Another trace of ice damage from the storm two weeks ago. This enormous tree, second from the left in this photo from most of two years ago, will no longer hang over the end of the spit into the north side of Rice Lake.
This week we had high winds and the often calm lake was churning with waves. These geese, when they took off, were almost whisked away and had to fight to keep their bearings.
A very different mood in these high winds than when the surface is still as glass.
Later this week my first early tulips opened up.
It’s still cool for the season, but the flowers are coming up and hold a bit of the light to reflect back to us when the sun is hiding behind rain clouds.
