I've reached the end, alive and, well...alive

April 30, 2013

april showers have turned
from snow to rain
and our lawn’s becoming
green again
winter is cold and long here
so spring is always late
but we have rain again today
so we can celebrate
the lawn
the flowers
the trees
the shrubs
the greening of the land

there might be snow again tonight
with temperatures colder than freezing
but the snow won’t be deep
and the freezing won’t keep
the lawn
and the trees
from their greening

I took these photos in our yard in southeastern Alberta, in the month of May in one or more of the past twelve years we've lived here.

Very sweet and yes, snow will not last for long now that May is here! The bunny !! is so cute hiding there. My son would say "Peter Rabbit!: :)

Thanks for your visit! Yes, I get all silly with my camera, too, around pelicans! Love painting them and even was shocked at how much larger the white ones were compared to the already large brown pelicans!

Love your photos and we share the same kind of yellow tulip, mine just started to bloom!

Happy spring!
