It may be spring, but we are still seeing snow. From last night, the snow on the trees before sunrise, with the glow of dawn through the dark forest.
Sitting around the bird feeder.

Yesterday, a Ruffed Grouse flew hard into the window yesterday, and though sad, the death was quick, and we harvest the breast (nice off the barbeque) and features for future fishing flies. It was a beautiful bird and here are some close ups of the feathers.
From day to day the changes in the sunlight is noticeable, and though still intense in the day, the length of the solar day is quickly disappearing as we approach autumn.
So what remains is the last blooms of the summer.
I am truly been impressed with the Phlox this year, and I guess it shows how nice they can be, when the deer do not eat them.
Just as I drove into our driveway, the sun light on the roadside garden was just perfect. Pulled out the cellphone and a quick picture. If the light is just as nice tonight, maybe I can capture a high resolution image.
Never-the-less, this capture the colours I have been working to!.
