Spring’s attempt is foiled again

Dusting on Como Golf Course 12634_StaatsSpring is not known for its consistency.  After tulips had broken through the ground, ice has been off the lakes, and everyone’s thoughts were turning to warmer temperatures, we got a slap of snow.  The temperatures dropped, the winds picked up, and winter came sweeping back into Minnesota.  I headed out before dawn to the Como Golf Course.  The white dusting left some wonderful patterns and allowed the shapes of the trees to stand out in the landscape.  It was still dark enough that the street lights around the lake were lit and glowed a beautiful golden yellow to contrast with the white landscape.  And on the green, the red flag fluttered in defiance of the winter weather.  Undettered, spring will try again this week to get its foothold on our landscape.

    Linda: a very nice photo.
    My wife and I are driving to Arizona – Utah this week; hope to get some nice photos of “hot, dry landscapes” to share.

      Thanks, Dave – I’m sure this photo makes you look forward to a completely different type of scenery. Enjoy the warmth, the red-rocks, and the photo opportunities!
