Looking backward and forward

Here's an image from late summer. In 2003. It was our first year here and we were out and about a lot exploring. This is part of someone's backyard vegetable and flower garden and their clothesline. It's in a town not far from here. I wonder, if I could find the spot again, what it looks like now?

An image from warmer and drier days.

What I'm looking forward to is getting out of our current winter weather pattern: successive rain squalls with strong wind. It seems to be the typical giboulées de mars (march showers), only it's happening in February. At any rate, we get a little reprieve today. The wind has died down, if only temporarily, and we expect a sunny, albeit chilly, day. The stars are amazingly bright early this morning.

  1. Walt, you say you are stuck for photos....
    although you probably won't be today....
    "Turned out nice again!"

    But if you are still stuck... how about more like "Salt and Pepper"...
    it has taken me three days to realize which abstract bit you photographed...
    very clever... and a nice construct in its own right!

    My first task today is to re-erect our weather station...
    the stake it is attached to has gone...
    and it is leaning at 30 Degrees to the horizontal...
    we are getting temperature and humidity...
    at one foot off the ground... and wind speed'ish...
    but the compass and raingauge read diddly-squat!!

  2. Dreary, windy, raw, cold weather is no fun. We're headed to spring, though, just remember that :)

  3. Isn't it great how beautiful some stones, cinder blocks, and laundry can be. We've been experiencing summer weather here. I wonder if your weather (in milder form, of course) will be headed our way.

  4. tim, I didn't get out with the camera on Wednesday. Zut!

    judy, yup!

    mitch, I'd bet not, our systems normally move toward the northeast, toward Germany.
