds and more migratory birds, the bees are buzzing, the land is brown but slowly 'waking up,' the aspen trees look optimistic, the magpies are cheeky and our Ri-dog has water to swim in!!!  Spring really seems to be taking hold!

A quick compilation of star trails and faint aurora borealis.  It was such a beautiful night ... yes, Spring is here!

"Scrreeeeeeech"  "HOLD THAT THOUGHT!"

Somewhere between enjoying a beautiful starlit night sky and morning ... fog, clouds, and drizzle turned to bits of 'white stuff!'

As the evening went on ... more and more of that white stuff fell!

Spring eh?  It would appear we woke up to winter once again!

Despite the contention between Winter and Spring ... our boys made the best of the situation!  Hopefully it was the LAST run with their snowracers!  By the afternoon, the sunshine returned and the snow was gone!

With May knocking on our doorstep ... lets hope Spring and RAIN win any future arguments with Old Man Winter!  


  1. Beautiful spring...isn't this time of year confusing? What will one wear? What will one do? It is hard to plan ahead, eh? Never a dull moment, never a dull photo! Thanks for sharing spring in your part of Alberta! Ahhhhh!

    1. As Albertan's we are a funny bunch! We complain about the weather but would we actually live anywhere else???

  2. Your Magpie shot is spectacular....Frame it!!

    1. Thank you Ted!!! I love my magpie shot ... I think my husband might stick me in a frame if I tried to hang a magpie on our walls though! LOL!
